Title: Dark Horse and Netflix do a deal.

Not sure why though.  Most of Dark Horse output is licensed, creator owned, or imported.  Dark Horse doesn't own too terribly much of what it publishes.   ???

A couple of old Indy series that I think would be great on Netflix on Mike Baron's Badger and Steven Grant's Whisper.

Of the two, I preferred Whisper -- the story of a a young woman whose stepfather was involved in a Japanese crime family. Initially she has limited martial arts abilities, but pretends to be a ninja. Over time, she gradually becomes a formidable fighter.

Pretty sure the only Dark Horse series I read were Barb Wire and Ghost. I kinda doubt anyone would touch Barb Wire after Pamela Anderson's take on the character, but Ghost seems a distinct possibility.

After Atomic Blonde, Iíd love to see Charlize Theron in a live action Barb Wire show.

As for the deal itself, I suppose Dark Horse could be the de facto representation for creators who donít have an actual Hollywood agent.
