idw 20/20 anniversary

IDW Publishing proudly celebrates its 20th anniversary beginning in January 2019 with an all-new weekly event, IDW 20/20!

Explore some of pop culture’s most iconic properties – Ghostbusters, Jem and the Holograms, My Little Pony, Star TrekTM, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – as secrets and startling revelations of these fan-favorite characters are revealed from 20 years into the future — or past! What made them into the heroes you love, and what twists does the future hold?

"An anniversary like the one IDW is celebrating is a cause to look to the future and the past,” says IDW Editor-in-Chief John Barber. “It gives us a moment to reflect on where came from and where we’re going, because both directions are pretty exciting. We’re lucky to have partners like Hasbro, Nickelodeon, CBS Consumer Products, and Sony to share in the celebration — and to have these five sets of characters that have helped place IDW at the center of the pop culture universe!”
