Moving Titles – Darby Pop Out, Atomic Robo In

unnamed (5)

Darby Pop Publishing, a creator owned studio founded by Jeff Kline, had been publishing through IDW, who he had worked for on GI Joe and Transformers comic books, with books such as City: The Mind In The Machine, The 7th Sword and Indestructible.

But now it's off, to form a partnership with Magnetic Press for a new line of original graphic novels and new series.


The first, Side-Kicked will collect the KIckstarter funded series by Russell Brettholtz and Miguel Mendonca, about "a group of superhero sidekicks who decide it's high-time they received the respect they deserve."


But as one door closes for IDW, another one opens, as Atomic Robo, which has been published in print by Red 5 Comics for what seems like forever, has now moved to IDW in search of money, with a bit of remastering for the new hardcovers, and publishing the new Ring Of Fire series for September.
