In a move that seems to have come out of left field, Dark Horse Comics is back in the business of publishing Star Wars comic books, or at least this one trade paperback. The company is a doing a full reprint of the Star Wars Rebels mini comics from the German Star Wars: Rebels Magazine.
Dark Horse Comics lost the publishing rights to Star Wars after the Walt Disney Company bought Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012. Marvel (also owned by Disney) took back the publishing license for “Star Wars” comics which resulted in a complete reboot of the “Star Wars” line in January of 2015. At the time, the reboot was one of the most popular comic book initiatives to hit the industry in years.
Licensing works in weird ways it seems. Kudos to Dark Horse Comics for getting to go back to the well one more time and give fans another look at some of this foreign material.
