Dark Horse Rumored To Lose Star Wars To Marvel; 2013 Last Year For Them

Body

4796 If I was a Dark Horse Star Wars fan I would begin writing letters and petitioning Disney ASAP to keep Star Wars with Dark Horse.

As a Marvel Cosmic fan, I can't even begin to imagine what would happen if Axel Alonso got his hands on the Star Wars properties.

And that is exactly is what is being said to happen after 2013, that Dark Horse will lose the Star Wars license with Marvel taking over.

Of course, this is an obvious no-brainer as Disney owns Marvel and the new movie does come out in 2015.

Also, as we have previously seen before with the Boom! Studios properties that Disney owned, they moved over to Marvel.

The BlueSkyDisney blog has it that Marvel will be creating new Star Wars comics as of around 2015:

The Suits in the know have determined that no new contracts will be given to Dark Horse after the current ones expire. So all new projects after 2013 will be handled internally by Marvel.

 It's not known yet if titles will be worked into the regular line up, or will Marvel create a special branch of the company that deals with Star Wars. It'll take a couple of years for the old deals to work there course, but the stories that Dark Horse have coming down the pipeline will be the last. And you can expect anything new from Marvel dealing with Star Wars to arrive around 2015.

I suppose a Star Wars comic from Pak, Hickman or Remender would be cool, but Bendis or Loeb

Please, someone use the Jedi mind trick on Disney.

"Move along."
