IDW and Toho International Sign a Multi-Year Godzilla Publishing and Gaming Licensing Deal

Godzilla

IDW Publishing and Toho International, Inc. have announced a multi-year publishing program that will bring Godzilla and dozens of monsters from the Godzilla live-action films to a wide selection of publications and merchandise.

Beginning in spring 2021, Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and dozens of kaiju will stomp their way across IDW’s line of comic books, graphic novels, trade collections, art books, coloring books, journals, tabletop games, and puzzles. Furthering IDW’s company-wide mission to expand the most beloved story worlds across all mediums, the publishing program — available in print and digitally — will represent a comprehensive range of content, delivering city-stomping entertainment to young readers and adult audiences.

IDW will have worldwide distribution for Toho’s Godzilla comic book, graphic novel, gaming, and merchandise program, with the exception of some parts of Asia.

IDW’s debut Godzilla project of 2021 will be a five-issue miniseries by writer Erik Burnham, artist Dan Schoening, and colorist Luis Antonio Delgado. The comic book will be aimed at middle-grade readers and hits stores with its first issue in April.

The new licensing deal builds upon IDW’s prior comic publishing relationship with Toho. In March 2011, IDW launched its Godzilla comic book program with Godzilla: King of the Monsters, generating huge fan and media interest and garnering support from the retailer community with 80 exclusive variant covers. Through 2016, IDW published 10 Godzilla comic book series of varying lengths, collected in a series of trade paperback collections.

Two Moons Brings More Horror to the Civil War

Fan-favorite Rumble and B.P.R.D. writer John Arcudi joins artist Valerio Giangiordano for a bone-chilling tale of terror in the forthcoming Two Moons. The all-new ongoing horror series is set to launch from Image Comics this February.

Two Moons invites readers on the long journey of a young Pawnee man named Virgil Morris—aka Two Moons—fighting for the Union during the Civil War. When he is suddenly confronted with his shamanic roots, he discovers horrors far worse than combat as the ghosts of his past reveal the monstrous evil around him!

In the announcement release, Arcudi said:

Two Moons is a book I’ve been trying to write for years. It’s a horror/action story first and foremost, but it’s more than that for me and, I hope, for the reader. The complicated history of indigenous peoples during the 19th C. was what inspired me to take this story on and we explore some of that through the eyes of a young Pawnee man as he grows to learn more about his place in the world. And Valerio Giangiordano is absolutely KILLING it on the art! Could not have asked for a better collaborator on this gorgeous book. I’m excited to see this finally get out of my head and into readers’ hands.

Two Moons #1 Cover A by Giangiordano (DEC200044), Two Moons #1 Cover B Zaffino (DEC200045), and Two Moons #1 Cover C Blank (DEC200046) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, February 24.
