Comic-Con Recap: A San Diego perspective
IDW Publishing, a San Diego comic-book publisher, was at the Con this year. Here’s what you missed if you didn’t stop by their booth:
- IDW’s new True Blood comic was released and it sold out super-duper fast.
- Amongst IDW’s catalog of big, recognizable names is a little comic called Kill Shakespeare. It’s an unexpected rising star and seems to be rocking the underground nerdy masses. Who new Shakespeare would have fans in the geeky comic underworld?
