Now That's Rubbing it In: Marvel Debuts Star Wars Comics on comiXology

How is Dark Horse holding up?

Source: Press Release

Marvel took over the Star Wars license this year from Dark Horse, and they didn't wait long to put the back catalog up on digital comics platform comiXology. The comics appear to be mostly available in omnibus form for twenty bucks a piece, though there are some variations. Pretty much all of that money, by the way, is pure profit for Marvel. As for Dark Horse, they're taking things about as well as could be expected.

"We're not upset about this at all," proclaimed Dark Horse Editor in Chief Scott Allie, quickly hiding a browser window on his laptop where he was obsessively looking through Star Wars' Facebook page. "Companies and properties move on, you know? We're doing fine."

"Hey, can we interest you in some John Carter: Warlord of Mars comics?" Allie asked us, flaunting his digital store's involvement with Dynamite's comics based on the formerly Marvel-held license. "They're just as good! Hey, if you see Star Wars, would you mention that you saw us with John Carter?"

At press time, multiple sources reported that Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso was walking conspicuously around Dark Horse's home town of Milwaukie, Oregon with a wookie on his arm just to make Dark Horse even more jealous, but it turned out to be Jason Aaron without a shirt on. Check out comiXology to pay exorbitant prices for stuff you could have gotten on deep discount a few weeks ago.
