Gold Eagle Books and IDW Partnership
Beginning in February 2008 IDW Publishing will be releasing comic book and graphic novel versions of The Executioner and Rogue Angel!
IDW Editor Tom Waltz shares his thoughts on the partnership: "I've been a huge fan of the Mack Bolan prose stories for many years, so I was ecstatic when IDW President Ted Adams gave me the green light to approach Gold Eagle about the Executioner license. Things got even better when Gold Eagle not only showed an excited interest in bringing Bolan's adventures into the comic book realm, but Annja Creed's (a.k.a. Rogue Angel) as well. Rogue Angel was a new title for me when we started this process, but one I've quickly come to dig as much as the Bolan books, and I'm proud as heck to be part of the team that will bring these fascinating pulp heroes to comic book and graphic novel readers everywhere. Working with Gold Eagle has been wonderful, and our talented creators are churning out awesome stories and artwork. I can't wait for fans, old and new, to see what we have to offer."
IDW Publishing is a division of Idea and Design Works, LLC, a revolutionary creative service company with a wide range of clients. Among its best-selling titles are Hasbro’s THE TRANSFORMERS; Paramount/CBS’s STAR TREK; Fox’s ANGEL; Konami’s METAL GEAR SOLID; and Peter David’s FALLEN ANGEL. IDW’s 30 DAYS OF NIGHT film from Sony Pictures was released last month and was the #1 movie in its first week of release. IDW has other films in development at Dimension Films and Paramount Pictures as well. We're really excited to see Mack and Annja in their hands!
We'll be sharing more details and showcasing the creative teams of both comics in the next few days, so stay tuned for more!
