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.”
Check out a rundown of each of the series below.
Animalheads pre-orders: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, your local comic book shop
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.
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…
