SAN DIEGO, CA  – The Rocketeer, the pulp-inspired hero immortalized by the late, great Dave Stevens, blasts off once more in December with the first issue of a brand-new five issue IDW series: Rocketeer Reborn!

Writers Elsa Charretier and Pierrick Colinet (collaborators on Star Wars Adventures and The Infinite Loop) and artist Javier Pulido (Human Target, Hawkeye) reintroduce an all-new jetpack wearing hero into the 21st century.

In Rocketeer Reborn, eighty years have passed since Cliff Secord first found an experimental jetpack and soared through the skies as a high-flying hero. Now, decades later, The Rocketeer is all but forgotten to most people, a legend of a bygone era...

A Serial Killer, a Girl, and a Gun (Named Gold-Digger)

Lodger, by David and Maria Lapham, Finds a Home at IDW’s Black Crown Imprint

David and Maria Lapham, the creative legends behind the long-running, Eisner Award-winning comic book series Stray Bullets, bring Lodger, a brutal psychological thriller, to Black Crown, IDW’s creator-owned imprint for fiercely independent voices. Debuting in October, Lodger is a pulse-pounding game of cat-and-mouse through roadside America between a vengeful young woman and the serial killer who ruined her life.

“When it comes to crime fiction in any medium, one name remains unparalleled,” says editor Shelly Bond. “The Laphams bring over twenty years of blood, guts, and glory to Black Crown with this lurid tale of lust, secret identities, and sweet revenge.”

Lodger follows a handsome drifter who murders...

Euthanauts #1

Writer: Tini Howard
Artist: Nick Robles
Letters: Aditya Bidikar
Publisher: IDW

There was something special about the woman at the restaurant. Thalia did not know what it was, other than that she was obviously terminally ill, but that wasn’t it. No, there was something more to it, but Thalia could not put her finger on it. When Mercy Wolfe followed her into the restaurant bathroom, Thalia had no idea her whole world was about to change.

Black Crown’s inaugural issue of Euthanauts is a visual masterpiece right from the beginning. Nick Robles’s art is sharp and on point, delivering a tone of brilliant contrast from the start.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Usagi Yojimbo (Extended Edition)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Usagi Yojimbo, The Expanded Edition. If it feels like you’ve seen this cover before, it’s because you have. The ‘expanded’ edition is now the third printing of this one-shot. First, there was a regular printing, then a hardcover with a few extras, now the expanded edition. Since this is a reprint, let’s reprint my initial review and move on from there.

TMNT and Usagi have a long and storied past.  Both creations first appeared in 1984 as black and white, creator owned, anamorphic characters, with asian influences. By 1989, the Turtles’ franchise was picking up steam, and a conversation between Usagi Creator Stan Sakai and TMNT co-creator Peter Laird resulted in Usagi being released as part of the TMNT Playmate Toys line...
