IDW Publishing and Toho International have announced a new multi-year deal which will bring Godzilla and dozens of other monsters from the King of the Monsters’ movie universe to a wide selection of publications and merchandise.
Beginning in spring 2021, Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and dozens of kaiju will stomp their way across IDW’s line of comic books, graphic novels, trade collections, art books, coloring books, journals, tabletop games, and puzzles, delivering a comprehensive range of content, delivering city-stomping entertainment to young readers and adult audiences.
“We’re very excited to work with Toho to build a comprehensive array of stories and products that Godzilla fans everywhere can enjoy,” says Nachie Marsham, IDW’s publisher. “Their library of characters are quite literally titans of pop culture, and we can’t wait for people to get their hands on what we’re creating in close partnership with Toho. There will truly be something for everyone, from casual fans to people who live and breathe these amazing creatures.”
“IDW has been such a fantastic partner in bringing Godzilla characters to life through high-quality graphic storytelling, and we’re excited to take our relationship to the next level,” adds Lora Cohn, Managing Director, Toho International, Inc. “By expanding beyond comics with wide-ranging books, games and more, we’re sure that our iconic kaiju will leave monstrous marks on these products that consumers across the globe, young and old, will never forget.”
First up from IDW next year is a five issue comic book miniseries aimed at middle grade readers from writer Erik Burnham, artist Dan Schoening, and colorist Luis Antonio Delgado, which will launch in April 2021.
