IDW Publishing Launches Five New Series in August

IDW is set to introduce readers to five brand-new original tales each week of the month this August! The Creator Visions event is a showcase of new series alongside the return of some fan-favorite titles that celebrate a breadth of unique and diverse comics. From the all-ages, action-packed adventures of Atomic Robo to an adaptation of a classic work of haunting literature, August has exceptional new material for every fan!

Kicking off the weekly event is the return of the fantasy epic, The Adventures of Augusta Wind by creators J.M. DeMatteis and Vassilis Gogtzilas. This new 5-issue series, The Adventures of Augusta Wind: The Last Story, will conclude the magical tale that began in 2012, filled with weird worlds, bizarre creatures, and terrible dangers!

Week two welcomes the return of the explosively fun series, Atomic Robo! This time around, take a trip back to 1938 with Robo as he investigates a deadly weapon alongside some unlikely allies in the five-issue Atomic Robo and The Temple of Od.

Jackboot & Ironheel arrives in the third week from 2000 AD’s Sinister Dexter co-creator and longtime Judge Dredd artist Max Millgate, following the grim turn of events for an English football star turned R.A.F. tail-gunner in the heat of World War II!

The charmingly profane and hilarious Superf*ckers, stars of a beloved Top Shelf graphic novel and corresponding YouTube series, make their monthly comic book debut from IDW in Superf*ckers Forever! Creator James Kochalka is bringing along some friends for this series with alternate covers and backups by some of indie comics’ biggest talents. August’s issue 1 sees a variant cover from Invincible artist Ryan Ottley and a back-up tale from cartoonist Jake Lawrence.

Finally, closing out the event is the first issue of Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me, adapted by Devin Faraci, and artist Vic Malhotra. Predating the most infamous serial killers of our time, Thompson’s classic pulp novel, deemed “chilling” by Stanley Kubrick, peeled back the curtain in terrifying detail on Lou Ford, the deputy of a small Texas town who just can’t keep his sickness to himself any longer…

The X-Files: Season 10 #1

Joe Harris (w) • Michael Walsh (a) • Carlos Valenzuela, photo (c)

For years they investigated the paranormal, pursued the “monsters of the week,” and sought the truth behind extraterrestrial activity, along with the grand conspiracy surrounding it rooted deep within their own government. But when AGENTS MULDER and SCULLY reunite for a new, ongoing series that ushers THE X-FILES into a new era of technological paranoia, multinational concerns and otherworldly threats, it’ll take more than a desire “to believe” to make it out alive. The X-Files: Season 10 also sees creator Chris Carter return to the fold as Executive Producer!

Grant Geissman (w) •  Al Feldstein (a & c)

FELDSTEIN: The MAD Life and Fantastic Art of Al Feldstein! takes a long-overdue look at the entire remarkable career of this legendary artist, writer, and editor. Both a full biography and a coffee-table art book, we begin with the earliest surviving Feldstein artwork from the High School of Music and Art, present his very earliest comic-book work, and follow his development from the 1940s Victor Fox shop (including the titillating “headlight” comics Junior, Sunny, and Meet Corliss Archer). And we examine his highly visceral work for the classic E.C. comic book line. Along with rare and previously unpublished photographs, the book pictures every E.C. Feldstein comic book cover (many placed alongside the original artwork), presents several complete E.C. stories, plus nearly every splash page and house ad Feldstein did for E.C. We trace his thirty-year career as the editor of MAD, and present his post-retirement work as a “fine” artist, including his prize-winning Western canvases and his many commissioned paintings “revisiting” his classic cover images from the 1950s. We examine every aspect of Feldstein’s long career and fascinating personal life, not all of it sweetness and light.

Elizabeth’s Canvas

Mark Waid, Gregg Hurwitz, Harlan Ellison, Chris Ryall, Scott Tipton, Jud Meyers (w) • David Messina, Claudia Balboni, Ryan Benjamin, Sara Pichelli, Elena Casagrande, Todd Harris (a) • Jenny Frison (c)

Fighting cancer isn’t just a struggle of the body. It’s also a fight with the heart, and the soul, and the spirit. The non-profit organization Elizabeth’s Canvas has been helping with that struggle by providing cancer patients, survivors, and their family members with art, photography, dance, and writing classes, at no charge, so that they can better cope with their symptoms and improve their well-being. Elizabeth’s Canvas classes are offered inside and outside hospitals, and are grounded in the belief that the creative process can strengthen the spirit and empower the mind.

Now, Elizabeth’s Canvas, IDW Publishing and Blastoff have come together to create this graphic novel, in which comic creators from across the industry interview the people behind the struggle with cancer — the patients, the nurses, the survivors, the researchers – and tell their stories, tales of defiance, perseverance, dedication and triumph.  All proceeds from the sale of the graphic novel will go to further fund and grow Elizabeth’s Canvas’ efforts.
