IDW Opens Comic-Con@Home Webstore Amid Company Changes

IDW Publishing is in the midst of significant changes, as they bid farewell (again) to an architect that helped shaped the company into what it is today, while also letting the new guard rise. That doesn't mean that they aren't here for their loyal readers and said readers' open wallets because they have just launched an expansive webstore. Below, we will showcase what you can get from the store, including SDCC exclusive variants of their major titles, bookplates, enamel pins, and more.

We have taken the liberty of cataloging their list of exclusive comics for you, but get ready to let those digital dollars fly as quickly as possible… because some of the more coveted issues are already starting to sell out. Locke & Key fans should expect to either be disappointed or head to eBay for their copies, which will likely be priced far higher than the originals. The other titles can be previewed here:
