BOOM! Buys Archaia

BOOM! Studios Acquires Archaia; Comics Merger Creates Indie IP Mega-Library

IP is a precious commodity in Hollywood, and now comic book company BOOM! Studios is adding more original properties to its catalog. The award-winning comics and graphic novel publisher behind Universal‘s 2 Guns has acquired Eisner and Harvey Award-winning indie label Archaia Entertainment, which will live on as a BOOM! imprint.
Seems like a good deal for both.  Archaia gets some exposure with the more mainstream BOOM! and BOOM! gets a quality back catalog and some nice properties.  Interseting shakeup in any case.
