We present to you the juiciest comic news from Comic-Con ... because someone’s got to do it.
AH, San Diego Comic-Con. How we love you so. Even though we’re not there, our inner fanboy compelled us to seek out and absorb every bit of information that we could sniff out in that maelstrom of pop culture.
This year, it seems that the endless stream of movie and TV revelations drowned out the comic-related news a little. So we decided to dive deep into the multiverse of Comic-Con to search for some of the most interesting comic-related news, just to save you the trouble. You’re welcome.
Star Wars goes back to Marvel
Poor Dark Horse. After years of minding its own business, churning out comic after comic for Star Wars, in swoops Disney to blow up that particular cash cow by the simple act of ... buying over the entire franchise, lock, stock and barrel.
And if that wasn’t insult enough, Marvel (which used to publish Star Wars comics way before Dark Horse, it has to be said) had to go and make a HUGE announcement that it would be releasing three Star Wars comics in 2015, even before Dark Horse’s licence runs out.
