Comics from IDW and Top Shelf make up the new Humble Comics Bundle

idw_top_shelf_humble_bundleIDW Publishing and Top Shelf are joining forces for the ultimate comic book team-up! IDW and Top Shelf go together like a locke and key (which makes sense if you read on!). The publishers are part of the latest Humble Comics Bundle which not only allows you to pay what you want for awesome digital comics, but also support a worthwhile charity, Traveling Stories.

Name your price for Richard Stark’s Parker: The Hunter, March: Book One, Nemo: Heart of Ice, Nemo: The Roses of Berlin, and Locke & Key Vol. 1-3. If you pay more than the average price, you’ll also get The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Vol. 3, We Can Fix It!, God Is Disappointed in You, Alone Forever, and Locke & Key Vol. 4 & 5. If you pay at least $5 above the average price, you’ll receive all of the above plus Nemo: River of Ghosts, March: Book Two, Richard Stark’s Parker: Slayground, and Locke & Key Vol. 6: Alpha & Omega.

The contents of this bundle would cost you up to $158 if purchased separately, but at Humble Bundle, you pay what you want. You choose where the money goes — between the publisher and a charitable cause (Traveling Stories) via the PayPal Giving Fund.

Top Shelf to Adapt Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS GN 1Legendary journalist Hunter S. Thompson’s genius was rooted in his ability to blend reality with fiction, serious cultural analysis with madcap escapades, astonishing words with unforgettable images.

In that spirit, and in proud partnership with the Thompson estate, Top Shelf Productions has announced Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, a delightfully bonkers graphic novel by Eisner-nominated artist Troy Little adapting Thompson’s book of the same name.

The much-beloved Fear and Loathing, subtitled “A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream,” follows Thompson analogue Raoul Duke on the mother of all Vegas benders, as he and his attorney Dr. Gonzo cover a motorcycle race, crash a drug-enforcement convention, and rack up obscenely large room-service bills, all while dosed to the gills on a truly spectacular assortment of mind-altering substances.

FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS GN 2Troy Little’s faithful adaptation, scheduled for October 2015, will capture the full gonzo experience in a glorious full color graphic novel. Little is previously known for the Xeric-award-winning graphic novel Chiaroscuro and for his Eisner-nominated series Angora Napkin, both from IDW Publishing. Now, his irrepressibly energetic cartooning brings a new level of manic energy to Thompson’s rocket-fueled narrative.

“Buy the ticket, take the ride.” Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas comes to a store near you this fall!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Fight Club 2 #1 CoverWednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Brett

Top Pick: Fight Club 2 #1 (Dark Horse)Fight Club is both a fantastic book and movie. When I heard a sequel was being made as a comic, I was initially apprehensive, even with it being written by Chuck Palahniuk. But, after the first issue, I’m beyond all in. The first issue is absolutely amazing, both in story and art.

Captain Canuck 2015 #1 (Chapter House Publishing) – I grew up mostly in Buffalo, right along the Canadian border. And due to that, I’ve known about Captain Canuck for a while. A new updated version? Hells yes!

Fubar: Mother Russia #2 (Alterna Comics) – The Fubar series of comics gives us a zombie twist on history. The latest volume puts us in Russia during World War II, where a zombie outbreak is causing the Russians some issues.

Material #1 (Image Comics) – A man comes home from Guantanamo Bay, irrevocably changed. An actress receives an offer that can revive her career. A boy survives a riot and becomes embedded within a revolutionary movement. A philosopher is contacted by a being that dismantles his beliefs. Ales Kot‘s latest sounds fascinating.

You Don’t Say (IDW Publishing/Top Shelf)Nate Powell‘s latest release from Top Shelf. All you need to know is it’s Nate Powell. That should be enough for you to pick this one up.

 

Edward

Top Pick: Surface Tension #1 (Titan Comics) – This new series puts a twist on the zombie/post-apocalyptic genre by taking a look at the world’s oceans and the environmental impact of our actions there.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad #3 (Marvel/Disney) – This Disney adaptation is doing what the best adaptations do – remind nothing of the original material (in this case a theme park ride) while capturing the same spirit.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #3 (Archie Comics) – Archie’s darker comics have been pretty fun so far.  Sabrina is not getting as much attention but she returns here for some more dark tales of sorcery.

