SAN DIEGO, CA – Oct. 26, 2016 – In a recent article from Fast Company, IDW Media Holdings (OTC: IDWM) is highlighted in an in-depth interview with CEO and Publisher Ted Adams, tracking the journey which led to it becoming a highly successful multimedia company.
“What makes us unique is we’re the only public multimedia entertainment company outside of the behemoths, like the Warner Bros. and Disneys of the world,” says Adams. “Each of our divisions—publishing, board games, entertainment—feed each other’s success. There’s no microcap or midcap companies that are doing what we’re doing.”
IDW is one of the fastest growing publishers in comics and that success has allowed the company to grow in many areas including a thriving board game division, an art gallery celebrating comic art, and most recently an entertainment branch that has led to the popular Syfy series Wynonna Earp and BBC America’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, which debuts Oct. 22 and stars Elijah Wood and Samuel Barnett in the title role.
In addition to the current projects, the piece also dives into the various TV and film properties that IDW Entertainment has in development such as the animated Wormwood, voiced by George Lopez from a comic by Ben Templesmith, and live-action dramas Locke & Key, based on the graphic novel series created by Joe Hill, who is also writing the pilot; the Michael Chiklis vehicle, Pantheon, based on a comic he created; and Winterworld, from a Chuck Dixon comic.
