The French Crowd-Funded Success Comes To U.S. Audiences April 2015

The Infinite Loop Comes To U.S. Audiences April 2015In anticipation of Paris Comics Expo this weekend, IDW Publishing is pleased to announce they will be bringing to print The Infinite Loop, the wildly successful Kickstarter-run project, as a 6-issue miniseries starting in April 2015.

The Infinite Loop is a science-fiction series that asks the age-old question, “What would you risk for a chance at true love?” Meet Teddy, a young woman who lives in a faraway future where time traveling is a common practice and her job is to maintain the status quo by correcting time paradoxes. But when she meets Ano, “a time paradox” and the girl of her dreams, Teddy must decide between fixing the time stream or the love of her life, both of which have unique consequences.

The Infinite Loop began earlier this year as a wildly successful crowdfunded project created by the team of writer Pierrick Colinet and artist Elsa Charretier and described by Comic Book Resources’ Robot 6 as “channeling early-period Steve Rude with the page composition of George Pérez…” For the comic-book series, Elsa will be providing all-new covers. Issue 1 also features a variant cover by Stéphanie Hans.

“When Elsa showed off a sample copy of issue 1 at this October’s NYCC, everyone at IDW who saw it was desperate to bring it here. The talent and creativity abound on every page. This book is a very welcome title to our roster,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief.

“I’ve always loved American comic books, and I’ve always written that way, so having one of my book published monthly is really meaningful to me,” said co-creator and series writer, Colinet. “Especially for this story, which is so personal and important to us. And I’m glad we got to join the fantastic IDW team, who showed a true excitement towards The Infinite Loop from the beginning.”The Infinite Loop Comes To U.S. Audiences April 2015

“Having The Infinite Loop released in the US is so incredible for us,” said co-creator and series artist, Charretier. “When we started working on this story, we were on our own, just the two of us, trying to make this book happen. Crowdfunding and the huge support we received gave us the opportunity to complete it, and now IDW is allowing us to present it to a whole new audience!”

Adventure, Science-Fiction, Love, and Time Travel. What else could you would want? Don’t miss this soon-to-be international hit!

Following in the tire tracks of this summer’s Monster Motors, about which Comic Book Therapy said “Monster Motors is a one-shot, but hopefully IDW decides to extend the warranty on this shiny new car,” IDW is happy to announce just that: February sees the launch of the two-part follow-up to the acclaimed debut by Brian Lynch, Nick Roche and Leonard O’Grady: Monster Motors: The Curse of Minivan Helsing.

Genius mechanic Vic Frankenstein and his assistant iGOR (interactive Garage Operations Robot) have moved to the quaint town of Transylvania, Kentucky. But this quaint town has a bit of a problem; it’s becoming overrun by Monster Motors! Vampire cars suck gas from their victims and lunar-powered werewolf vehicles grow fangs and claws when the moon is full! And that’s just for starters.

Someone has to keep them all in check. Enter MINIVAN HELSING: four-wheeled monster-hunter. It is his job to hunt down the Monster Motors and bring them to justice. His new target? Vic and his Frankenride, a monstrous truck made from the parts of fallen cars and trucks.

“MONSTER MOTORS is a world I love coming back to,” said Lynch. “Combining everyone’s favorite monsters (and, with this story, monster hunters) with the coolest vehicles originally made me say ‘wow, if I were a kid I’d love to see this’. But as the world gets fleshed out and we start figuring out each Monster Motors’ personality, I realized this was a story anyone can enjoy, no matter their age. It’s got tons of action, it’s funny, it’s scary, and thanks to Nick and Len, it’s the best looking book you’ll read all month.”

Don’t miss the next chapter in the story Horror Talk called “the kind of fun, creative story that comics were made for. It’s silly and easy for kids to pick up while also being smart enough for adults. This needs to be an ongoing title. 10 out 10.”

A Groundbreaking Collection Coming This February

IDW and Yoe Books are proud to announce The Untold History of Black Comic Books, brought to you by Professor William H. Foster III, a leading authority on the history of Black cartoonists and comics, and fellow comic book historian Craig Yoe.

This groundbreaking collection in both scope and detail, traces the changing image of African-Americans in comic books from the 1940s right up to the present day. Perfect for fans and comic scholars alike, it includes nearly 200 pages of rarely seen comic book stories never reprinted before. There has never been a book with this incredible and fascinating cultural scope and is truly not to be missed.

“This book is important to me on several levels,” said Professor Foster. “It is not just the culmination of years of research. It is the latest chapter in my efforts to illuminate the forgotten corners of comic book history. Despite the fact that I have been a fan, collector, and historian for comics for many years, I still meet people in and out of the comic industry who say they have never seen, or heard of Black comic books. Incidents like that used to depress me. Nowadays I just smile and say, ‘Well, let me tell you a story…’”

The Untold History of Black Comic Books is a 9” x 12” full-color hardcover slated for release February 2015 ($39.99 – DEC140581 – ISBN: 978-1-63140-290-6).

