It was announced via Bloomberg that Dark Horse Comics is currently working with a bank/advisor that could lead to the sale of the company. They are weighing other options in addition to a potential sale.
While the pandemic has caused sales to increase across the board in the industry, the supply chain disruption and paper shortages are now having the opposite effect. With demand being at an all-time high, many companies are now facing delays and limited quantities with restock options becoming further and further apart. One of the ways to alleviate this is for a company to sell its content library.
We have already seen this with a sale of J-Novel Club to Kadokawa, the main company that owns Yen Press. Could Dark Horse be the next to be scooped up?
Dark Horse does publish manga; however, they are mainly known for publishing comic series such as Hellboy and Sin City.
