COVER SHOTS: The Best From IDW Publishing's November 2011 Solicitations

Incase you haven't recognised, IDW is no longer the little indie that could. In November 2011 alone they collect Mike Grell's 90's hit Shaman's Tears, start and finish the spycraft mini-series Jack Avarice IS The Courier (all in one month) and handle more licensed properties then you can shake a reborn universe at. Of all their November covers, these four top the pops;

COVER OF THE MONTH: DAN SCHOENING, NICK RUNGE - GHOSTBUSTERS #3 Even God loves a homage done good and when it comes to rock music, few are closer to God than the group this cover salutes. If you're unsure as to what legend this cover nods towards, hang your head in shame.

CLOSE CONTENDERS: Robert Atkins - Snake Eyes #7, Tim Truman - Hawken #1 (of 6), and Fuso - Cobra #7. For more IDW November news, click the jump.

  1. I didn't know there was a ghostbusters comic but I (Smug) recognise the homage to one of all time favorite UK bands. :p

  2. Love me some Ghostbusters and you can't go wrong with a certain classic rock super group. Put the two together and it's a kind of magic.

  4. Ha! Thanks guys! I didn't even think of dropping a pun like that into the post - and considering one of their song titles sounds like the best comic book villianess that never was, well maybe it's me that should be hanging my head in shame!
