Tweet I guess I should have expected that, the terrifying part, given not only the title, but the author concerned. I somehow missed reading Joe Hill’s short story THE CAPE when it was winning all kinds of awards, so first encountered it here in comics form in IDW’s recent “Treasury Edition” of several short comics [...]
Tweet Coinciding with all of the big C2E2 announcements from just about every comics publisher, IDW released some information about more than one upcoming series bringing the characters created by Jay Ward to comics. The two big titles will include MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN, leading up to a March 2014 film release from DreamWorks Animation [...]
I remember the days when someone with an IMDB page expressing interest in comic books was seen as some kind of validation of comics in the larger cultural fabric. Now it’s just…look, I’m not going to accept the Black Eyed Peas into the tribe, sorry. I gotta feeling about WIZARD & ROBOTS, a one shot to be written BEP’s by will.i.am and Brian David Johnson, futurist for chipmaker Intel, with art by Adam Archer. We’re told that “WIZARDS & ROBOTS takes readers on a vivid, evocative journey through thrilling new worlds. Over WIZARDS & ROBOTS’ 48 pages, readers will travel untold distances to experience the tale of an unthinkably massive battle.”
TweetKickstarter has turned in to my new ESPN. You could have done a March Madness bracket of Kickstarter projects last month, but everyone wins. Elaine Lee and Michael Kaluta’s project involves reprinting Harry Palmer’s story from Starstruck—originally published with Marvel/Epic, but with an additional 88 new pages. 24 hours after launch they were sitting at 50% of [...]
TweetLater this year IDW will be publishing Half Past Danger, a new series written, drawn, and created by Stephen Mooney. After working as artist on several IDW titles including Star Trek and Angel for the last few years, Mooney decided it was time to set up a creator-owned project, which he’d have full control over.

In a move that is the opposite of a shock, some of the titles from the digital-first Monkeybrain imprint are coming to print at IDW, starting in June. The line will kick off with founder Chris Roberson’s EDISON REX and continuing with AMELIA COLE AND THE UNKNOWN WORLD, RED LIGHT PROPERTIES and more.
The people at IDW are no slackards. After taking a look at the sales of their My Little Pony comics — their best selling comics EVER — and the current 90s cartoon nostalgia trend, they’ve pacted with Cartoon Network to bring out a bunch of old favorites—and current hits —in comics form, in a deal announced at last week’s ComicsPRO meeting in Atlanta. Titles include The Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack, Johnny Bravo and Generator Rex.
TweetIDW’s first volume of the collected DOCTOR WHO OMNIBUS is a compact but substantial little tome gathering two long story arcs (“Agent Provacateur” and “The Forgotten”) and six one-shots that appeared in single issue form featuring, for the most part, the adventures of the 10th Doctor. The production values on the collection are reasonably high, [...]
TweetIf you somehow didn’t know it already, then this is breaking news for you: this year marks the 50th anniversary of the longest running science fiction TV show in the world: Doctor Who.

Tweet Apocalypse now? Boxing announcer/comics publisher Joe Antonacci will be appearing this Friday on Fox & Friends to talk about the Joe Palooka comic which is launching this week from IDW.

TweetDue to last week’s port strike that closed the L.A.-Long Beach Port, a bunch of IDW titles that were to come out this next week will be delayed until January 2 or, in some cases, January 9, 2013.
