Dynamite Buys Dabel Brothers Titles

Comics publisher Dynamite Entertainment has acquired rights to the titles owned by Dabel Brothers Productions, and will publish and distribute those titles starting in April 2010. Dabel Brothers is best known for publishing comics adaptations of works by George R.R. Martin, Dean Koontz, Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, and many other SF/fantasy writers.

Founders Les and Ernst Dabel will continue to acquire properties and work with authors, but Dynamite will take over production, marketing, sales, and all other aspects of the business. Dabel Brothers has a troubled history, with delayed projects, complaints from some authors about unpaid debts, and partnerships with other companies ending abruptly.
