Transformers: More with Less

Transformers #23 CoverGrowing up as the only boy with four sisters I learned many valuable lessons over time.

  1. As much as I wanted a brother to be thankful the only boy because I never had to share.
  2. How to talk my way out of (or into) most situations.
  3. To appreciate peace and quiet.
  4. How to do more with less.
  5. What to do or not to do to score a date.

IDW Publishing‘s Transformers comics have really captured points 3 and 4. Sure they’ve done some things some people may not have liked i.e. killing The Wreckers or revealing Ultra Magnus wasn’t just one Transformer, but many who carried on what Ultra Magnus stood for as an ideal because the original got blown to slag a few centuries ago. However they continue to hit out of the park with this current iteration of Transformers comics with incredible storytelling, original ideas with just enough TV cannon (the return of female autobots) to keep old heads like me hooked and stunning art by guys like Alex Milne, one of the best kept secrets in comics, who hooked me with his art in issues 22 & 23 of the 2009 Transformers series.

Oh by the way this is just the comics!

If you’ve been to whoever sells toys in your area you may noticed all the kick-ass Transformers toys hitting the shelves based on the IDW series. The Orion Pax and Springer toys had me in full nerd-gasm the first time I saw them and if you have not seen what they have planned for 2015… A new Superion, Menasor and bunch of other Cybertronian goodies that will have your wallet reciting the Universal Greeting.

So in a world where the Big 2 continue move forward with corporate mandated event after event. I’ll continue to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Transformers by IDW and watch as they create a more alluring book with less resources than others.

SDCC 2014: Darby Pop Announces Dead Squad

At San Diego Comic-Con, Darby Pop Publishing announced plans for a brand new series, their fifth, to launch in October. Dead Squad is written by Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia, and will be distributed by IDW Publishing. While the duo of Federman and Scaia is relatively new to comics, their work is well-known to genre fans as they have written and produced for a number of “cult” television series including Jericho, Warehouse 13, and DC’s Human Target. Additionally, the pair is responsible for two high-profile features in development, Y: The Last Man (with New Line) and Ghost Recon (with Michael Bay/Ubisoft/Warner Brothers).

Dead Squad spins the tale of three U.S. military operatives who discover that their commanding officer has gone rogue, meaning that they are now considered traitors as well. Unfortunately, this realization comes only moments before their years of service are rewarded with a swarm of snipers’ bullets. Since the trio’s early deaths would make for a very truncated series, however, each is granted a reprieve thanks to advanced nanotech and a government intent on interrogating them mercilessly.  But the stay of execution is a limited one, as the Dead Squad learns that the “biotic” serum reanimating them is only a “beta” version with a 30 hour life span. Living on borrowed time, the Dead Squad must track down their betrayer and retrieve the one thing that can keep them alive — knowing all the while that a very different “after-life” awaits each of them.

The “Dead Squad” creative cadre is rounded out by the art team of Kirk Van Wormer, Michael Montenat, and Doug Sirois. And their artwork will be brought to life by colorist Sirois, who’s contributing to his third Darby Pop Publishing title.

Cover duties for the debut issue are being handled by Top Cow alum Steve Firchow, with the legendary Howard Chaykin contributing both a subscription cover and a convention-exclusive sketch variant.

IDW to bring Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency to TV and Comics

max landisIDW Entertainment and Ideate Media announced today they have optioned the worldwide rights to Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency novels. IDWE and Ideate have formed a partnership to co-fund development and co-produce with the intent of securing a direct-to-series commitment. Circle of Confusion will Executive Produce.

Max Landis has been tapped to write the pilot and Executive Produce. Max is the writer of feature films Chronicle, upcoming American Ultra starring Kirsten Stewart & Jesse Eisenberg, and upcoming Frankenstein starring Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy. Max will also make his directorial debut with the comedy Me, Him, Her starring Haley Joel Osment and Geena Davis in 2015.

After creating the phenomenon that was The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams went on to write a series of best-selling novels about Dirk Gently, a detective with a belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, a unique relationship with the laws of probability and physics, and a love of cats and pizza.

Dirk Gently is a charismatic, mysterious, troubled, brilliant, figure – cursed with a relentless intellect, psychic powers he doesn’t fully understand or want, a gift for self-mythologizing, and a supernatural ability to detect disturbances in the fabric of reality, Dirk has found a strange calling as a private detective for impossible crimes.

Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, Arvind Ethan David and Zainir Aminullah of Ideate, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion will serve as executive producers.

In addition to the television series, IDW Publishing & Ideate Media will develop a series of Dirk Gently comic books for release next spring.

Alicia Keys Makes Her Children’s Book Debut This August at IDW

Layout 115-time Grammy award winning Alicia Keys announced the expansion of her groundbreaking storytelling app Mama Mae & LeeLee into an upcoming children’s book from IDW Publishing. In 2012, Keys debuted her digitally interactive app The Journal of Mama Mae & LeeLee, immersing users in a vibrant and heartfelt tale. The first story from the acclaimed app, Blue Moon: From The Journals Of Mama Mae And LeeLee, will published in book form this August.

The Journals of Mama Mae & LeeLee offers a poignant and interactive experience that revolves around LeeLee, a creative young girl who struggles with moving to a new city. Aided by her grandmother Mama Mae, LeeLee is introduced to tales built around Mama Mae’ four pillars: authenticity, empowerment, self-confidence, and exploration. With these stories opening her eyes to new characters and circumstances, LeeLee learns to recognize her inner potential. Featuring original and exclusive music from Alicia Keys herself, the app provides a truly dynamic experience for child users.

IDW Publishing’s hardcover adaptation of Blue Moon features beloved characters LeeLee, Mama Mae, and introduces the inspirational story of Abey, a young 17th century Native American girl, whose extraordinary adventures challenge her curiosity and test her courage. Though obstacles stand in her way, Abey finds her way home with a little faith in herself and help from new friends. Written by Alicia Keys, Jessica Walton, Cheryl Abood, and Victoria Racino, this new book is brought to life by the same captivating visuals from Bento Box Interactive.

Review: The X-Files: Year Zero #1

STK642824IDW continues its reverent treatment of The X-Files mythos with this five-issue limited series, Year Zero, a thrilling origin story that links unexplained mysteries nearly a century apart. After the FBI receives prophetic messages from a blue-collar worker in New Jersey via a mysterious ‘Mr. Zero,’ Agent Mulder is convinced it is the same ‘Mr. Xero’ that contacted a suburban housewife in the 1940s.

Writer Karl Kesel clearly enjoys the duel time periods, especially “the Russian red menace, atomic mutations, and flying saucers” of the 1940s “UFO Noir,” as he so eloquently put. While we don’t see little green men in this first book, he’s set the stage for time-spanning spookiness. An origin story also brings new characters. Kesel maintains Mulder’s dry humor and Scully’s skepticism, but aptly introduces a gritty Agent Bing Ellinson and an ambitious Millie Ohio.

Though I wasn’t a fan of artist Michael Walsh‘s work on Season 10, I have no complaints with the Year Zero illustration tag team Greg Scott and Vic Malhotra. In fact, in a genius division of duties, Scott has the present day storyline and Malhotra took the the 1940s panels which adds a truly unique touch to the issue. Hopefully they can keep that up the length of the series.

Executive produced by creator Chris Carter, this first issue is a great start to a promising series, one which will hopefully answer some of the series’ burning questions. After sweeping this year’s Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards with seven wins, IDW is clearly the publisher to beat.
