Thanks for this. Am registered with Comixology and now Dark House and they have provided me with months of free reading material. Sadly, I'm EXACTLY the kind of customer they want as I keep buying more issues!

Posted a couple of days ago. Debated a fair bit. Got some already, and don't have time for them unfortunately!
Be interesting to see if they drop the price again at the very last minute. It'll be their last ever chance to make some money from the Star Wars brand.
So quality of writing is completely disregarded in worth if a story is non canon ? oO
good shout! i forgot to change it to pounds :)
I'm a big Star Wars fan but £200 for something that the new Films will completely disregard is out of order. I've read just about every book released that is set during IV-Vi and after, so we'll over 100 books. All that will now be irrelevant and so some of it should be. However I fail to see the point in buying fiction of fiction that will add nothing to the universe we all know. My heart is disapponted but my head says its a good thing to wash some Lucas approved nonsense down the pan. Here's to 18/12/2015.
$300 not pounds, so about £193-ish using Google to give a rough exchange value.
I should add that newsletter subscribers get an extra 10% with code DHCYBER14 - but not sure if it works for non subscribers.
its not cold this deal its hoth... cue groans
The dark horse Star Wars comics are awesome. If this includes all 24 Star Wars Tales then you're in for a treat
Sometimes I wonder what makes a deal hot... a 77% discount is somehow cold. And yet £1 off an SSD is blazing hot.. I'm not bothered, it just strikes me as odd. Or maybe people have had enough of Star Wars day. (_;)
I saw this offer this morning, I personally thought it was a great deal. It might be worth mentioning there are apps on both Google Play and the App Store to download so these can be viewed on tablet's/smartphones. Heat added.
Forgive the late reply daBluone, Yes it is currently restricted to the Dark Horse applications/DRM on Windows Android and Apple devices, all can be downloaded onto the app and viewed offline at any given time, I find I prefer the cinematic like experience of single panel viewing, with two taps of the screen your taken two the next panel, on a vibrant screen like my Galaxy Note it's very enjoyable. Given the prohibitive pricing of the good old paper comic, I see no viable platform other than application/DRM like Dc COMICS and Dark horse, besides P2P and the legal implications plus all the viruses and spam ware that come as standard. I'd be happy to hear of any alternative platforms or your preferred DRM, as it is at the moment all my comics are split between the two forms of DRM, it'd me nice to have a la Steam of the comics world everything in one place but at present it's all somewhat restrictive.
Digital access only not download?
Received the Dark horse news letter this morning, I believe it to be a limited time promotion 3 day sale Fri Sat Sun, my apologies in advance if I'm mistaken.
Thanks for posting. Purchased :)
