Marvel Continues To Outsource Comics To IDW

At this rate, Marvel might be nothing but a movie studio!

Source: Press Release

Marvel Comics is continuing their approach of "let other people do the work" when it comes to comics. The Disney-owned company has been releasing Disney comics through Dark Horse and Star Wars comics through IDW for some time now. Showing their ultimate goal of just being a movie studio, Marvel and IDW announced that the two companies will "develop middle-grade comic books designed for younger readers."

In an EXXXCLUSIVE statement, Marvel Editor-In-Chief Akira Yoshida told The Outhouse, "It's so much cheaper to farm these comics out to other publishers. We're actually saving money. I don't know why we didn't think of this sooner."

In another EXXXCLUSIVE statement, IDW President and self-appointed Publisher Greg Goldstein told The Outhouse, "I'm so happy to be working on these characters. Fingers crossed a book with IDW on the spine sells over 15,000 copies. I joke. Even Marvel would be happy with those numbers today.”

Launching in November 2018, the comics and graphic novels will feature such high-profile series as Spider-Man, the Avengers, and Black Panther. Each title will attempt to serve as a jumping on point for younger readers.
