In 2005, Beckett Publications was sold to Apprise Media. Beckett Comics retained their independence, but, without the support of their parent company, they found themselves without resources to publish and distribute their titles. They made a deal with Image Comics to compensate for that problem. Under the terms, Beckett Comics would retain their editorial and creative independence. However, the prices of their titles would be more in line with the rest of the United States' comic book industry. The company intends to focus on publishing original graphic novels instead of monthly issues.
Jeff Amano, the writer of many Beckett Comics titles and the cover artist for all but RUULE: Ganglords of Chinatown, resigned from his position as president of Beckett Entertainment Partners in 2008. Gabriel Benson, the author of Fade from Grace and The Ballad of Sleeping Beauty, continues to work at Beckett Entertainment pursuing projects in the comic book, film, and television industries.