D4VE’s Mid-Life. Crisis. Is Coming To Print At IDW Publishing http://www.idwpublishing.com/d4ves-mid-life-crisis-is-coming-to-print-at-idw-publishing/ http://www.idwpublishing.com/d4ves-mid-life-crisis-is-coming-to-print-at-idw-publishing/#comments Wed, 12 Nov 2014 16:57:40 +0000 http://www.idwpublishing.com/?p=72831 Experience The Comedy Of One Robot’s Existential Crisis In Print

The partnership between IDW Publishing and Monkeybrain has brought some of the most critically acclaimed digital comic-book series to an entirely new readership, and both are pleased to welcome another to the printed page: D4VE.

]]>
Experience The Comedy Of One Robot’s Existential Crisis In Print

5a4e0c9e-dc05-47b4-9232-d5892ee6e49d

A war for Earth was fought and the robots have won but the results are far less “brave new world” and more of the “same old, same old.” Starting February 2015, fans of print comics will get the opportunity to meet D4VE, a great robot war hero who now is trapped behind a desk at a soul-sucking day job.

D4VE is the brainchild of series writer Ryan Ferrier and artist Valentin Ramon. In the five-issue series, D4VE battles traffic, mortgage payments, and the mundane when all he wants to do is battle monsters like in his glory days. But those days are gone…right? Little does D4VE know that something big is going to help snap him out of this mid-life: crisis.

“D4VE is a story so close to our hearts, and to be able to bring our special brand of bizarre to the monthly print market is, frankly, insanely freaking cool,” said series writer, Ferrier. “Monkeybrain blessed us with the opportunity to tell this story digital-first, and IDW is the perfect home—one built on unique and daring storytelling—for our madness to reach even more readers. We’d have to invent a new word to express our excitement, so we did: we are totally superextribbulated for D4VE to come out through IDW.”61d294c3-5bb4-4883-a571-7e3d943dd701

“Having D4VE find a new audience in print through IDW is a huge honor,” said series artist, Ramon. “They are a publisher that inspires so much of what we have aimed to do with our story—pushing boundaries and expectations, featuring characters you can connect with. We hope our readers love D4VE as much as we loved creating it.”

Come early 2015, you can check out the five-issue miniseries that Bloody Disgusting calls “a master class in robotic mid-life crisis… ripe with laughs” and featuring a first-issue cover by Fiona Staples (Saga).

The Mutanimals Are Back In Action! - New TMNT Miniseries Spotlights The Fan-Favorite Team

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have faced down everything from demons to aliens, but starting in February 2015, a new team of mutated animals will take center stage as they face off against an even greater threat! Appearing in the monthly Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, the Mutanimals have been questionable allies, and now all of their secrets will be revealed in the 4-issue miniseries TMNT: Mutanimals!

When someone close to the Mutanimals goes missing, the team consisting of Old Hob, Slash, Mondo Gecko, Herman the Hermit Crab, and Pigeon Pete will be put to the ultimate test. Teamwork doesn’t exactly come easy to these outsiders, but they’ll have to find a way to work together to take on a mysterious new entity known as The Null Group…

With a number of TMNT Micro-Series one-shots, and both The Utrom Empire and Turtles In Time miniseries already under his belt, Paul Allor will again handle the scripting on this series. Returning to the world of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be artist Andy Kuhn, who created the new IDW design for Mutanimals leader Slash and will handle covers and interiors, with Ben Bates providing a variant cover to the first issue.

“IDW and all the creators involved have done an amazing job introducing the Mutanimals into this universe,” said Allor. “It’s very exciting to see them get their own mini-series, and an absolute honor to be the guy writing it, especially since it means working again with artist Andy Kuhn. Every TMNT tie-in and mini has offered the readers something new and awesome, and we hope to continue that streak on TMNT: Mutanimals.”

“I’m super-stoked to be a part of the team that’s bringing The Mutanimals back,” said Kuhn. “This year my Christmas is four months long!”

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series at IDW has garnered consistent acclaim for its exciting new takes on many aspects of the legendary TMNT universe. The Mutanimals starred in their own comic book series in the early ‘90s, and now they’re returning to action in this new adventure that ties in directly with the ongoing series!

Don’t miss out on the series that’s sure to have Turtles’ fans old and new clamoring for more! Pre-order with Diamond Code DEC140484.

Legendary creator Jack Kirby’s Fourth World, his revered multi-generational space opera, debuted in the award-winning Artist’s Edition format earlier this year with Jack Kirby New Gods: Artist’s Edition.

