This week saw the launch of IDW and Disney’s brand new DuckTales comic, based on the newly-returned—and utterly fantastic—animated series. It’s a great way to squeeze a little extra Duckburg goodness into your week between episodes. But so far, it’s missing some of the elements that’s made the new show so great.
The Klingons of Star Trek have a long, storied history of having their long, storied history explored and evolved every time we see them. Star Trek: Discovery’s take on them is no different, but these new Klingons have been shrouded in mystery. Until now, that is, thanks to the new Discovery comic.

You know, the one everyone suspects of slipping more than a little booze into their coffee as they make their way into the classroom?
The world of comics has been without giant, burly scifi soldiers carving bloody messes into alien hordes with their chainsaw guns for far too long since Wildstorm’s Gears of War comic came to an end in 2012. But good news for COG fans: the series is making a triumphant, gory return thanks to IDW.
Three years ago, two sets of NYC-based heroes met up to defeat a supernatural menace in an IDW comic miniseries. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghostbusters are doing it again this November, with some very... interesting action figures to match.
The sequel to Jack Black’s 2015 Goosebumps flick is set to take a journey to Horrorland, the creepy amusement park from R.L. Stine’s iconic children’s book franchise. So, it should come as no surprise that the first Goosebumps comic book is also taking us to the little park of horrors.
For years, The X-Files has trawled the dark, weird world of conspiracy theories for stories—but its latest comic is going to be tackling one of the biggest and wildest slate of theories in the world: the conspiracies surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy in November 1963.
It’s no surprise that a comic book based on the classic whodunnit board game Clue is outlandishly silly—after all, just like the beloved movie, it’s hard to take the fact you’re an adaptation of a board game with any sense of seriousness. IDW’s new Clue series rolls with that, and takes it a step further with several…
The Legend of Korra brought a new twist to Avatar’s world of element-wielding magic users by introducing Pro-Bending, a 3v3 spectator sport where benders could use their abilities in arena combat. Now, it’s becoming the first official Korra board game, thanks to IDW and Nickelodeon.

A new IDW comic plans to bring the Next Generation crew to the Mirror Universe—but how? We spoke to the team behind Mirror Broken to learn more.
Tomorrow, May 6, is basically comic book fan Christmas—because it’s Free Comic Book Day, the annual celebration across comic stores the world over to revel in the comics we love (and get free ones, too).

Beat the heat over the summer with a few of our recommendations for all the new series you should check out in the next few months.
While New Brunswick-based artist Gisele Lagace has worked on comics for Dynamite, IDW, Archie, and Marvel, she’s also a freelance illustrator. Like many freelancers, she saw Chicago’s C2E2 as an opportunity to do some important self-promotion and potentially sign on to do some commission work.
Great news if you like the look of the upcoming DuckTales revival (which we do!): IDW is going to start running its own tie-in comic to the show, which means life in Duckberg is going to be very busy in the near future. Hurricane-like, even.
Thought Marvel had the monopoly on Star Wars comics? Think again. IDW announced at Celebration today that it’s starting its own line of all-ages Star Wars books, and we’ve got a sneak peek at the first: an anthology series called Star Wars Adventures.
George Takei’s recounts of his time at a Japanese-American internment camp have been put to page and brought to the stage. Now, he’s signed a book detail with IDW Publishing to create a graphic novel about what it was like for those imprisoned because of their heritage.
Later this week, Ghostbusters 101 is setting up a pan-universal crossover between the original Ghostbusters team and the crew from the 2016 movie—but before that, we’ve got to see what Patty, Holtzmann, Erin, and Abby have been up to since the events of their film. Our exclusive preview of issue one does just that.
