Princess Bride Coloring Book

IDW has produced a Princess Bride coloring book for adults.  Yes it is an older movie, but this could be a good time for you to set down with the younger generation and share the movie with them and then color together in the book.  The movie is just to much fun not to involve everyone.  Here’s the spot for the Princess Bride coloring book from IDW’s YouTube channel:

G.I. Joe’s New Snake Eyes Trailer

IDW Publishing has introduced a new Snake Eyes to the world of G. I. Joe and readers.  The story is written by, long time G. I. Joe scribe, Larry Hama with art by Netho Diaz, who also did the cover art that we have pictured.  The story takes the memories of Snake Eyes and implants them into a different person.  Now remember G. I. Joe, even though is in a fairly present day setting, still uses fantastical storytelling, so just enjoy and have fun with it.  The story lines runs through issue #246 – #250, of G. I. Joe: A Real American Hero, and will be collected afterwards by IDW for libraries and those that like collected editions rather than issues.  Here’s the trailer from IDW’s YouTube channel:

Star Trek Comics From IDW

Remember that IDW Publishing has had the Star Trek license for some time now.  So for all the SciFi and Star Trek fans out there and any libraries that might not have had them in their collection, be sure to look for IDW’s many collected editions of their Star Trek comic book lines.  Here’s a glimpse of what they currently have going on from their YouTube channel:

Wynonna Earp Trailer

I haven’t seen this yet, but it might be one of interest for everyone.  Wynonna Earp is SyFy’s adapation of the comic book series, which is currently at IDW publishing.  Basically a modern Supernatural Western.  Here’s the trailer from SyFy’s YouTube channel:

ROM is Back!

How many of you remember this Marvel Comic and toy?  It’s ROM!  He’s back and IDW has him.  I am working on my ROM series and lack some issues and I never had the toy and haven’t found one to pick up for my collection.  Anyway, IDW has acquired the rights and is putting out a ROM: The Space Knight Free Comic Book Day issue to debut a new series in July 2016.  Now I can’t wait until Free Comic Book Day gets here to get my copy.

Wynonna Earp Possibly on Small Screen

Wynonna Earp, a live action adaptation of Beau Smith’s comic book, from IDW Comics is set to debut in April of 2016.  Melanie Scrofano will portray Earp in this modern day ancestor of Earp that hunts things that go bump in the night.  Thanks to CBR and ICv2 for the update.  Hopefully it will turn out to be a good show.

Star Wars Micro Comics and Cards

star wars micro

This is interesting.  IDW Publishing is trying something new in the collectible market with the Star Wars license.  They are producing blind packs for Star Wars Marvel minicomics, 3-D posters, 3-D glass, and trading cards that are puzzle pieces to form comic covers.  All this for $3.99.  Sounds good until you look at the break down of what’s in the packet.  You have a chance to get one of the six mini comics, a chance to get one of the six 3-D posters, a pair of 3-D glass.  Doesn’t sound to bad yet, but then you get to the trading cards.  You get a chance of getting 1 of 36 cards.  That’s going to be a lot of duplicates to get a full set of the 36 trading cards.

Don’t get me wrong everything looks neat and all and there will be collectors that love this, but for my wallet it’s just beyond my means.

Back to the Future in Comic Books

back

IDW has announced plans to bring about a comic book adaptation of the Back to the Future franchise.  Stories will be centered around before the movies, between the movies, and in the alternate realities created by the time traveling.  This could be a fun read for all the fans of the movies.

TMNT MiniComic Packs

If you are a comic book collector and/or into the “Turtles” this might interest you.  IDW Publishing will be adding the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to its Micro Comic Fun Packs.  The Fun Packs are scheduled for an April 1 release date (this is a weird date so hopefully they aren’t pulling our leg).  The packs will contain one of four, 22 page mini comics, if you want to purchase them to add to you collections.
