IDW Publishing made a major announcement today. It will be publishing a line of all-ages Marvel comics. Press details are below.

Marvel and IDW to Create New Comic Books for the Next Generation of Readers
The new comic book line featuring Spider-Man, The Avengers, and Black Panther will be available starting this November

Marvel Entertainment and IDW Publishing announced today that the two companies will develop middle-grade comic books designed for younger readers. Featuring some of Marvel’s most popular characters, the monthly issues and trade paperback collections, published by IDW, will be available for sale at local comic book shops and book retailers across the country, expanding opportunities for the next generation of Super Heroes to experience the Marvel Universe.

“From Iron Man to Captain Marvel, from the Hulk to Shuri — the Marvel pantheon has something for everyone,” says John Barber, editor-in-chief of IDW. “With this team-up, Marvel and IDW aim to bring exciting, all-new comics to a generation growing up in a Marvel world.”

Launching in November 2018, the Marvel and IDW collaboration will kick off with a Spider-Man series featuring both Peter Parker and Miles Morales, followed by an Avengers series beginning in December and a Black Panther series in January 2019. Each of these titles will serve as an easily-accessible jumping-on point for younger readers to follow the adventures of their favorite characters.

“Marvel is excited to work with IDW to share these brand-new stories with our younger fans,” said C.B. Cebulski, editor-in-chief of Marvel. “Characters like Spider-Man, Black Panther, and the Avengers inspire us through their strength and determination, but they resonate with readers because of the struggles they face and the challenges they overcome. We want to share their journeys with our younger fans first-hand.”

“Marvel is committed to delivering unique and accessible content for our younger audiences and fans,” said Sven Larsen, director, licensed publishing of Marvel. “As one of our most valued partners, IDW is the right fit to help us feature some of our most popular characters and publish stories created especially for the next generation of Super Heroes.”

“This partnership reflects the true spirit of collaboration at work,” said Greg Goldstein, president and publisher of IDW. “As comic book publishers, IDW and Marvel are able to produce high-quality visual storytelling experiences for fans both young and old. By combining our efforts, along with Marvel’s ever-increasing presence in popular culture, the results will be spectacular.”

Story details and creative teams for the new line of middle-grade comic books will be announced at a later date.

I don't understand why they're doing this through IDW. I hope that the content is well written. I miss quality all ages comics. Looking at the promo image, I wouldn't be surprised if this was in line with the current cartoon.

What is going on at Marvel that they can’t publish this stuff themselves, or through Disney Press like that Gravity Falls comic (which is awesome, btw). Is it not in the budget? A lack of resources? Just don’t want to do it?

Kind of sad when one of the largest comic publishers in the U.S. is too incompetent to make all-ages books themselves. Oh well, props to IDW for getting another big liscense!

(Now if only they'd do more all-ages Hasbro books too! I need my Equestria Girls & Rescue Bots Academy Comics dag nab it!)
