Yoe Books Launches at Dark Horse with a Harvey Award-Winning Anthology

Dark Horse Comics is proud to announce its publishing partnership with Yoe Books. Craig Yoe, called by USA Today “the comic book genre’s master archaeologist,” has written or edited nearly 100 books in the field of comics and cartooning history, was Creative Director/Vice President/General Manager of Jim Henson’s Muppets and a Creative Director at Nickelodeon and Disney, and has won multiple Eisner Awards and the Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. Along with co-publisher, author, and creative Clizia Gussoni, Yoe Books has an ambitious publishing schedule planned with Dark Horse.

First in the lineup is BLAB! Volume 1, arriving in Spring 2023. The Harvey Award-winning anthology of cutting-edge comics, art, and culture created by award-winning editor and designer Monte Beauchamp returns to its comics roots with a stellar lineup of contributors. Noah Van Sciver depicts the tragic demise of Crime Does Not Pay editor Robert Wood. Ryan Heshka recounts the rise and fall of Superman creators Siegel and Shuster. Sasha Velour portrays the making of film director F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu. Children’s book illustrator Giselle Potter examines Peter Rabbit author Beatrix Potter’s passion as a naturalist. Illustrated articles include the history of the gorilla and a report on UFOs. All this and much more included in Comics and Stories That Will Make You BLAB

Mike Richardson, Founder and CEO of Dark Horse, notes: “Dark Horse has had a long working relationship with Craig Yoe and Clizia Gussoni and their company. Now I’m excited to announce that our relationship has become official, with an overall deal distributing a new line of books from Yoe Studios. Craig has always had a keen eye toward comics and has produced some of the industry’s most unique publications. That legacy continues as our first joint offering features BLAB! Volume 1, an anthology of cutting-edge comics curated by Monte Beauchamp.”

“I’m beyond excited that Yoe Books and Dark Horse have become partners!” said Yoe. “Monte Beauchamp’s superlative and inventive Blab! comics anthology is just the first in a varied line of must-have titles coming from Yoe Books and Dark Horse.”

“To be published by both Yoe Books and Dark Horse is a dream come true!” said Beauchamp.
