With the big news that Disney is turning the Star Wars comic property in 2015, it means that we might get to see the return of a heroine in a pink bikini and a seven foot tall green rabbit. ¬†Which makes us wonder…


Is there a lot of potential and promise having the Star Wars comic property moving back to Marvel?

    Well I don’t think this will be a big issue Marvel has plenty of very talented writers and artists that I am sure would be thrilled to work on Star Wars books.

    The only issue I would have is if they then try to make Star Wars an official are normal part of the Marvel Universe, that would not be fun to see that mess.(well kind of in a huge train wreck kind of way, but please Marvel don’t do that)

    I think lately Marvel has shown themselves to be willing to do interesting takes on old concepts. Thor God of Thunder and Hawkeye both took older characters and told new and awesome stories. I voted yes because I believe they absolutely have the potential to put out some amazing stories. There will probably be fewer titles, but with the right creative team it has a ton of potential

    I think this is the shake-up Star Wars comics needs. I was an avid EU reader in both comics and prose, but it feels like there’s nothing too interesting in Dark Horse Star Wars these days, and I haven’t found any titles that grab me. IT will be interesting to see what Marvel can do with a fresh approach.

    I think the last time I bought a Dark Horse Star Wars comic was the Dark Empire II. I’ve never been a hardcore EU person, so if Marvel can grab my attention, I’d call that a win.

    I don’t think so. I forsee Xmen Crossovers (Like they dod with Star trek a dogs age ago) and thenback burnering the various series when the next Avengers film comes out and they want the Iron Man and Cap to have the attention.

    I’m gonna wait and see. I can see a lot of potential for greatness, but I can also see the potential for disaster.

    Marvel did a pretty decent job last time they held the rights, so I’m hopeful, but I’m not leaning one way or the other until I start seeing what comes out.

    I love Star Wars. Controversially, I actually love all 6 movies (though naturally I prefer the real trilogy to the prequel one). But, for some reason, I’ve never got in to the comics. And I’m really not a Marvel guy. However this might be just the move to get me hooked. I’ll have to wait and see…

    How do you “wait and see” if something has potential?

    I voted no, based on Marvel’s history with licensed properties, especially Star Wars. What they did in the past was disappointing, to put it mildly. The art didn’t match the characters, the stories barely had anything to do with Star Wars canon and really… giant green bunnies? Give me a break. Marvel HAS been doing a lot of good stuff recently, so there is a faint hope they won’t botch it this time, but I won’t be standing in line at the comic book store waiting for good things to happen.

    Well, you have a lot of talent at Marvel and in-house is best if you have the talent, so I’d have to wait and see myself. Both companies have done good stuff and bad stuff with Star Wars. Marvel made some weird choices back in the day, but no one can tell me everything Dark Horse did was awesome, so we’ll see in 2015.

    I think there’s a lot of potential. I’m a big fan of Marvel and I like what they’ve done with other properties, like “The Dark Tower” and “Halo”. I’m not sure there’s necessary more potential than Dark Horse, who did a superb job with the franchise for years. What I’m hoping is that Marvel brings the best of both worlds . . . that they use elements of the Expanded Universe while still using this as opportunity for a “fresh start” to the Star Wars universe.
