Dark Horse Comics talked to CBR covering their plans for 2014, preparing for the Marvel news, and what fans can expect in the year of the horse.

CBR News: Gentlemen, I wanted to start out talking about Dark Horse’s overall line right now…

Mike Richardson: You’re not even going to start out with “Star Wars” which everyone’s been calling about for the last three days? [Laughter]

CBR New: Well that too! I think the thing about the news of Star Wars leaving Dark Horse next year to go to Marvel that struck me was that you must have known this was coming. How did you plan around the loss of that license through 2014 and beyond?

Richardson: Well, we’ve known for a long time that Star Wars was going. We couldn’t announce it until Lucasfilm was ready, and they picked the day of January 3, allowing us to get through the holidays without having to deal with it. But we’ve known this for a very long time as we’ve built our schedule. The thing that’s a little bit irritating is hearing this talk of “Well, Dark Horse can’t get by without Star Wars.” Star Wars constituted less than 6% of our bottom line. We’re talking a year in which we’ve had a sensational year. So we’re fine without Star Wars.

But right now, Master Qui-Gon Jinn’s main concern is controlling his headstong Padawan. The homecoming on Telos has proved incredibly difficult for the proud and bitter Xanatos. His difficulties in reconnecting with his father and sister are putting the team of Jedi in peril as they near the shocking facts behind the burgeoning civil war . . .

Today Jedi – The Dark Side #3 hits comic stores. Written by Scott Allie, illustrated by Mahmud Asrar, colored by Paul Mounts, and cover art by Stéphane Roux.

On Telos IV, a priestess has been assassinated, and the planet is on the verge of civil war. Only Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan Xanatos can protect the planet’s leader-who just happens to be Xanatos’s father-and stop the insurgents. But Xanatos is succumbing to his own long-buried resentments and may soon be more of a hindrance than a help.

Twenty years before his fateful meeting with Anakin Skywalker, Qui-Gon Jinn had his first encounter with the dark side . . .

Interview with Jedi – The Dark Side writer Scott Allie

Scott Allie, writer for Jedi – The Dark Side, was gracious enough to answer our questions about Twitter, continuity, and Qui-Gon Jinn.

Here’s a snippet:

Qui-Gon is this wise and brilliant Jedi, obsessed with having a deep relationship with the Force, and developing his instincts, trusting intuition—and it leads him to absolutely demanding that he be allowed to train the guy who will become Vader, the greatest mass murderer in the galaxy. It makes me question his relationship to the Force. In Xanatos, we have a young Jedi who gets corrupted not by the Sith, but by other factors. There’s something really interesting there.
