NEWSARAMA - SDCC WINDING UP: IDW PANEL REPORT: "November will see the publication of a new Maze Agency miniseries by writer Mike W. Barr and artist Ariell Padilla. "

And with this news, IDW officially becomes my favorite comics publisher. (Still no official announcement of a Maze Agency trade paperback, but considering the first four or five issues featured the first professional work of superstar Adam Hughes, I wouldn't be surprised...) Sadly coincidentally, Mike W. Barr was the writer on those great issues of Batman and the Outsiders that the departed Jim Aparo drew so well.

Also in the report: new Mars stories by Mark Wheatley, following a reprint of the original, fantastic series, a book called Adventures in Oz by Eric Shanower, which probably just reprints his earlier graphic novels, but that's fine, and a 12-issue adaptation of Clive Barker's novel, The Great and Secret Show. This, and the continuing reprints, and hopefully new stories, of Grimjack and Jon Sable, Freelance.
