A (Phone Cam) Look at IDW The First Decade

Ted Adams over at IDW sent this amazing coffee table book to the CBR offices earlier this week and I figured we should give you a look at what they put together.

Here it is, sitting on the CBR coffee table.



Sam Humphries stopped by earlier today and when he looked at it he said, “This has Scott Dunbier’s fingerprints all over it.” Scott, an editor at IDW and formerly with Wildstorm, is known for his work on beautifully packaged hard covers and the like. I mentioned this to Scott later in the day and he said this whole thing was Ted’s idea and that he was very jealous of the clam-shell design of the case that holds three books inside – a sampler comic, a lengthy retrospective of the first 10 years of IDW simply called “IDW: The First Decade” and a book collecting all the covers IDW has published from January 2001 through December 2008. The two books themselves sit inside padded box.



Check out this crazy fold out poster inside the “First Decade” book. This one features “Zombies: Fast” art by Chris Bolton. This isn’t the only poster in the book.


And finally a look at the two books open. Gorgeous, high quality stuff.


If you’ve been following IDW over the last 10 years, then this is a must have book for you, sharing behind-the-scenes stories and more about the publishing company from its humble beginnings to today.

I love it – you mention everything but the amazing Ashley Wood art on the inside. I’ll be buying it just for that.