He-Man Eternity War #6 (DC Comics) – Fantasy and Sci-Fi meet here and produce the best in the genre at the moment.  Those with inhibitions about He-Man should let go of the past and hop in for a wild ride.

Inhumans: Attilan Rising #1 (Marvel) – There has hardly been a misstep in Marvel’s relaunch and rebranding of the Inhumans.  It continues here with a big development.

 

“Big Daddy Cool” Johnny Dellarocca

Top Pick: Convergence: Shazam #2 (DC Comics) – It’s Steampunk vs. Dieselpunk! Plus the creative team of Parker and Shaner is an unbeatable combination.

Captain Midnight #23 (Dark Horse) – One of the best monthly series out there, and it looks like it’s coming to an explosive end with issue 24!

King Flash Gordon #2 (Dynamite Entertainment) – If all of the Dynamite King titles this has been the best. The creative team of Acker and Blacker has done a great job of continuing the amazing work of Parker and Shaner and have preserved the pace and fun of what went before. This has become one of favorite monthly titles.

Where Monsters Dwell #1 (Marvel) – As a Dieselpunk fan it really doesn’t get any better that flying ace The Phantom Eagle taking on monsters and dinosaurs! Sign me up!

Millennium

Joe Harris (w) • Colin Lorimer (a) • menton3 (c)

Fifteen years ago, the end of the world—the anticipated “Millennium Event”—was avoided thanks to the efforts of Frank Black and FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Or was it?

Once he starts, he can never go back…

Strange Nation Uncovered at IDW

Strange NationNorma Park used to have a bright future in journalism. Then she uncovered the terrifying truth about a dangerous conspiracy involving aliens, Sasquatch and doomsday cults! Now Norma finds herself fired from her prestigious newspaper and working at the supermarket tabloid Strange Nation. But nothing will keep Norma from sharing her terrible knowledge with the world!

In Strange Nation writer Paul Allor and artist Juan Romera unravel a tense, action-packed mystery in this Monkeybrain original tale that’s now coming to print.

Strange Nation is a book about the search for truth, and how much you’re willing to sacrifice for it. But, you know, in a fun way,” said Allor. “Juan and I were so proud to put Strange Nation out through Monkeybrain Comics, and are absolutely thrilled that the print edition has found a home at IDW, a publisher known for awesome and inventive comics that combine genre action with true heart.”

Strange Nation arrives in stores this August, and can be pre-ordered through your local comic shop!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

A-Force_1_CoverWednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Brett

Top Pick: A-Force #1 (Marvel) – An all-female Avengers team?! Hells yes! Sign me up. The team looks interesting and there’s promise of a new character being introduced who will play a big role. There’s lots of buzz for this book and I’m looking forward to it.

Max Max: Fury Road: Nux & Immortan Joe #1 (DC Comics/Vertigo) – If you saw the movie this weekend, you know why this is on the list.

Psycho Bonkers #1 (Aspen) – A fun car race comic featuring a teenage girl. This is something we need more of. It’s like Speed Racer for the Tween set.

Ultimate End #1 (Marvel) – And this is how a world ends…..

Valhalla Mad #1 (Image Comics) – Any new series from Image is on my radar. Three warrior gods vacationing on Earth by writer Joe Casey sounds awesome to me.

 

Edward

Top Pick: A-Force #1 (Marvel) – The all-female team for Marvel could be pretty fun if the characters aren’t just put there because of their gender.

Ei8ht #4 (Dark Horse) – More answers are due to be revealed in this tale of time travel.

Jem and the Holograms #3 (IDW Publishing) – This series has been a fun ride so far as the band starts to get more confidence.

Jungle Girl Seasons 3 #2 (Dynamite) –  This is a modern version of the jungle genre which once ruled comics.

Satellite Sam #14 (Image Comics) –  This world of debauchery and lies only gets more complicated after every issue.

 

Elana

Top Pick: A-Force #1 (Marvel) – This is the hottest ticket of the week — all of our favorite female heroes in a fascinating speculative world by ground-breaking writer, G. Willow Wilson.

A certain Harvard Professor might think this book looks like porn based on leading questions she asked her sons who are too young to know what porn is. But I know the difference. And even female characters with conventional comics bodies (oh well) can be written as full fledged characters that exist beyond just being subjects for an eroticized male gaze (yeah!). My money is on this being an outstanding book to love and share with your friends.

