Marvel Comics’ return to the Star Wars universe begins on January 14th 2015. The license to publish Star Wars comics was in the hands of Dark Horse Comics but that changed once Disney (Marvel’s parent company) purchased Lucasfilm.
I expected the launch of Marvel’s Star Wars series to be big, but it could be huge. ComicBook.com reports that Star Wars #1 will sell over a million copies when it hits shelves on January 15th. If their information is true, that would make Star Wars #1 the best selling comic in the last 20 years by a wide margin. The Force is with Marvel.
