IDW's new releases... postponed for one week only
This week, IDW has no releases in stores. The freighter with our books coming over for release this week got held up in customs, which happens every once in a great while. So this week's titles are being held over for next week, which means a lot of books next Wednesday...
So let's press on with a new image instead of the usual Monday list of new releases. The cover below is from our upcoming TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED miniseries. This one's from issue 2, and the art was done by one of the show's designers, Irineo Maramba.
Also, I woke up this morning to news that the great George Carlin died yesterday, which was quite a shock and more than a little depressing. Who's going to be here to point out all our ridiculous foibles now?
I met and got to spend some time with George on the set of Kevin Smith's film, JERSEY GIRL a few years back. I detailed the whole experience in a few column's at Kevin's old site (a couple of which were wrecked by a hacker), but didn't really talk much about George at the time. For all his on-stage bluster, he seemed a pretty private person, but was very interesting to talk (mostly listen) to, and very sober-minded about the way he approached his work and the world. And he was just great in the movie, too. Then again, when wasn't he?