Convergence: New Teen Titans #2 (DC Comics) – “Why must I be a teengage superhero in looooove?” Only Dion and The Belmonts and Marv Wolfman know for sure. Last issue was everything I wanted: bronze age-worthy soap-y superhero romance, art with a classic feel and great “acting” via Nicola Scott and some things we didn’t know we wanted: namely the fact that apparently Cyborg and Beast-Boy are a couple? I’m still waiting on a fan who read the original series back in the day to tell me if this was a going theory back then. Anyway, this month’s should be all that and more.

Dirk Gently’s Wholistic Detective Agency #1 (IDW Publishing) –  I grew up loving the Hitchhiker’s Guide books. They were laugh out loud funny beyond anything else I’ve read yet full of real human emotion, even the aliens. This series is based off of related Douglas Adams novels. I hope this will be in the same spirit.

Jem and the Holograms #3 (IDW Publishing) – A comic book that has charmed everyone. Please get this in to the hands of teen readers! It is totally accessible to folks who never watched the show. Yet it embraces the true spirit of the show- a light sci-fi action story featuring strongly written diverse women. Apparently the movie missed that entirely.

Loki Agent of Asgard #14 (Marvel) – Al Ewing is really on a roll in his titles. I can’t wait to see where this series lands. Great characterization, emotional stakes are high, creative story and I really can’t predict where this will go. Not sure what to make of the new look Loki reveal from last issue. Is he some sort of integrated personality between evil King Loki and the heroic trickster from recent issues? No idea.

BOY-1 Evolves This August at IDW

IDW Publishing is adding the thrilling new creator-owned science-fiction miniseries, BOY-1, to their hit list of summer releases.

Penned by writer and creator HS Tak and vividly rendered by artist Amancay Nahuelpan, BOY-1 captures the futuristic journey of a man who discovers he is the subject of a groundbreaking experiment that spins out of control and soon threatens the extinction of all mankind. With nations hunting him as they struggle to maintain order, every move he makes comes with a thousand repercussions.

BOY-1 is set in a world after the completion of The Human Genome Project heralds a new age in science, medicine, and technology, but any form of human cloning has been deemed incompatible with society’s standard of ethics.

It then goes on to explore what could happen if a group of intrepid researchers didn’t listen…

BOY-1 is also being developed for television by Scripted World (Alon Aranya and Rob Golenberg), the producers behind Hostages and Betrayal.

Look for BOY-1 coming from IDW this August with stunning covers by Zach Howard and Amancay Nahuelpan as Scripted World targets a network TV launch in 2016.

IDW and Marvel Join Together for the Force

IDW Star Wars Artist EditionIDW Publishing and Marvel are proud to announce that they will expand their relationship once again… this time in a galaxy far, far away!

Ever since Star Wars took the world by storm in 1977, comic books have been an integral part of building its massive mythology. Now IDW Publishing is bringing Marvel’s wildly successful run of Star Wars comics to two unique formats that IDW pioneered.

STAR WARS ARTIST’S EDITIONS

IDW Publishing’s award-winning Artist’s Edition line presents complete stories with each page scanned and printed directly from the actual original comic book art at full size. While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—affording readers the opportunity to see blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections, etc.

This amazing and unique line has previously featured some of Marvel’s most beloved characters and creators, like Walter Simonson’s The Mighty Thor, John Romita’s The Amazing Spider-Man, and David Mazzucchelli’s Daredevil Born Again. In late fall of 2015, IDW and Marvel will team up once again to add Marvel’s Star Wars creators to this already illustrious list.

STAR WARS MICRO COLLECTORS FUN PACKS

Star Wars is also coming to the Micro Collectors Fun Pack line; a format pioneered by IDW that has fast become a fan-favorite. Micro Collector Fun Packs consist of a full-length, pocket-sized comic-book story, along with exclusive inserts including posters, standees, or stickers. Micro Collector Fun Packs continue to reach new audiences with great content and are available at both local comic shops and mass retail locations like Target and Toys “R” Us.

Each Star Wars Classic Micro Collector Fun Pack release will include a collectible classic Star Wars comic for fans to collect. The first set of Star Wars Classic Micro Collector Fun Packs, which have been designed to be enjoyed by Jedi of all ages, are planned for a fall 2015 release.
