Media Release — It was announced today that Micha Hershman has joined the Dark Horse marketing department. In his thirteen-year tenure with Borders Group, Hershman developed an extensive professional experience with comics, graphic novels, science fiction, horror, and related merchandise.

“Dark Horse is a world-class organization, unmatched in its dedication to comics, their creators, and their fans,” said Hershman. “I couldn’t be more excited to join Mike Richardson and his team.”
“We are extremely happy to have Micha here at Dark Horse,” said President Mike Richardson. “The experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm he brings to our marketing team will be a huge resource as we look to grow Dark Horse over the coming years.”
