Dark Horse Comics cuts ties with editor Scott Allie following sexual assault claims

Former Dark Horse editor Scott Allie is no longer with the company following more allegations of sexual assault.

Late in the day yesterday, allegations emerged surrounding longtime editor and comics pro Scott Allie. Shawna Gore recounted on her Twitter account a pattern of sexual assault from Allie that began in 1999. The pattern started two years into her time working at Dark Horse Comics and went on “for years.” She also mentioned a 2015 incident where Allie assaulted another writer, which was reported on back in 2015.

Gore’s tweet was retweeted over 2,000 times with over 5,000 likes and 419 replies at the time of this report. Longtime collaborator Mike Mignola took to Twitter a few hours later publically cutting times with Allie, and Dark Horse comics followed suit.

Back in 2017, Allie stepped down from his position at Dark Horse, though he continued to work as a freelance writer and editor in some capacity with the company. Dark Horse followed up their tweet with a statement on Allie as well as their commitment to keeping their employees “safe, secure and supported in the workplace.”

Allie worked primarily at Dark Horse Comics from 1994 to 2017, working on books like B.P.R.D., The Umbrella Academy, and Abe Sapien.

This news comes just over a week after other women came forward about sexual misconduct concerning Cameron Stewart and Warren Ellis.
