As San Diego Comic-Con 2017 wraps up, we’re left with a boat load of announcements from IDW! So let’s get into it!
An Eisner award was given to three of IDW’s writers for their work on March: Book Three: John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell. Another of IDW’s creators was inducted into the Eisner Hall of Fame: Walter Simonson! He is beloved amongst long time comic fans for his work on many titles, including (but definitely not limited to) Thor and X-Factor.
IDW is continuing its streak of publishing comics based on existing properties. Sonic the Hedgehog has jumped ship from Archie Comics to join IDW. A Goosebumps comic is coming in November. For those conspiracy theorists out there, IDW is publishing a miniseries, X-Files: JFK Disclosure.
As mentioned in earlier news, IDW is bringing back a sequel to TMNT/Ghostbusters! But IDW is also honoring the ladies of the 2016 Ghostbusters film with Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, coming out in October!
And IDW’s Hasbro universe gets bigger! Joining G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K., ROM, and Transformers is a new comic series based on Visionaries! You remember, those guys who had the holograms in their chest and staffs? They’re coming to the shared universe! But Transformers isn’t done there! The new major Hasbro event coming this fall, First Strike, is going to feature the biggest Transformer of them all: Unicron!
With so much coming out, there’s definitely reason to be excited, especially if you’re a fan of the 80’s and 90’s!
