IDW Publishing Recaps Comic-Con 2017
New Series Announcements, Eisners, and more!


San Diego, CA (July 25, 2017) – San Diego-based publisher, IDW, was well represented at this year’s Comic-Con International and made some noise, thanks to IDW’s high profile booth signings, in-demand exclusives, and major announcements! Not to mention walking away from the annual Eisner ceremony with awards for Best Anthology – Love is Love, and Best Reality-Based Work – March: Book Three.

As they celebrated the trilogy's conclusion, Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell not only received Eisner Awards for March: Book Three, but also Inkpot Awards for their contributions to the field of comics, before leading hundreds of students, teachers, and fans in an inspiring march through Comic-Con.

Love is Love project organizer, Marc Andreyko, was awarded the Bob Clampett Humanitarian Award for his efforts to aid the victims of the tragic Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. The benefit anthology raised over $167K for those affected.

Legendary comics creator Walter Simonson, whose Ragnarök is published under IDW, was honored during the ceremony as well, being inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in recognition of his long and outstanding career.

With so many announcements hitting during the biggest trade show of the year, we’ve compiled a handy guide to what exciting news IDW/Top Shelf made at the event.

Sonic the Hedgehog — Everyone’s favorite blue blur is returning to comics in 2018, now under IDW’s editorial guidance as SEGA announced a new publishing partnership.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen — Award-winning creators Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill will conclude their careers in comics with a final storyline, "The Tempest," beginning in June.

Goosebumps — This October, encounter monsters old and new in IDW’s comic series from the terrifying world of R.L. Stine’s bestselling series.

Black Crown’s Assassinistas — This 6-issue miniseries from writer Tini Howard (Hack/Slash) and newly minted Will Eisner Hall of Famer Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets) packs a punch. Ex-hitwoman Octavia comes out of retirement, dragging her college-aged son and his boyfriend along on her mission to kick some serious ass this December.

Black Crown’s Punks Not Dead — Courtesy of writer David Barnett and artist Martin Simmonds, cross the pond this January for this UK-based tale of Fergie, a boy in search of his father, and his companion, the ghost of The Sex Pistol’s Sid Vicious (obviously).

TMNT/Ghostbusters 2 — The Heroes in a Half Shell and the original ‘busters will reunite for a 5-week crossover event series this November from Erik Burnham, Tom Waltz, and Dan Schoening.

Jem and the Holograms: Dimensions — The new anthology comic set in Jem’s world will premiere this November, with an all-star lineup of rotating creative teams including Jem mainstay Sophie Campbell, plus Kate Leth and Tana Ford joining the jam session.

The X-Files: JFK Disclosure — This two-part special, written by Denton J. Tipton with art by Menton3, will reveal the truth surrounding one of the greatest conspiracies in American history.

Gears of War — The popular video game franchise will return to comics in January 2018, with writer Kurtis Wiebe (Rat Queens) scripting new stories. In addition, IDW will be reprinting the previous Gears of War comics into collections.

Glénat — IDW Publishing and French publisher Glénat are teaming up on a new joint initiative to publish original graphic novels in the U.S. and France, publishing genre graphic novels that will fit into both markets. It kicks off with a new fantasy series, The Highest House, by Mike Carey and Peter Gross, creators of The Unwritten.

30 Days of Night — Fresh art from the upcoming reimagining of the vampire tale set in Alaska was unveiled. From writer/co-creator Steve Niles and artist Piotr Kowalski (Sex), a new take on the modern classic arrives this December.

Star Trek: Discovery — The first details about the comic book tie-in to the upcoming Star Trek TV series were teased, including a Klingon-centric storyline. It will be written by Mike Johnson and Star Trek: Discovery TV writer Kirsten Beyer with art by Tony Shasteen with more details to come about the October launching title.

Visionaries — Hasbro’s Visionaries return to comics was teased from the creative team of writer Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim) and artist Fico Ossio (Revolution).

Unicron is coming! — First Strike, the next major Hasbro comic book event from IDW, will see Unicron enter the picture, which can only mean one thing – destruction!

Transformers News: Director Michael Bay Creates Special Virtual Reality Experience For Fans With ILMxLAB Team

"TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT" DIRECTOR MICHAEL BAY CREATES SPECIAL VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE FOR FANS WITH ILMxLAB TEAM

Renowned director makes first foray into virtual reality platform, offering battling robot game free to fans through IMAX partnership at select AMC Theatres® locations in NYC and Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, CA (June 29, 2017) – Fans of the Transformers movie franchise will finally know what it’s like to battle a Decepticon up close and personal, as film director Michael Bay takes VR to the next level with "Transformers: The Last Knight" VR Experience, Friday, June 30 for a limited time, free of charge, only in the IMAX VR centres at AMC Kips Bay 15 in New York City and across from The Grove in Los Angeles and in select AMC Theatres lobbies.

"I wanted to do something special for fans, to let them feel what it’s like to be in the middle of intense Transformers action," commented Mr. Bay. "ILMxLAB was a great partner in delivering this experience, and pushing the envelope of what VR can do."

The five-minute virtual reality game was produced by Mr. Bay in collaboration with the team from San Francisco-based ILMxLAB, in cooperation with Paramount Pictures, and provides the HTC Headset single-player experience of actually joining the hero Autobots and facing off against the Decepticons in a fast-paced shooter game. The result is a VR showdown putting fans right into the intense action of the Transformers movie franchise.

"We are thrilled to deliver ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ VR Experience to AMC guests in New York and Southern California," said Elizabeth Frank, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Programming & Chief Content Officer, AMC Theatres. "The VR experience produced by Michael Bay is a wonderful way for our guests to immerse themselves in the Transformers world, and it is a perfect complement to our IMAX VR at AMC Kips Bay 15 VR Centre."

"Transformers: The Last Knight" VR Experience will be available beginning Friday, June 30, free of charge, ONLY at the IMAX VR Centre across from The Grove in Los Angeles and at the IMAX VR Centre at AMC Kips Bay 15 in New York City, as well as AMC Theatres locations in New York City at the AMC 34th Street and AMC Lincoln Square 13 and at the AMC Orange 30 in Southern California. This is a limited run, only available in these theaters and these two existing IMAX VR centres.

"We’ve been longtime partners with Paramount and Michael Bay on the Transformers franchise, and look forward to delivering this exciting new experience in IMAX VR," said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp.

The "Transformers: The Last Knight" VR Experience is a single-player, fast-paced VR shooter game that teams you with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Hound to recover a powerful weapon from the Decepticons. The player must work to protect and securely transport the weapon in order to prevent the destruction of a nearby metropolis. The experience opens with you in immediate peril, pressured by Decepticons attempting to steal back the weapon. Battling and racing through the countryside and then the outskirts of town, you are ultimately pinned down for a final climactic showdown.
