Dark Horse Books and Tapas team up to publish webcomics in 2023

Animalheads, Signals, The Flying Ship, and Tomahawk Angel.

Dark Horse Comics and Tapas have teamed up to get popular webcomics into print. Starting in October 2023, readers will be able to purchase print editions of Animalheads, Signals, The Flying Ship, and Tomahawk Angel. This is another example of Dark Horse teaming with digital comic publishers, as they did with Comixology, to publish popular digital-only titles in print.

“We couldn’t be more excited about this partnership,” said Alex R. Carr, Sr. Director of Publisher Development at Tapas Entertainment. “Seeing these creators and their stories in the Dark Horse pantheon is a dream come true for all involved.”
