    I guess this means more if your a comic store owner rather then a customer

    Awesome. I've actually been rather pleased with the current ongoing, Bumblebee, and LSOW stories they've been putting out.

    The ongoing GI Joe and the GI Joe Cobra series are pretty good too.

    Congrats to IDW, keep up the good work!

    Short-term, benefits IDW. Long-term, it can benefit us.

    IDW receives an exclusive section up at the front of previews and their website that gets them more exposure. More exposure can lead to an increase in sales. Increase in sales, especially in the Transformers brand, can create more oppurtunities for TF comics...whether it be increased number of releases, the ability to sign additional or renowned writers, ect.

    For them to come from basicly nowhere to here in such short time is most impressive. Now they're no longer "one of those independant companies with a few licencing agreements" but they've become one of the top 5 publishers.

    With the rights to the buffy-verse too, it means good things for their future prospects. As well as the freedom to launch new titles as well.

    This IS big news, congrats to all at IDW.

    They only have Angel, Dark Horse has Buffy itself and that sells 4 times as many copies as anything that IDW publishes.
