Dark Horse Comics Wants to be Acquired

According to Heidi MacDonald of The Comics Beat, Dark Horse Comics wants some bigger company to acquire it and utilize any intellectual properties (IPs) it has--that one assumes aren't already creator-owned. Dark Horse was one of the largest independently owned comic publishers for a long period of time before a chunk was sold to the Chinese investment firm, Visionary Vanguard, in 2018. Still, a majority stake being acquired by some other company interested in the content library Dark Horse has would possibly result in some cool stuff being made into movies or television shows. I doubt the price would be anywhere near what Disney paid when it acquired Marvel, but there would still be plenty of ones and zeroes in a deal. We shall see where this all goes.
