IDW and Desperado Join Forces
GO IDW GO! Announced today, Desperado is now an imprint of IDW. Cool stuff, that I am happy to see find a home with the great folks over at IDW. IDW has been slowly growing by leaps and bounds over the last few years and over the last year alone, they have acquired quite an assortment of worthy imprints, including: Robert Bloch, The Library of American Comics (strip collections), Worthwhile Books (great all ages picture books) and now Desperado!
Desperado has jumped around from being self-published to an imprint over at Image and back to self-publishing. Now that they have joined with IDW, they can focus on getting their high quality books out on a more regular basis.
This is great news! Congrats to Joe Pruett and the whole crew over at Desperado for what is sure to be a great decision, and congrats to IDW for being smart enough to bring Desperado under the IDW banner.
Some of the great books that I've enjoyed over the years from Desperado: The Art of P. Craig Russell, the gorgeous Art of Brian Bolland, the Obergeist collection, and the forth-coming Art of Tony Harris hardcover. Damn that will be another one for the bookcase for sure.
