Dark Horse Comics & Portland Gear

A Local Legend

Hey Portland, we’ve got some exciting news! If you haven’t already heard, we at Portland Gear, are collaborating with none other than the legendary Dark Horse Comics! Yep, you heard right. We’re teaming up with one of the biggest independent comic companies in the US. And the best part? They’re as local as we are.

The Dark Horse Origin Story

Let’s take a step back and appreciate who we’re working with here. Dark Horse Comics kicked off in 1986, thanks to Mike Richardson. Fast forward to today, and they’re a household name not just here, but across the nation. They broke the mold, being one of the first to back creator-owned material. That’s the kind of pioneering spirit we admire!

From Star Wars to Buffy: A Stellar Lineup

Their portfolio? Nothing short of stellar. We’re talking Star Wars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Mass Effect, Aliens, Predator, Conan, Serenity, Dollhouse – the list goes on! And did you know, their first manga series was Godzilla: King of the Monsters back in ’87? Yeah, they’ve been cool for a long time.

A Match Made in Portland

So, what happens when a local apparel brand with a passion for the city teams up with a comic book giant? Magic, that’s what! It’s not every day you get to collaborate with a company that’s been shaping pop culture for decades. We’re buzzing with excitement to see what this partnership will bring and how it will put our beloved Portland on the map in a whole new way.

Uniting Creativity and Community

We believe in pushing boundaries and celebrating our community through art and storytelling. Dark Horse Comics shares that vision. Together, we’re exploring uncharted territories, blending apparel and comics in a way that’s never been done before. And we’re doing it all right here in Portland!

Let’s Make it Legendary

We’re beyond thrilled about this collaboration and we hope you are too. If you’re as excited as we are, spread the love! Share the news, tell your friends, and let’s make this partnership a legendary chapter in Portland’s story. Stay tuned for more updates and get ready to experience something truly extraordinary. See you around, Portland!
