IDW reprinting Marvel series

I found this news that IDW is running a series of reprints of Marvel publications, beginning with Walt Simonson's run on Thor, though this one is in black & white. It got me to thinking: could this be a sign that Marvel Entertainment, as it's officially known today, might be willing to sell ownership of the book publishing division to another owner?

For now, there's no way to tell, but if they did, I've got a feeling IDW might be able to turn things around. If they went with a different approach to format and marketing, that is.

Labels: ,

That's pretty good news and IDW publishing has always given us quality and a freshness that no one else has.

I won't be surprised if they simply start licensing out their characters, especially for miniseries. They'll probably retain the "core" universe for the foreseeable future, though they'll likely pare it down to a handful of books. We may be seeing the end of event comics.

Might be worth it to see someone finally write Blade decently again...

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
