Dark Horse Comics are an US-based English-language comics and art books publisher. They also translate and publish Japanese manga and artbooks. Many of their original publications are comic book adaptations of popular films and series, including Aliens, Star Wars, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. Their manga series include Trigun, Oreimo, and various Clamp works.

Their first foray into Final Fantasy related publishing was with Yoshitaka Amano artbooks. Dark Horse started publishing the Amano-illlustrated Vampire Hunter D novels in 2005, and later published a couple of unrelated Japanese Amano artbooks in 2006. Dark Horse translated the French Amano artbook Worlds of Amano in 2007 which included a sample of several Final Fantasy artworks, before later publishing the original Final Fantasy-focused Japanese artbooks Dawn: The Worlds of Final Fantasy in 2009 (originally published in Japanese in 1991) and The Sky: The Art of Final Fantasy in 2012 (originally published in Japanese in 2001).

Dark Horse Comics are distributed by Penguin Random House, who are the parent company of Prima Games.
