Sunday Press Joins IDW Publishing
Leading comic book and graphic novel publisher IDW Publishing has announced the inclusion of Sunday Press Books into its publishing family.
Sunday Press Books is a specialty publishing house best known for its restoration of classic American comic strips, reprinted as gorgeous hardcover editions in the original size and colors. The brainchild of Peter Maresca, Sunday Press has rekindled our collective fascination with such beloved features as Little Nemo in Slumberland, Krazy Kat, Thimble Theatre, and more. These collections have received dozens of salutations and awards, including a stream of seventeen Will Eisner Comic Industry Award nominations for thirteen years running.
The partnership between IDW and Sunday Press will preserve Maresca’s independence and keen eye for curating American comic strips, both famous and forgotten, while bolstering the reach of distribution and marketing for its output. Acclaimed out-of-print collections will see new printings, and IDW will launch a digital publishing program, bringing these classics to a new generation of comics aficionados.
IDW Publishing’s first Sunday Press publication, Little Joe (the uncredited work from Little Orphan Anniecreator, Harold Gray), will debut in late 2019. Fans are encouraged to follow IDW Publishing website and social media for the latest updates on Sunday Press’ current and future releases.
