The Albatross Funnybooks imprint from Eric Powell has been added to the Dark Horse library ...

Eric Powell's talents will be included in his new Albatross Funnybooks imprint, as will Brendon Small's Galaktikon and Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar's Pug Davis.

According to Dark Horse, The Goon is returning to Dark Horse after finding a new publication under Albatross Funnybooks in 2019. That's not all, a The Goon film is currently in development at Netflix.

"I couldn't be happier to be bringing Albatross back as an imprint," said Powell. "This partnership will allow me to concentrate more on what I want to be doing, making books. I'm very excited for what the future holds and the new opportunities to be discovered."

This is the fourth imprint Dark Horse has launched this year with its creators, with Kevin Smith launching Secret Stash Press, Matt Kindt launching Flux House, and Stan Sakai launching Dogu Publishing at the publisher.

“Eric and The Goon are old friends of Dark Horse,” said Dark Horse President Mike Richardson. “Bringing The Goon here with his Albatross imprint feels like a homecoming for all of us. Eric is one of comics' most well-known artists, and we can’t wait to show you what he’s been working on.”
