IDW Publishing welcomes you to enjoy “Comic-Con@Home” with a series of eight wildly insightful creator panels, plus convention exclusive comic variants and signed bookplate edition graphic novels!

Just because San Diego Comic-Con isn’t taking place “on the ground” this year, that doesn’t mean that fans have to miss the mind-blowing fun of attending panels, hunting down hot collectibles, or getting autographs from your favorite writers and artists! This week, IDW Publishing welcomes you to enjoy “Comic-Con@Home” with a series of eight wildly insightful creator panels, plus convention exclusive comic variants and signed bookplate edition graphic novels!

“While we’ll miss seeing the enthusiasm of fans face-to-face this year, we’re thrilled to be able to connect with each and every one of you through some truly engaging panels,” says Chris Ryall, IDW’s President, Publisher, and CCO. “We’re excited and grateful to have so many exceptional creative talents participating!”

· IDW Presents: G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes with Rob Liefeld

· The Science of Back to the Future

· IDW Presents: Draw a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle!

Also, for those fans eager to get their hands on autographs from their favorite creators, IDW has created bookplate editions for a selection of nearly 30 graphic novels and hardcovers (Johnny BooLocke & KeyTMNT, Artist’s Editions, and more). The signing creators include David M. Booher, Drew Zucker, Hannah Templer, James Kochalka, Jarod Roselló, Joe Hill, Kevin Eastman, Sam Maggs, Stan Sakai, and Walter Simonson.
