Well, lately I've seen Spaced's posts/uploads in the "Other Publishers" download section have been IDW...I confess, I'm not much of an IDW reader ever since I picked up their Transformers (Megatron) series a couple of months back...the dialogue and artwork just didn't really do it for me...Which is surprising since IDW carries a lot of very well known franchises...Star Trek, Buffy Slayer characters, Metal Gear etc...but instead of all these popular titles..I pick one must-read:
Locke & Key by Joe Hill and art by Gabriel Rodriguez

It's pretty entertaining...in fact, like an HBO PG-13 movie with its pace and packaging: family tragedy that turns into a suspense-thriller with just the right amount of "magical" mystery thrown in...It's a mini but it should be an ongoing series by now...

So,on your recommendation i started reading it & gotta say it's pretty good so far(i m on issue 3).Looking forward to the end.It's surprising that i liked it cause 99% i only read Marvel & DC & don't like other stuff.Now i think i should start reading more from different publishers.Any suggestions :)

Simple Kitty really. Just use Search, type in: Recommended Reads or just go to the "Reviews" section for more detailed overviews. I try not tot give away the plot.

Of course, you can always ask "The Pig"... He's been adding a lotta great stuff more than I can read actually...

Then there's going to my blogs below. Shameless plugging...

Just read the Angel Titles :lol:
and hey John Bryne did a lot of IDW stuff recently - Looks like he's messing around with the stuff they have licenses for.
For example Star Treck: Crew or Angel: Blood and Trenches

I second the recommendation for Welcome to Hoxford. A little dark, but very cool and moody. Would make an interesting movie...

Haven't tried any of the ST stuff but the Byrne Angel books have been way more fun than the ongoing series. Two thumbs up for those.

all the GI Joe stuff is... good. GI Joe: COBRA is GREAT... it's not heavy on the Joe mythos, it's a lot of subterfuge, under-cover stuff. It's very different from the regular Joe book.. .and it's by Christos Gage and he does these kinds of book just awesome. The art is a bit off-putting in that it isn't your standard GI Joe art... but it matches Gage's writing a lot.

There was a 4 issue mini previously. there is a 2nd 4 issue mini finishing up now (GI Joe: COBRA II) that will transition to a monthly ongoing after this arc finishes up.

I love IDW's Transformers series...all of them...though since IDW went with multiple mini series their take on the Transformers is kind of hard for someone to jump into...luckily they've changed that with Transformers Ongoing and it rocks

Yes, great stuff! Joe Hill, awesome! Need new Star Trek, more Star Trek! IDW shouldn't wait for another Trek, they should continue making comics that bridge gaps between the new Trek Universe and the old TNG one.

I have to agree. I just caught up on GI Joe, GI Joe Origins and GI Joe Cobra I & II. I was glad to get to the end of Cobra II to find out it was going to be a continuity into Cobra. Hearts & Minds I think is gonna be a good series. The next issue covers Firefly and Tripwire. Overall, I think enjoyed the Cobra series the most so far.
