There are contact details below for Publishers and Creators who might be interested in this venture.
Alongside classics like Locke & Key, Parker, and The Rocketeer, there are new successes like Ragnarök, Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland, and D4VE. Similarly their licensed properties Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Trek, Ghostbusters, and The X-Files were boosted in 2015 by Back to the Future, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Orphan Black, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
IDW CEO Ted Adams said:
“Controlling our own global publishing was a natural step for IDW as we continue our growth as a fully integrated media company. We’re very pleased to also provide global publishing services for Archie and we’ll be adding other creators and publishers as the new year progresses. Interested creators or publishers should contact Jeff Webber at email@example.com.”
Archie have been aboard for a while and Archie Comics Publisher/CEO Jon Goldwater said
“It’s been a longtime goal of mine to expand the Archie brand internationally in terms of translations. Expanding our existing partnership with IDW will help make this a reality. We are all immensely excited to help IDW launch their new International division with some of the most beloved properties in pop culture: Archie and the gang.”
IDW International will make its debut at Angoulême International Comics Festival held this year from January 28th – 31st. For licensing and representation opportunities or to schedule a meeting at Angoulême, contact Jeff Webber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
