Netflix's journey into the comic book realm just hit warp speed.
Netflix and Dark Horse Entertainment have announced that they've entered into an agreement in which Netflix will get a first look at TV and film rights for all of Dark Horse's intellectual property.
Netflix and Dark Horse had already established a relationship with Netflix producing Dark Horse content; including the successful The Umbrella Academy TV series and the decidedly less successful film Polar. This deal formalizes the two company's burgeoning relationship and both sides are already exploring future joint projects. In addition to The Umbrella Academy partnership, Dark Horse Comics is also home to the comic book version of Netflix's super hit Stranger Things.
