Rogue One - Cassian & K-2SO Special 1 is a canon one-shot comic book that shows how Cassian Andor met the Imperial security droid K-2SO prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The issue was written by Duane Swierczynski, illustrated by Fernando Blanco, and published on August 9, 2017 by Marvel Comics. It was later collected in the trade paperback Star Wars: Rogue One Adaptation.
Cassian Andor is one of the top intelligence agents in the ranks of the Rebel Alliance, ably assisted by his reprogrammed Imperial security droid, K-2SO. But naturally, the two weren't always on the same side of the Galactic Civil War. Now, for the first time, read the story of the pair's first contentious meeting! It is very likely not to go well.
In the direct edition, the printing credits mistakenly name the issue Star Wars: Rogue One - Cassian & K2-SO Special 1, with K-2SO misspelled.

Notes and references
- Rogue One - Cassian & K-2SO Special 1 takes place after the formation of the Rebel Alliance, but prior to the Battle of Scarif. Star Wars: On the Front Lines dates the foundation of the Rebel Alliance 2 years prior to the Battle of Yavin, or 2 BBY, and Star Wars Helmet Collection 79 (Highlights of the Saga: The Battle of Scarif) places the Battle of Scarif in 0 BBY. Therefore Rogue One - Cassian & K-2SO Special 1 takes place some time between Between 2 and 0 BBY
