A graphic novel setting up the events of the indie sci-fi comedy "Iron Sky" is being prepped at IDW and it's coming from the creative team behind the Bin Laden hunt OGN, "Code Word: Geronimo" as well as the 360 survival horror game "Alan Wake."
In a world seized by crime, a fresh-faced rookie sets out to clean up the streets. When he's inevitably strung up by roving gangs of telepathic teens, it's up to young Judge Joseph Dredd to step up. 2000 AD editor Matt Smith is writing "Judge Dredd: Year One: The Long, Hard Road" for IDW this March, accompanied by interior artist Simon Coleby and cover artist Greg Staples.
The story will bring Dredd face-to-face with a mental menace in his first team-up with the Psi-Division. Minds are certain to be blown.
Check out a variant cover and the official release after the jump.
"Shadowland" concludes and the "girls" of KISS take on the "phantom" in a pair of exclusive previews from IDW Publishing.
Joe Schreiber's horrific, "Chasing the Dead," the tale of a mother's suffering at the hands of a kidnapper is adapted by Matthew Scott, Tim Westland and Dietrich Smith for IDW and we've got an exclusive first look right here!
Since it's inception, Mega-City One has been host to every form of crime, from block wars to nuclear attack, and even the attempted genocide of the entire city at the hands of the Dark Judges. In all that time only one thing has been constant: the Judges. With the upcoming release of "Dredd 3D" this Friday, the 21st, it was about time for a top ten list counting down some of the most upstanding, and wretchedly vile Judges to ever grace the streets of the "Big Meg". Can you guess who'll be number one? Cause if you can't, then your guessing skills are seriously, seriously lacking.
This week’s comics are once again dominated by a slew of "Zero Month" issues out of DC Comics. The most anticipated? SWORD OF SORCERY #0, which brings writer Christy Marx into the DCU. Beyond raising the female writing ratio on DC books by 33% (don’t check our math on that), Marx is right in her wheelhouse with a new take on Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld. There’s also a Beowulf back-up by Tony Bedard, so yay, fantasy!
It’s week two of Zero Month, which means we officially don’t understand numbers anymore. But we do understand DC will probably dominate the market again, particularly with a strong slew of bat-books. That’s led by BATMAN #0, which will flash back to the time period around Batman: Year One, but also includes BATGIRL #0 and BATMAN AND ROBIN #0.

After a light couple of weeks, we’re finally getting a big Wednesday at the comic book store, led by potential juggernaut JUSTICE LEAGUE #12. That’s where Superman and Wonder Woman first start dating, Justice League of America gets teased, and the entire next year of Justice League. So, must buy status: engaged.
Also from DC Comics? FLASH ANNUAL #1, which brings together the Rogues, versus The Flash, versus Captain Cold; GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #1, which launches the massive “Rise of the Third Army” event; and BEFORE WATCHMEN: MINUTEMEN #3, by the incredibly talented (and as we found out this past weekend, bluntly honest) Darwyn Cooke.

Who ya gonna call for an exclusive "Ghostbusters" comic book preview? MTV Geek is pleased to present you with an exclusive sneak peek at "Ghostbusters" #11 from IDW, hitting stores on July 25:
Continuing west on their cross-country caper, the Ghostbusters head from the mouth of the Mississippi to the Chihuahuan desert, and the city of Roswell. Ray's in heaven with the proliferation of ET attractions in the UFO capital of New Mexico, but will he have time to enjoy it while the ghosts of little green men attack? Haunted America, the Ghostbusters event of the summer, continues here!
Kevin Eastman may be best known for Teenage Mutant ninja Turtles, but he's been writing and drawing other comics for years. The latest, big news item just announced at IDW's panel at SDCC 2012? LOST ANGELES, a six issue mini-series developed with Simon Bisley about a post-apocalyptic LA:
MTV Geek: We’ve read the blurb, but what’s the idea of Lost Angeles - and where did it come from?
Kevin Eastman: It started several years ago, in a brain-storming session with me and Simon Bisley--massive sessions of sharing likes and inspirations, creative mind melts, and kicking around idea's of really cool stuff we LOVE to draw! I guess that was the start--but I think when I came up with the title, Lost Angeles, I thought; "Man, there is really something to dig into here..." and after a trademark search I saw it was free and clear and I grabbed it before someone else did! Over a year or so of discussion, we developed the story and concept, banged out a bunch of character designs and kind of set it aside a bit to do other stuff--and that is when I showed it to Joe--who promply fiddled about--and came back with some very cool suggestions. Joe and I beat out a treatment, a screenplay, and now I'll adapt that with Tom and Bobby into the series! Read More...
Let me tell you a little story about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. When these pizza loving dudes were first introduced, they were written by a guy named Peter Laird, and drawn by Kevin Eastman. Then, the two split, and Eastman left the sewers forever... Or so we thought. Cut to years later, and Eastman returned to TMNT, but on writing duties this time. Eastman did panel breakdowns for the issues, but no art from the Turtle's master... Until now. As revealed at IDW's SDCC 2012 panel, we can now EXCLUSIVELY reveal that with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Annual #1, Eastman will not only write, but also draw a full, extra-sized turtle story for the first time in decades: Read More...
