Dark Horse Publishing is an American publishing company, and one of the largest independent American comic book publishers, behind Marvel Comics and DC Comics.

Dark Horse was the main publisher of Godzilla comics throughout the late 1980s and the 1990s, including the 17-issue Godzilla, King of the Monsters series. Dark Horse also published a short-lived miniseries of Gamera comics titled Gamera: The Guardian of the Universe. Dark Horse has also published books besides comics, such as the 2005 novel Kong: King of Skull Island. It has also produced merchandise based on its comics, such as figures of King Kong.

Some of Dark Horse's kaiju comics, namely Gamera: The Guardian of the Universe and Godzilla, King of the Monsters, have been translated into Japanese and published in Japan by PHASE6, over two decades following their original publication.
