There have been many reports of problems at Dabel Brothers productions which have varied from late payments to creators to giving up titles in lieu of payment.  Yesterday, Dynamite Entertainment announced it had signed an agreement to acquire all of the Dabel Brothers titles to be placed under the Dynamite Entertainment brand.

Dynamite will immediately assume creative development, production, printing, marketing and sales for all titles handled by Dabel Brothers Publishing.  This includes books that were in the works and projects not yet announced.  For the bookstore market, all graphic novels (unless pre-existing agreements prohibit from doing so) will be published by Dynamite and distributed through Diamond Book Distributors.

“Dynamite has impressed us with their ability to market their titles to such a broad audience,” said Vice President, Les Dabel in a prepared statement.  “We are extremely happy about this transition, and I am stepping back now to let Dynamite do what they do best.”

One good thing about the Dabel Brothers is that the company was able to bring some high profile projects to the comic book world.  Now it looks like the titles can flourish under the Dynamite banner.
