Dark Horse only ships 20 comics a month? I guess losing the Star Wars license was a big hit to them, I wonder if they may end up going bankrupt in the next few years. Wonder what will happen to Usagi Yojimbo then.

Dark Horse also has Hellboy... can't think of anything else they publish, though.

I also can't believe IDW shipped out 59 comics that month. I mean other than their big series like TMNT, Transformers, My Little Pony, and Star Trek...I can't think of much else to make them hit 59 comics.

They really have that many series going? I have no idea what else they publish.

They have the rights to the Alien and Predator franchises.

GI Joe, Doctor Who, and some original titles... The October Faction and Locke & Key are both great reads.

Huh, I never knew those had comics. Shouldn't be surprised though, huh?

I also didn't remember that they published Sin City... thanks, Wikipedia.

I picked up some Turok from them about five years ago. So they have some licenses that could help them out. Like the Alien title Spike mentioned in this thread. Those plus other license deals could keep them a float.

Yeah, but Star Wars was huge... HUGE.

Not 100% sure Dark Horse will last without that license. They better start scouting some new talent!

Uncle Scrooge is the only other one that comes to mind for me. Although I think it is usually one of the lowest sellers for IDW.

I never even knew IDW existed as a company before they got the TMNT licensed. Always knew about Image and Dark Horse.

IDW as a company is only a little over 10 years old too.

Dark Horse will probably be fine. Star Wars might have been their biggest seller, but Hellboy and its spinoffs were always right up there, too. And it was started by Hamill himself due to being a big comic book fan, so I'm sure that helps.
