Thirteen Years and Stronger Than Ever!

Thirteen Years and Stronger Than Ever!

IDW Publishing rings in its teen years with a string of successes

San Diego, CA (May 16, 2012)
– Buoyed by extraordinary fan response, explosive material, and a dedicated retail market, IDW is spending a lot of year thirteen making repeated trips to the printer!

Going back to press on multiple books, including Popeye #1, Road Rage #1 and #2, TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise #1, TRANSFORMERS: More Than Meets the Eye #1, and multiple printings of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1-5, to name a few, has given IDW a lot of work to do and a lot to think about. That’s to say nothing of the fact that this week brought sell-outs of Frankenstein Alive, Alive! #1 and TRIO #1!

“In all my years in the Direct Market, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen things blow up quite like this,” said Publisher and CEO Ted Adams. “We’ve been overprinting aggressively, and still not meeting demand. The initial orders we’re seeing are huge, and the increases we’re seeing at Final Order Cut-off are substantial.”

[Road Rage #1 2nd Printing]It should also be clear to fans and retailers alike that this wave of comics awesomeness has far from crested. Extremely strong sales of Mars Attacks, KISS, Godzilla, and the hotly-anticipated Star Trek: The Next Generation and Doctor Who crossover, among others, are just a handful of indicators screaming that IDW does not plan to stop putting out some of the industry’s most popular and prosperous titles.

With more launches on the way later this year, from The Crow to Judge Dredd, clearly the publisher shows no signs of slowing down.
