IDW Publishing was a strong presence at C2E2 this year, making several big announcements that will be sure to leave comic book fans happy. The first title comes from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtlesco-creator Kevin Eastman and Tom Skulan, and art by Eric Talbot. The book, Zombie War, features a tough fighter pilot as they try to figure out how to stop those who were once in the grave from wreaking havoc on the world as they begin to come back to life. This series will be coming out this October, so join IDW in an exploration of zombie culture!
IDW also announced the end of the acclaimed Locke & Key franchise with the upcoming Locke & Key: Alpha. While the Omega series was expanded as part of the end of the series, the two forty-eight page Alpha issues will bring some finality to the illustrious franchise, with the last two issues carrying some extra weight to contain all the destruction and chaos that comes with ending such an incredible series. Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s epic conclusion will release shortly after the Omega series concludes, so fans of the series should take note of the end of this epic title.
Josh Ortega and Digger T. Mensch have teamed with Kevin Eastman to bring forth a different kind of zombie series, where animals have come back from the dead in a colorful, fast-paced series. The Other Dead will move across six insane issues of violence, action and horror. With artwork by Qing Ping Mui and colors by Blond, this looks to be an very interesting series, something that will likely be confirmed when it releases in September.
In other news, IDW has announced post-C2E2 that there will be an epic crossover coming from the company this September. Two iconic franchises face off as Mars Attacks Judge Dredd! The alien forces from Mars go up against the Mega-City One supercop in this amazing mash-up. Al Ewing, John McCrea and Greg Staples kick off the first issue of this epic tale as the conquering Martians make their way to Mega City One. Only with IDW can fans see these two legendary franchises face off, so be on the lookout for this incredible series soon!
