Re: Star Wars Dark Horse comics disscussion and comments

One of the things that many people wondered after Disney bought Lucasfilm was how long will this relationship continue? Especially since the Mouse owns Marvel, the largest comics publisher in the world. Well, it appears we now have the answer. 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 wish there was some official word other than all these rumors.

Re: Star Wars Dark Horse comics disscussion and comments

What was the largest self contained universe/world that Marvel did a poor job managing?

I hope they will be more carefull with SW considering how huge the franchise is. It makes a good business sense to have a famous franchise if digital comics will be the future.

Re: Star Wars Dark Horse comics disscussion and comments

The Marvel of today is a totally different beast from the one that last had the Star Wars license. Being such a bottom line company now, I can't seem them doing anywhere near as much with Star Wars as Dark Horse currently does. And they really haven't done much with the Disney properties they previously acquired.

It might acutally be better for Lucasfilms to keep Star Wars comics with a company that will produce more books, not less. May make more money off the license that way, IMO.

You can also create more demand for a product by producing less of it and thus improving revenue when you release the product to that greater demand.

It'll be interesting to see where they go with it. I'm hoping we at least get a few good arcs out of the new Legacy.

Looks like there's some possible negation of this rumor. Possible. Randy Stradley shows up in the comments to say "don't believe everything you read on the internet". It's not a total denial, but it's close.
