SDCC’13: Darby Pop Publishing announces partnership with IDW Publishing
Darby Pop Publishing is pleased to announce it has entered into a publishing and distribution partnership with premier comic book publisher IDW. The announcement was made during Comic-Con International: San Diego.
Darby Pop Publishing was founded in 2012 by writer/ showrunner and genre geek Jeff Kline (“Transformers: Prime”). Editor-in-Chief is former Marvel and Top Cow Editor David Wohl (“Witchblade”). The company’s impressive stable of talent includes both veterans of the comic book world, as well as creatives from other media (including novels, television, and feature film).
Darby Pop Publishing has three titles currently in production: Indestructible, City, and The Seventh Sword. The first of these will become available in December ‘13; the others will roll-out in subsequent months, to be quickly followed by a second and third wave of original comic books.
