7 Dark Horse ‘Star Wars’ Comics You Must Read Before Marvel Wipes Them Out… All Of Them

00_VaderHeader

If you listened hard when Disney announced that it had bought Lucasfilm, you could hear it: millions of expanded universe stories suddenly crying out in terror, and suddenly silenced. For the last 23 years, Dark Horse Comics has been adding to the Star Wars saga, publishing a host of comics set in that galaxy far, far away, partnering with Lucasfilm to help weave a vibrant tapestry of stories, characters and settings to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the films, books, video games, trading card games, RPG handbooks, and (ugh) Holiday Specials.

Well, no more. Starting in 2015, Disney's handing the publishing of any and all new Star Wars comics over to Marvel Comics, with an all new, optimized-for-corporate-synergy canon that will spread across all their media platforms. Anything that's not a movie (especially one of the Original Trilogy movies), or a Clone Wars cartoon, will be unceremoniously Order 66-ed out of existence, giving future filmmakers a clean-ish slate to make movies (and money) on. But what about all those Dark Horse comics? That's where we come in with 7 Dark Horse Star Wars comics you should track down before they disappear.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Fan Art Awakens

Star Wars The Force Awakens Fan Art
Dan Hipp

As cynical and bitter and disdainful that most right thinking people have become with respect to the subject of Star Wars movies over the last decade or so, it is difficult not to view the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser with, at the very least, an eyebrow raised in curiosity. The tense 80-second teaser for JJ Abrams' sequel to Return of the Jedi stirred some of the psychic wall left erected in many viewers' thoughts after the abominable prequel trilogy seemed to have destroyed all remaining affection for the once beloved trilogy, and through the cracks has come the first sprays of that by which we can best judge cultural affection for a thing: fan art.

Dark Horse Has A Humble Bundle, Too, And It’s All ‘Star Wars’ Comics

Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 10.58.25 PM

Marvel Comics is taking over the Star Wars franchise, but not until next year. So why shouldn't the longtime steward of the franchise, Dark Horse, have some fun with it and help out a worthy cause while it can?

Dark Horse is the latest in a long line of publishers to offer up a Humble Bundle comics package, but unlike the others, its offering is themed: strictly Star Wars books. Among the titles up for grabs are the first volume of the Star Wars Omnibus: A Long Time Ago (which collects the classic Marvel series from the '70s), the first volume of the Empire series, the entire Darth Maul: Death Sentence miniseries, and a lot more.

Guardians And X-Men Clash In ‘Black Vortex’; Peggy Carter Returns In ‘Operation S.I.N.’; Next ‘Star Wars’ Comic Unveiled [NYCC]

Marvel is planning its first big cosmic event since the end of the Dan Abnett/Andy Lanning-penned Annihilation/War of Kings cycle that ran from 2006 to 2010. (Or last year's Infinity, if you count that, but that was all about Earth, so we don't.) Black Vortex will cross over between Guardians of the Galaxy, the space-bound All-New X-Men, Cyclops, Legendary Star-Lord, Nova, Captain Marvel, and more.

Marvel also announced Operation S.I.N., by Kathryn Immonen and Rich Ellis, which serves as both a prequel of sorts to the recent Original Sin event and a tie-in to Marvel's Agent Carter TV show; and Kanan: The Last Padawan, a five issue mini series also written by Greg Weisman and illustrated by Pepe Larraz, tying in to the Star Wars: Rebels animated series.

The ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Batmobile Was Stolen… By A Stormtrooper (Sort Of, Not Really)

Batman vs Superman Stormtrooper Batmobile
Zack Snyder, Twitter

A pretty wacky rumor sprung up over the weekend. It seems that, according to certain sources, the Batmobile from 'Batman vs Superman' had been stolen from the set, which meant that some car thief was driving around Detroit in their brand new tank. The rumor was quickly put to rest, but not before director Zack Snyder was able to joke about it.
