The Rantcor Pit Live #22 - The Circle is Now Complete

Due to some myocks chewing on the power cables, Deep Ellum on Air's live feed was out on February 8, 2015.  None the less the live edition of The Rantcor Pit went forward...just not live.  

In 1977 Marvel Comics published a six-issue adaptation of the science fiction movie Star Wars, likely not realizing a the time what they had on their hands.  Another one hundred and one issues later what began as as just another movie tie-in book completed its nearly nine year run.  There would be a gap in publication of Star Wars comics until Dark Horse picked up the license.

Starting with Star Wars:  Dark Empire, this successful indy publisher would produce hundreds of issues of both ongoing and limited run series as well as reprints of both Marvel comics and daily newspaper comic strips from 1991 through 2014.  

Beginning this year Disney elected to discontinue licensing their newly acquired property to a publisher they did not own themselves and as a result Star Wars is back at Marvel Comics in a big way.
