(image) Dark Horse welcomes the first OGN from up-and-coming Portland creators Matt Mair Lowery and Cassie Anderson (creator of the web comic An Ordinary Princess). Their unique sci-fi adventure Lifeformed: Cleo Makes Contact is slated for release on September 6, 2017.
This full-color trade paperback for young adults stars Cleo, a relatable, endearing young heroine.
In the wake of an alien invasion—and her father's death—a young girl must leave behind the life she knows to fight for the future of Earth. Aided by a shape-shifting rebel alien posing as her father, Cleo packs extra snacks for the road as they travel in search of both family and foe. Lifeformed: Cleo Makes Contact follows the unlikely pair as they bond, fight back, and ponder what it means to be human. The power of choice, courage, and unity are examined.

(image) Media Release -- We are excited to announce a new partnership with the popular entertainment brand and cult-hit comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K), which is slated to include a brand-new comic series as well as a variety of Dark Horse–designed products.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 follows the motley crew of a human host and his two robot sidekicks aboard the Satellite of Love. The hapless host, trapped by mad scientists on a satellite in space, is forced to watch some of the most outrageously unfortunate B movies ever created. To keep sane, he's built two robot sidekicks, and together they do a running commentary on the films, affectionately mocking their flaws with inspired wisecracks and acting as a demented movie theater peanut gallery.
To prove that there is still an audience out there, co-creator Joel Hodgson started the MST3K Revival Kickstarter, which resulted in an astonishing combined total of $6,364,229 allotted for new episodes and other licensed merchandise. Dark Horse is one of a number of licensees to sign on for the MST3K consumer products program.
Dark Horse's VP of publishing, Randy Stradley, is overjoyed to be at the helm of working with MST3K. "I first encountered the show in 1992, and immediately fell in love with both the concept and the characters," said Stradley. "I began inquiring about the license in 1993, and now—a mere twenty-four years later—we have Comics Sign!"

(image) Media Release -- Karen Berger, the legendary, award-winning comic book editor and founder of DC Comics' influential imprint Vertigo, will acquire, edit, and oversee Berger Books, a new line of creator-owned comic books and graphic novels to be published by Dark Horse Comics.
The announcement of Berger Books was made at ComicsPRO, the comic book industry retailer event, where Berger was named the winner of the ComicsPRO Industry Appreciation Award earlier today.
"Karen is someone I've always respected and admired. She's a visionary thinker and one of the most highly regarded individuals in the comic book industry," said Dark Horse President and Publisher Mike Richardson. "Her fiercely independent streak and forward-looking storytelling instincts are a perfect match for Dark Horse Comics. We'll have more news in the near future, but today we're thrilled to announce that Karen Berger and Berger Books have found the perfect home at Dark Horse Comics."
"Dark Horse has been at the frontline of independent, creator-owned comics for decades," said Berger. "It's great to be working with a company that has such a rich history of publishing scores of many incredible books by some of the best writers and artists in comics. I'm very fired up about being back in the game in a big way, and to be producing this new line with top, diverse creative talent and exciting, original new voices."
Berger founded Vertigo in 1993 and led the line for twenty years, during which time she oversaw over three hundred properties, including Sandman, V for Vendetta, Preacher, Swamp Thing, Fables, Hellblazer, Y: The Last Man, and 100 Bullets.
"Karen was instrumental in launching the careers of many comic book writers and artists who have gone on to become some of the industry's biggest stars," said Richardson. "Karen has a keen ability to nurture creative voices and I'm personally excited to see the names of new talent alongside the names of the best-selling creators who will launch Berger Books."
As the editor of Berger Books, Berger will continue to work from her home on the East Coast. Berger Books will be branded with both the Berger Books and the Dark Horse Comics logos. Like all Dark Horse books, Berger Books will be distributed by Penguin Random House.
