Dark Horse is pleased to announce the hiring of Kari Torson for the role of Manager of International Licensing!
A graduate of the University of Michigan–Ann Arbor, Kari Torson went on to receive her MA in writing and publishing from Emerson College, Boston. Torson got her start working as a subsidiary rights associate at Simon & Schuster in New York City. From there she worked at Writers House before returning to rights management for children’s books at HarperCollins Publishers. Most recently she worked in foreign rights at Penguin Random House.
“For me, the best storytelling is a perfect blend of text and art, so I’ve always been drawn to comics, advocating for them at every opportunity. Dark Horse writers and artists are some of the most masterful in the industry and I couldn’t be more thrilled to join the Dark Horse team in a position where it’s actually my job to license comics all over the world,” said Torson.
“We are thrilled to have such a bright and energetic person move across the country to join us. Kari will make a great addition to the Dark Horse team,” said Dark Horse’s executive vice president, Neil Hankerson. “Kari’s previous publishing licensing experience will serve her well in her new role as Manager of International Licensing.”
Please join us in congratulating Kari Torson on her past accomplishments and wishing her luck in her new role in the company.
