Vintage dioramas! Flashy cast pictures!

Details at local retailers and in the October Diamond Previews Catalog


Cobra: Ongoing #8San Diego, CA (September 27, 2011)—Proving that a picture really is worth a thousand words, IDW Publishing today announced “Photo Cover Month,” a month-long celebration featuring fun, out-of-the-box photo covers for many of IDW’s most popular series. Readers should look for the “Photo Cover Month” badge next to participating IDW comics in the October issue of Diamond Previews, in stores on Wednesday.

“I mean, who didn’t grow up building JOE or TRANSFORMERS dioramas,” asked IDW’s Hasbro editor, John Barber. “This December, IDW is helping our readers relive those glory days, plus much more!”

IDW’S “Photo Cover Month” spans the comic spectrum, from vintage action figure dioramas to awesome cast photos, from COBRA to TRUE BLOOD, and from DOCTOR WHO to TRANSFORMERS. Each participating comic will feature one regular photo cover, plus a drawn cover. The photo covers vary from souped-up cast images to classic toy action shots. The complete list of participating comics is below. While many covers are included in the Diamond Previews catalog, IDW will be releasing more images throughout October.
