Dark Horse Comics Reportedly Looking to Sell to a Hollywood Studio
Dark Horse Comics may be preparing for a major Hollywood sale, according to recent industry speculation.
Lucas Shaw, an entertainment industry reporter for Bloomberg, broke the details in a newsletter focused on production companies selling their IP to major businesses. "Add comic book publisher Dark Horse Comics to the list," Shaw wrote. "The company is working with an adviser to weigh options that could include a sale, according to people familiar with the matter. A representative for Dark Horse couldn't be reached for comment."
As examples of other companies following a similar strategy, the Bloomberg newsletter points to Endeavor, which sold its studio subsidiary Endeavor Content -- responsible for co-producing shows like Hulu's Normal People -- to South Korean media company CJ ENM in November.
