Dark Horse Comics and Vanguard Publishing have reached an agreement that will resolve the confusion over which company will publish Frank Frazetta’s White Indian comics. The companies had reached separate agreements with different members of the Frazetta family to publish the material.
Vanguard signed a deal with Frazetta Properties, LLC to publish a series of Frank Frazetta Classics volumes and planned to publish The Complete White Indian Collection as Volume 2 in its Frazetta Classics line (see “Vanguard to Release Frazetta’s White Indian“).
Dark Horse had also announced a collection of The Classic Comics Archives Vol. 1: White Indian, but Dark Horse has decided to take the book off the schedule. Vanguard will release the Complete Frazetta White Indian Collection, while Dark Horse will publish a second volume collecting all the post-Frazetta material featuring Dan Brand aka the White Indian.
Initial direct market orders on the previously announced Dark Horse Frazetta White Indian Collection will be filled with the Vanguard volume following notices to retailers from Diamond Comic Distributors.
