Garters & Ghouls digital comic

Garters and Ghouls comic

IDW Publishing continues to forge ahead in the world of digital comics and today expand the company’s offerings with a brand new, digital-only comic. Garters & Ghouls is based on the hot action game by Namco Networks, named one of the thirty must-haves for the iPhone and iPod touch, in which players command the not-too-dead Marie Dupois as she does battle against the evil Thrum and its legion of monstrous creatures.

“We’re very excited to release the first digital comic in our partnership with Namco and Garters & Ghouls is a perfect concept to bring from games to comics,” stated Jeff Webber, Director of ePublishing at IDW. “The Namco team put so much into the game’s back-story that we have all sorts of interesting ideas to explore. And focusing specifically on an original digital comic allows us to design a storytelling format that works best on the small screen.”

The Shelter review

Shelter comic

Silence. True Silence. The actual absence of sound. It’s one of the strangest things you can ever experience. It’s….un-nerving. No car engines. No humming electricity. No planes flying overhead. No people walking their dogs. No birds chirping. No squirrels…squirrel-ing. A world cast into infinite silence.

Join us on this Zombie adventure as we get to know Violet, a young lady destine to find a safe haven from the infestation that left her alone, scared and with no where else to turn, dependant upon herself to survive. Can she make it in time or is the end of the world to tight of a deadline?!

Naughty Bear the game

Naughty Bear game

Naughty Bear is an action video game featuring a unique blend of comic mischief and shamefully bad behaviour. Players will take on the role of Naughty Bear, a bear driven to seek vengeance after the other bears don’t invite him to the big birthday party. Scorned for the last time, Naughty Bear becomes hell bent on manipulating and terrorizing the blissful bears inhabiting the Island of Perfection. Featuring an array of weapons, objects and scare tactics, gamers strive to earn Naughty Points as they inflict physical and psychological harm on Naughty Bear’s enemies. This all-new scare-based points system means players will win the most rewards for being deviant and maniacal. The variety allows for a completely new experience every time players pick up a controller and the ill-fated bears become more difficult to harass and terrorize as the game progresses.
