Classic Star Wars comics are on sale for the last time... ever

Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

Every Star Wars comic ever published by Dark Horse Comics is on sale right now for 50 percent off at their website. As it turns out, Dark Horse will no longer have the rights to sell Star Wars licensed comics after Jan. 1 but you can still continue to access the titles you own through their online store.

After the first of the year Disney will be bringing the Star Wars comics license back into the fold, publishing a trio of comics through Marvel. Dark Horse has been publishing them since 1991, when Dark Empire was released.

The stories they have told for the past 23 years are, for the most part, now considered non-canonical. Earlier this year LucasFilm pruned the many branching storylines in favor of a more unified canon in the lead up to the new Star Wars flims, which will begin to arrive in theaters next year with The Force Awakens.

Note that if you've got $300 burning a hole in your pocket, Dark Horse is also willing to sell you access to the entire collection.
