Taking my cue from the work of Paul O’Brien and Marc-Oliver Frisch over at the comics blog The Beat, I thought it might be interesting to cover them here, as well. I also decided to follow the format they have established for similar articles covering Marvel, DC and other publishers (because IDW releases usually fall outside the top 100, they don’t typically cover those).
