More bad news for IDW

According to various news reports, IDW lost $800,000 in Q4, and $5.2M for 2019. Worse, they're not expecting to be profitable for 2020, either. They promise a return to profitability in 2021.Here's the story from ICv2.From the story above it appears that IDW operates in the $20M range, so $5M probably hurts! (For Disney, it would be pocket change.) I'm no…See More

Cap, a slight correction to your "Reprint Wishes" in CBG #1680. It was the Armorines that wore "Iron Man-type armor." The bodies of the H.A.R.D. Corps members were implanted with technology that would allow them to utilize one Harbinger power (such as strength or invulnerability) at a time. H.A.R.D. Corps #4 was my first Valiant book.

Thank you Captain. I hope to be on your site for many years to come. I hope I can gleen as much information from your site about 1980s comics and politically incorrect ones. Thanks for having me.

Hey Captain, Someone named Ann who joined just two hours ago has tried to "friend" me, and wants to form a long term relationship with me! Lucky me! Can we investigate & ban this come-on? Thanks.
