Here is some good news for Dark Horse Comics – following the success of the Umbrella Academy and Polar on Netflix, the streaming media service has set up a first look deal with the publisher.
“We are very excited about this new arrangement with the talented people at Netflix,” said Mike Richardson, Dark Horse Entertainment’s 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.”
“Following the success of The Umbrella Academy, we’re excited to extend our relationship with Dark Horse Comics,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. “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.”
This is a very interesting agreement because Dark Horse has a huge number of original properties, Netflix could tap into. So, the big question is – what original Dark Horse property do you want to see Netflix take on? Concrete? Flaming Carrot? Does Dark Horse still own the rights to Sin City?
