About Dark Horses

Humorous, strange, and artfully drawn worlds are a big part of the Dark Horse publishing catalog. This comic book publisher, established in Milwaukie, Oregon, in 1986, encourages unique and creative ideas. Many of its titles are creator-owned, including the "Hellboy" series and "Sin City," both of which have seen turns as major motion pictures. Other Dark Horse comics are licensed from franchises like "Star Wars," "Aliens," and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." The brand is known for stories that take a different turn, and you are unlikely to find the standard superhero in one of these comics, although Hellboy has saved the world a few times. Fans of the series may also want to indulge in a Dark Horse figure of the characters, including Abe Sapien and Hellboy. Or go retro with complete set of rare Popeye characters from one of eBay's reliable sellers. Get these Dark Horse produced characters in mint condition as an investment. Or take them out of the box to create storylines of your own when no one is looking.
