I’ve been a fan of Kevin’s films for years. The fact is, we have much in common. We’ve both worked in our own comic shops worked in the film business, but most of all, we have a passionate love for the comics medium. So it only makes sense for us to finally team-up. I am extremely proud to announce his exciting new line of comic books and graphic novels here at Dark Horse. Kevin has a brilliant, creative mind, and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for all of us.”Dark Horse President and Founder Mike Richardson
The announcement comes on the same year as the 25th anniversary of Jay & Silent Bob’s Secret Stash.
“Following the recipe written by Mike Richardson eons ago when he turned his comic shop into a legendary comic book publisher, the Secret Stash is ready to take the next step in its evolution. I’m ecstatic for Secret Stash Press to become a part of the Dark Horse multimedia empire. I hope our books will bring new customers into comic shops and delight regular readers worldwide.”Kevin Smith
