Dark Horse turns to prose: ICv2.com reports that Dark Horse has officially announced the formation of two prose imprints, M Press and DH Press:

"M Press, the more literary of the new ventures, will include both fiction and non-fiction titles. Its first release, Shanghai Diary, is a remarkable story of the survival of a Jewish family trapped in the Far East during World War II."

It's also been reported that Bob Andelman's Will Eisner: A Spirited Life biography will be published under the imprint.

DH Press will concentrate on genre fiction and pop-culture material, including novelizations of manga titles, and original military science fiction. Publishers Group West will distribute the imprints to the book market.
