Netflix/Dark Horse: Dark Horse just signed what is known as a “First Look” deal with Netflix giving the streaming giant the rights to option any Dark Horse property before they shop it around to other production companies. Does that mean Netflix is trying to compete with Disney/Marvel or are they just trying to capitalize on the success of Umbrella Academy? This IS the second deal Netflix has inked with a comic company, after Millarworld (the Mark Millar run comic house).
