“Since we first conceived of Monkeybrain Comics,” Allison Baker says, “our goal has always been to make it as easy as possible for readers to enjoy our titles, in as many formats as possible. IDW has impressed us for years with their high production values, quality content, and business savvy, and we’re delighted that they’ll be helping our creators achieve that goal.”
“Monkeybrain was founded because we love comics,” Chris Roberson adds. “And thanks to IDW, we’ll have even more comics to love.”
The schedule will continue on with AMELIA COLE AND THE UNKNOWN WORLD by writers Adam P. Knave and D.J. Kirkbride and artist Nick Brokenshire premiering in August and titles like Dan Goldman’s RED LIGHT PROPERTIES, Kevin Church and Grace Allison’s WANDER, and many more to follow.
“Monkeybrain has brought in top creators to launch some of the best original digital comics around,” states Jeff Webber, IDW’s VP of Digital Publishing. “This is a great opportunity for new readers to discover these titles in their local comic shops or bookstores. And the fans that have read the digital versions can add a fine printed collection to their shelves.”
Monkeybrain has provided an innovative platform for creators to tell vivid, daring stories, and IDW is beyond excited to join in on the fun and put more great comics into fans’ collections!
