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.”

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.
