Star Wars moving from Dark Horse to Marvel

Marvel announced today that they will begin printing Star Wars comics and graphic novels beginning in 2015. This was anticipated as many guessed Disney would try and integrate all of their assets together into major divisions. Their acquisition of both Lucasfilm and Marvel was pretty much a given that this would happen. Dark Horse, the second largest to DC and Marvel, is losing a property they have held since 1991. Marvel previously printed Star Wars comics from 1977 to 1986, but they left the franchise to focus on superheroes.

And yes, this will allow for Star Wars and Marvel crossover comics. Prepare yourselves for the inevitable Jedi and Avengers collaborations.
