"Dark Horse" On Netflix



Dark Horse Entertainment, owners of online comic shop "Things From Another World" and publishers of "The Mask", "Timecop", "Hellboy", "R.I.P.D.", "Polar", "Duckman", "Axe Cop", "Dark Matter" and "Sin City", have entered into a production deal with Netflix to exclusively adapt more Dark Horse titles for the streaming service, thanks to the success of "The Umbrella Academy", now in its second season:


"We are very excited about this new arrangement with the talented people at Netflix," said Mike Richardson, Dark Horse president and founder. 


"We have strong creative relationships as well as a large content library to work with, and, as we have seen with our recent projects, Netflix is the perfect partner to bring our stories to fans around the world."


Adds Netflix's Cindy Holland, "The Netflix teams are already working in deep collaboration with Dark Horse to identify projects...


"...beyond the world of traditional superheroes...


"...branching into horror, fantasy and family entertainment — that we think our members will love."


In addition to Netflix, Syfy is in development of a live-action adaptation of the Dark Horse Comics title "Resident Alien", by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse.
