In partnership with DC Entertainment, Idw Publishing and Library of American Comics is pleased to announce the August release of Wonder Woman: The Complete Newspaper Comics, which collects the entire original Wonder Woman newspaper strip that ran from May 1, 1943 until December 1, 1944 for the first time ever!
Just a few years after Wonder Woman burst into comic books, the world’s most famous female superhero starred in her own daily newspaper strip written and drawn by the same creative team that produced the comic book: William Moulton Marston (writer) and Harry G. Peters(artist).
This beautiful 196-page hardcover book starts the story on Paradise Island where Amazonian women rule supreme and no men are allowed. Their way of life is about to change when Steve Trevor, a wounded American soldier, washes up on their shores. Soon, Princess Diana of the Amazons—rechristened Wonder Woman—is off to America, where the saga continues! »

Idw has announced that they will launch a Rot & Ruin comic book series this September, taking us back to the zombie-filled world of Jonathan Maberry’s Rot & Ruin novels:
“San Diego, CA (May 29, 2014) – Idw and multiple Bram Stoker award-winning author, Jonathan Maberry bring the untold stories from the zombie post-apocalyptic world of Rot & Ruin to comic books this September.
This all-new series is set in a world fifteen years after the dead have risen and vastly outnumber the survivors of the zombie-apocalypse. In the aftermath, humanity has found a way to live a marginal existence by forming fenced-in towns where everyone has a job to do in order to survive. As in the award-winning novels, the comic series will center on Benny Imura and his friends as they make their way in a world where the zombies aren’t always the greatest danger.

Our summers are now set. Yes, we have great movies and TV headed our way, but what to do in between? Search for the truth as Mulder or Scully with The X-Files Big Box Board Game! Idw today announced the game and its July release, hopefully meaning July 1 but perhaps meaning during Comic-Con, which begins July 23.
One of my favorite things about it? “The X-Files board game will focus heavily on material from the first three seasons of the television series, giving fans a chance to start from the beginning of the phenomenon.” Another favorite thing is the fact that one player gets to be The Smoking Man. Bring It.

This is great news on all sorts of levels. Today Idw has announced that it will be releasing a new miniseries based on Harlan Ellison‘s screenplay of Star Trek original series episode “City on the Edge of Forever,” with cover art by Juan Ortiz.
So let’s break this down a little. First, new Star Trek comic miniseries, excellent. That it’s based on the screenplay for the episode where Kirk, Spock, and Bones end up in the U.S. in the 1930′s, excellent. That it’s based on the original screenplay that few have ever seen, which won Hugo and Writer’s Guild of America awards and which was written by Harlan Ellison (The Twilight Zone, Tales From the Darkside, Babylon 5, The Outer Limits, etc., etc.) and it is being developed with his approval and input, even more excellent.
And finally, that it will feature covers by Juan Ortiz, »