The Second Artist’s Edition Featuring The King Of Comics Arrives!

The Spotlight Shines On Jack Kirby’s Mister MiracleLegendary creator Jack Kirby’s Fourth World, his revered multi-generational space opera, debuted in the award-winning Artist’s Edition format earlier this year with Jack Kirby New Gods: Artist’s Edition. IDW Publishing is now proud to announce a second title in this monumental series, Jack Kirby: Mister Miracle Artist’s Edition! Meticulously scanned from the original art, this Artist’s Edition presents the highest quality look inside an astonishing work by a comic legend. The Fourth World introduced a whole new pantheon into the DC Comics universe, igniting a fervor that continues to define storytelling in comics.

Inspired by the antics of fellow creator Jim Steranko, who spent some of his early years working as an escape artist and illusionist, Kirby created Mister Miracle in 1971 when he debuted in his own title, one of the four core books of the Fourth World epic. And while the original run lasted a mere 18 issues, the character has reappeared numerous times over the years, and the magic of those first Kirby stories continues to reverberate among creators and fans to this day.

“Jack may never have been creatively happier than when he was writing and drawing MISTER MIRACLE,” said Mark Evanier, Eisner award-winning author of Kirby: King of Comics. “There were so many autobiographical aspects to it, starting with his own feelings and fantasies of ‘escaping’ from some of the shackles of the comic book industry, as well as the way the Scott Free/Big Barda relationship mirrored aspects of his own long and loving relationship with his life partner, Roz. You can feel Jack bursting free, like Mister Miracle escaping a trap, on every page.”

IDW’s Special Projects Director Scott Dunbier has assembled a staggering seven complete issues of the series by Kirby, including issues #2, #3, and #5-9! With 192 pages measuring 12” x 17”, this is truly a book to behold! “The wealth of huge ideas and stunning visuals that poured from Jack Kirby’s mind is just staggering,” said Dunbier, “You want to find out why he’s called King Kirby? Get this book!”

Kirby’s unrivaled vision can’t be missed in this unrivaled Artist’s Edition!

Their mission statement: “To challenge 75 years’ worth of accepted ‘rules’ about what comics are and aren’t.” The commitment to this challenge continues as Thrillbent and IDW Publishing partner to bring these unique digital comics to print starting spring 2015.]]> 11b7b8c1-7e29-4be2-81f7-836daff0cb1fThe Next Phase Is Here

In 2012, award-winning comics writer Mark Waid and writer/producer John Rogers launched Thrillbent, a digital comics webportal and an experiment in new-media comic-book publishing. Their mission statement: “To challenge 75 years’ worth of accepted ‘rules’ about what comics are and aren’t.” The commitment to this challenge continues as Thrillbent and IDW Publishing partner to bring these unique digital comics to print starting spring 2015.

“I love print comics,” said Waid, whose own personal collection is legendary. “While we have always proudly been digital-first, print was always in Thrillbent’s business plan–but for a start-up company like ours, it was cost-prohibitive. Once we proved our commitment to ongoing content–Thrillbent currently hosts literally hundreds of new comics, with more added every week–we were courted by several print publishers looking to partner. IDW was the clear choice–its track record for innovation is unbeatable and undeniable.”

Over the past two years, Thrillbent has worked with more than 60 creators to publish nearly 20 ongoing digital-only series (and counting) that span all genres, from horror to humor to high adventure. The first series slated for print release under this partnership will be Empire Volume Two and Insufferable, both written by Waid.

Empire Volume Two is a sequel to the Eisner-nominated series co-created by Waid and artist Barry Kitson from 2000, which Waid describes as “the single most-asked about project in my career–‘When’s Empire coming back?’ is the one question I know I’ll hear at every convention or store signing”. Waid and Kitson have joined forces once again in 2014 to deliver new installments that continue the saga of Golgoth, a remorseless villain whose plans for world domination have won him the planet Earth… and made him the target of every inhabitant. As a kickoff to the larger Thrillbent partnership, IDW will produce an all-new edition of the long-sold-out Empire Volume One and launch it just ahead of Empire v2. Both books will debut next spring.

Also by Waid, with co-creator Peter Krause, Insufferable is a series that explores what happens when a crime fighter’s sidekick grows up to be less a hero constantly at war with his mentor–and what it would take to draw the two back together again for one last adventure. Krause, also Waid’s partner in crime on the 2007 series Irredemable, provides the artwork on this unique look at the superhero genre.

“In addition to being one of the best comic-book writers in modern times, Mark Waid has also proven himself with Thrillbent to be one of the smarter forward-thinkers in comics,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. “We’re very happy to be partnered with Mark, John Rogers and all the other great Thrillbent creators to help bring their work to comic fans in this way.”
