Dungeons and Dragons isn’t just a game anymore, it’s much bigger and Fell’s Five are part of it. Fell’s Five have followed Khal back home to find out what’s wrong with his beloved. See what after the jump.
Raphael and Casey Jones are out administering their own brand of justice on the streets as the rest of the turtles question whether their lost brother is still alive or not. Meanwhile, a one-eyed cat-man named Hob wants to dine on turtle soup!
Or – “The Legend Of Cliff Secord…”
The late Dave Stevens was known for his art: beautiful women, vintage cars and weapons, stylized characters and classic wardrobes made his work a joy to look at. With The Rocketeer, Dave tapped into a vein of nostalgic adventure similar to what George Lucas hit a few years earlier (the comics came out in ’82, for those of y’all that only remember the movie.) Now that he has left us, Dave’s best known characters are returning from IDW Publishing, with all-star creative teams taking on Cliff, Betty, Peavey and the whole gang. Will The Rocketeer still fly high without his creator?
I know some people have been expecting this since I started writing here, and I’m not one to disappoint, but I didn’t want to start a precedent. Anyhow, now that my conceited notion of self worth is out of the way, start to find out how Fell’s Four originally formed after the jump.
The Ghostbusters aren’t afraid of no ghosts. But zombies are a whole different story altogether. When IDW’s Infestation hits the Ghostbusters, will Egon, Peter, Ray and Winston stand a chance? Find out, in Ghostbusters: Infestation #1!
The series based on the iconic role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons continues, with more orc-fighting, more shape-shifting assassins, and more dungeons built by insane dwarven murderers. Sound like a fun read? Find out after the jump!
Many of you know I’ve become rather cynical over the endless number of Back to Press press releases certain companies send out.Â That being said, I am really interested in spreading the word on IDW’s reprinting of Darwyn Cook’s The Hunter graphic novel adaptation.Â If you haven’t read this first volume, you’ll want to get your hands on the second printing when it arrives in September.
â€œThis is a truly amazing book and one that IDW is very proud of,â€ said Special Projects Editor, Scott Dunbier. â€œEven though we aggressively overprinted the initial run, the bookâ€™s popularity is exceeding even our high hopes and we are thrilled to be on our second printing already. We encourage stores to place their reorders quickly to meet the continued demand for this great book.â€
The Hunter is the first book in The Paker series, telling the story of a man betrayed by love and partners, going on a cross country quest for revenge.Â It’s an engaging story in graphic form, and one that comes highly recommended.
IDW Publishing has announced it is bringing J. Scott Campbell’s Danger Girl series to the company.Â The original series will be collected in an oversized deluxe hardcover in the spring of 2010.Â Following that, new Danger Girl stories will be produced, featuring Campbell’s work on the covers.
I’m surprised it took this long for the original series to be collected in trade, as the art alone warrants the super-sized treatment.
There’s more from the press release, after the jump
Looks like Bob Schreck has a new home, and a new job – Senior Editor at IDW Publishing.Â The former Senior Group Editor at Dark Horse entertainment, and founding member of Oni Press jump to IDW soon after his release from his previous job.
IDW is on fire! Who wouldn’t want to be a part of a company that is so on the move and so in tune to today’s comics’ readers and pop culture? They choose their projects carefully and haven’t lost their identity as a publisher, which is no easy task when trying to appeal to as broad an audience as possible. I feel like the sky’s the limit there creatively speaking and that I will be able to achieve some very interesting and exciting results.
In an interview with Newsarama, Schreck was mum on his plans with the company, and declined to name names when it came to talent he was hoping to bring with him.
