Image isn't everything



(I know, that's a juvenile play on the tagline from that old Andre Agassi commercial, and isn't meant as any indicator about the company itself since I like the folks there and I like what they do, but I had to have a little fun with this. Besides, who knows how long it'll last?)

Anyway, from iCV2.com:

IDW Makes a Move

Hits #4 Market Share in Comic Stores


Powered by its Whedon (Angel, Spike), Transformers, Dr. Who, Star Trek, and other licensed titles (see “Top 300 Comics—August 2008”), IDW hit the #4 market share rank in comic stores in August, a new high for the company. IDW topped Image, which has generally held the #4 slot. Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse held their customary top three slots.

While one month does not a trend make, IDW has been steadily expanding both its roster of licenses and its in-house titles. At the very least, IDW appears to be ready to compete for a higher rank on an ongoing basis.

Giant transforming robots, star trekking and quality British SF, excellent quality writing, fantastic art - no wonder you're rocking hardcore.


Congratulations to all involved



Now, if we could get some more British SF..... IDW could rule the world and show that other company where it can put it's secret final civil crisis invasion :D

Speaking of British sci fi, I'm trying to convince people here to go after the old OMEGA FACTOR license, but I think I'm the only one who's heard of it...
