The Explanation Of How C-3PO Got His Red Arm Slips From December To February

STWC3PO2015001_DC11The Star Wars Special: C-3P0 #1 is a new upcoming comic from Marvel, telling the story of why and how C-3PO gets a shiny red new arm in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie.

It was intended to be published the week after the movie came out, on the 23rd December.

But Bleeding Cool understands that it has now slipped two months, until 24th February.

By James Robinson and Tony Harris, while a natural inclination might be to blame them for delays, I understand from well connected sources that this is down to "creative approvals".

The bane of licensed comics, those…
