SDCC ’11 | Dark Horse’s Star Wars comics go digital
Dark Horse announced at the Dark Horse/Star Wars panel today that it is adding Star Wars comics to its the Dark Horse digital store. Over 50 titles are available right now, including Star Wars: Crimson Empire, Marvel’s adaptation of Episode IV: A New Hope, The Clone Wars, Knights of the Old Republic, Legacy: War, Knight Errant, The Old Republic, Jedi: The Dark Side, and Darth Vader and the Lost Command. Dark Horse will continue to add both new and backlist Star Wars titles to their digital store weekly. The price point for single-issue comics is $1.99, but there are some bargains: KOTOR #1 and Clone Wars #1 are free, and Crimson Empire #1, Knight Errant #1, and The Old Republic #1 are priced at 99 cents. And it looks like the store is offering a discount on bundles of these comics, as it does with others, with a six-issue arc of Star Wars: Legacy, for example, priced at $8.99 instead of $11.99.
