When it comes to collecting webcomics and distributing them through a known publisher, today is your day! Dark Horse Books has teamed with Tapas Entertainment to bring many of the fan-favorite webcomics to print.
It all kicks off in October 2023, as fans can add Animalheads, Signals, The Flying Ship, and Tomahawk Angel to their comic book library.
Animalheads by writer Son M (Thief of the Heights, Death’s Diner) and artist Sam Curtis (A Vampire in Paris, Drac, Son of Dante) is a slam-dunk of an action thriller comic! When four best friends enter adulthood with no job prospects and the insatiable pressures of family hanging over them, they get creative—the more dangerous the gig, the richer the reward. What starts off as a part-time venture scaring people quickly spirals out of control, pulling them headfirst into a waking nightmare when they unknowingly cross a violent crime syndicate. Now, their survival is on a knife’s edge as they become the newest outfit in the criminal underworld. The volume arrives on October 10, 2023.
Signals is a psychic suspense story that features writing and art by Nika (Love Debut, Secrets in the Silk). Mel Song is an unlikely fit for a crack investigator. In her downtime she loves watching soap operas in her pajamas, eating instant ramen, and internet shopping. But she has one secret weapon: the ability to read minds. Still, Mel can’t afford to get complacent. Not when there is a fresh threat brewing in the shadows of New York City… Signals arrives on October 17, 2023.
The Flying Ship is a young adult LGBT+ fantasy story by writer and artist Jem Milton (Polly Who?, The Pronoun Book), sure to transport readers to a mystical world of intrigue! After being stranded in a forgotten military outpost, grumpy Dobrinia sets out on a quest to marry a princess. But in the vast Tzardom of Glas, where magic has been outlawed, troubled histories can catch up with even a flying ship. Queer adventure, humor, and heartfelt friendships star in this fantastical tale that truly feels like it’s for everyone. The Flying Ship lands at your LCS on October 25, 2023.
Tomahawk Angel is a story written and illustrated in a traditional manga format by award-winning creator Odysseas Theodoratos, aka Mangaka Ody (Subject Zero, After Darkness).

Guided by an artificial superintelligence, a ruthless scientist unleashes hell on Earth to preserve only a fraction of humankind. Love and war await as the mysteries of this corrupt new world unfold!
