Dark Horse has announced as a part of their celebrations for Star Wars Day today, that they are releasing two digital comic bundles for May the Fourth. Called MegaBundles, the comics company has released two offers – one being for young readers, a collection of Star Wars comics for all ages costing $30; and the second being a huge deal of over 125 comics for $100!
Both MegaBundles come with an exclusive preview of the upcoming release of The Star Wars, a comic series interpretation of the early original drafts of the first movie by George Lucas, following the adventures of Annakin Starkiller.
The official release from Dark Horse reads as follows:
The comic collection places over three thousand pages of Star Wars comics goodness right at your fingertips. It includes some of our most popular Star Wars series, such as Knights of the Old Republic, Blood Ties, Empire, and Dark Times, as well as some of our newest series, such as Dawn of the Jedi, Agent of the Empire, and our smash-hit series simply titled Star Wars, written by comics legend Brian Wood.
The kids’ collection provides over one thousand pages of Star Wars Adventures and The Clone Wars. Hours of summer entertainment for your little Star Wars fan!
Each MegaBundle comes with an exclusive two-page digital preview of the highly anticipated comics adaptation of The Star Wars, George Lucas’s original-draft screenplay. Written three years before the 1977 film, this first vision of the galaxy far, far away introduces us to Jedi Annakin Starkiller and General Luke Skywalker, as well as a six-foot alien named Han Solo. It’s a tale of fantastic adventures, daring escapes, “laser swords,” and monsters, and is sure to read like no Star Wars you’ve known before!
Speaking frankly, this is a hell of a deal – the pricing is excellent, considering the bulk of digital comics you’ll be getting, and some of the Dark Horse Star Wars titles are exceptional reading – including The Clone Wars readers included in the kids’ collection, I might add.
Dark Horse Digital is available on iOS and Android devices, and can be found in the respective app stores. For those without mobile devices, you can also access Dark Horse Digital and be a part of this deal via your web browser by going to Digital.DarkHorse.Com
