Two Interesting Publishing Deals That Probably Shouldn’t Wait Until Next Wednesday’s Bundled Column

* ComicMix has signed some kind of development deal with IDW. I only have a press release right now -- here it is -- but it's basically a deal to publish "graphic novels, books and comics" for the various ComicMix prperties. Initial titles of interest are GrimJack: The Manx Cat Jon Sable Freelance: Ashes of Eden and Hammer of the Gods. I think that's worth noting as a sign of IDW's relative robust state as much as anything else.

* Boom! comics has put all of its nice looking kids-oriented comics under one banner to be called Boom! Kids and will be taking those to newsstands via an arrangement with longtime Archie distribution partner Kable. These are such coldly rational moves that it's hard to drum up any meaningful comment about them, beyond "Look! This happened!" I hope this means Roger Langridge sells more copies of that spiffy-looking The Muppet Show Comic Book. The other major licenses so far are Pixar's Cars and Incredibles properties.
