IDW Publishing has announced that it will begin publishing print versions of Monkeybrain Comics’ digital comics in June.
The parternship will begin with Edison Rex, by Chris Roberson and Dennis Culver and will include new “a number” of titles.
“Since we first conceived of Monkeybrain Comics,” co-founder Allison Baker said, “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,” Roberson said. “And thanks to IDW, we’ll have even more comics to love.”
The print schedule will continue on with Amelia Cole and The Unknown World by writers Adam P. Knave and D.J. Kirkbride and artist Nick Brokenshire in August and will also include Dan Goldman’s Red Light Properties and Kevin Church and Grace Allison’s Wander.
“Monkeybrain has brought in top creators to launch some of the best original digital comics around,” said 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.”
