X-Files Season 10
The X-files one of the best damn shows on TV became last year a great comic book from IDW. It takes place after the events of the second movie and Mulder an Scully rejoin the FBI. Its a great set up with other great characters returning to help and cause problems. The Lone gunmen returned and actually teamed up with the Ghostbusters, The Crow and The Transformers, and TMNT other titles that IDW publishes. They also have been reissuing the old Topps Comics in the X-Files Classics books. VOl 4 is due out soon. Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard (issues 7-current) started out on this comic book, get a chance to see his art work on color. Jonathan Maberry creator of V wars and several other writers will be doing a tales of the X-Files book soon. A board game set during S1-3 will be out soon.
Speaking of V Wars based on his best selling prose novel series Jonathan Maberry has turned it into a hit comic book. Its a great visual to an awesome original Vampire story. A game is coming out from IDW as well in a few months. I just turned my short story into Jonathan for Vol 3 due out in Spring Summer 2015. The comic introduces the Blood Queen a leader to these Vampires. After a ice berg melts and unleashes a virus that turns people into non supernatural Vampires the V wars begin. 6 issues in and they took a break for a month and come back in Oct with the second story arc. Alternate covers to this book are by Kevin Eastman co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The King of the Monsters has a great line up of action comics out from IDW. How cool would it be to see Godzilla fight Omega Supreme from the Transformers or Devastaor, or TRYPTICON. ( Can’t tell I love Transformers can you?) This comic features all of his rouge gallery and a bunch of monsters he never fought in the movies, but had movies of their own from TOHO. How cool would it be to see Godzilla fight Gamera in a comic?
Here is the one horror related title I don’t pick up that often and only read the first few trade paperbacks. Currently the Ghostbusters are missing and Janeie the receptionist has assembled a new team of younger Ghostbusters to fill the guys …..uhhh proton pack. I like what I have seen so far and look forward to finally getting caught up.
IDW also published 30 Days of Night( the book that started them on a great path of becoming an amazing publisher. Transformers, My Little Pony!!!, Star Trek GI Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, (honestly my favorite comic form the company its that good.) the Crow, and sooooo many others. They just ended Locke and Key which was massivly successful for the company. We gave away some X-Files goodies and Godzilla comics as well, thanks to our contact NATE and we look forward to see what is coming next from IDW.
