Posted by Betsy Gomez on April 17, 2018 @ 5:47 pm CT
Starburns, which is behind popular animated series Rick and Morty and Harmonquest and the Oscar-nominated animated feature Anomalsia, is launching a new publishing division called SBI Press.
Starburns was founded by Harmon, Stamatoplous, Joe Russo II, James Fino, and Duke Johnson in 2010 to produce the holiday special for cult comedy series Community. Rick and Morty is arguably the company’s biggest creation, spawning a large and devoted fanbase and an immense amount of licensed merchandise (see "'Rick & Morty,' 'Supergirl,' 'Outlander'," "Three New 'Rick and Morty' Games in 2018," and "Pickle Rick, The Vindicators, Sleepy Gary Get Own Comics"). A fourth season of the show is reportedly in contract negotiations (see "'Westworld' Season 2 Trailer, Animated Deadpool Show Nixed").
