Star Wars Is Staying With Dark Horse…For Another Year At Least


star warsWhen Star Wars was purchased by Disney, many fans were worried Dark Horse would lose the rights to make comic books for the franchise. Disney also own Marvel, so it seemed like a pretty safe bet that the House of Mouse would want their own comic book publisher handling, unarguably, their biggest franchise. But today It appears that Star Wars will still be at Dark Horse at least for the entirety of 2014.

Bleeding Cool had a rundown of some of Dark Horse‘s announcements at the Diamond Retailer Summit yesterday.  The site had the details on all the Star Wars related news:

First, they assured retailers that even with the Disney buyout of LucasArts, Star Wars will remain at Dark Horse for at least the entirety of 2014.

They will continue to make Darth Vader miniseries, Star Wars Legacy will remain an ongoing book and will alternate between artists every six issues and the mini-series based on George Lucas’ original drafts, The Star Wars, will have a radically different logo to differentiate it.

So Dark Horse will have another full year, at the least, to tell Star Wars stories and get the highly anticipated The Star Wars series out. After 2014 it’s all up in the air. Marvel may well take over control of the comics, or a new deal could be reached to allow Dark Horse to keep on making some of the best Star Wars comics in the franchise’s history. What do you think? Do you hope Dark Horse holds on past 2014?
