Klingt sehr nett.
Der Comic Verlag startet gleich mit zwei Labels:

M Press - eher für die ernsteren Themen (Lebensberichte, Romane)
DH Press - für die Pop-Kultur-Themen (Sekundärliteratur, Artbooks)


Having already made inroads with a few projects, Dark Horse will debut two new prose lines at next week?s Book Expo America: M Press and DH Press.

M Press? debut book will be Ursula Bacon's Shanghai Diary, a non-fiction book about an 11 year old Jewish girl?s experiences in 1930s Shanghai as her family fled from the approaching Holocaust.

Slated for a September release, Shanghai Diary is also in development as a feature film penned by Frida screenwriter Clancy Sigal.

DH Press, in turn, will be the home to more pop-culture related titles. Initial releases from the imprint include Don Bluth's The Art of Storyboard in October. As Dark Horse describes it, the book is a ?one-of-a-kind textbook by animation legend Don Bluth describing in detail the technical and artistic process involved in crafting storyboards for animated films.?

Following The Art of Storyboard, DH Press will release Kong: King of Skull Mountain in November. Dark Horse describes the novel as a ?fully authorized, lavishly illustrated all new novel that acts as both sequel and prequel to the all-time classic film. Acclaimed fantasy artist Joe De Vito and top fantasy and science fiction writer Brad Strickland join forces to create an interactive visual-narrative storytelling experience.?

In November, DH Press will release PinUp: The Illegitimate Art by Jim Silke.
