Terminator: Salvation Movie Prequel #1
Somehow IDW keeps flying under the radar.  They put out some really good comics.  And they also have some really good licenses.  Not only do they have Star Trek and Transformers, they also have Terminator (all have movies this year).  I did enjoy the Terminator 2: Infinity series (how could you not with Uncle Bob the Terminator?).

This month they'll be putting out the Terminator: Salvation Movie Prequel, written by Dara Naraghi with art by Alan Robinson and cover by Nick Runge.

The year is 2018. With John Connor as the voice of the resistance, the scattered remnants of humanity find themselves united against their common enemy: Skynet and its Terminators. Through a patchwork system of radio transmitters, hacked satellite phones, and encrypted computer networks, resistance leader Elena Maric in Detroit, and Nigerian mining engineer Bem Aworuwa, have formed an unlikely friendship and drawn up battle plans to take the fight to the Terminators!

Like the film they tie-in to, IDW’s Terminator comics will push the timeline of the franchise past Judgment Day and into all new territory, allowing for stories and visuals previously only hinted at on film. The series will take the core concept of the Terminator films and give them a more global scope showing not just John Connor, but other humans who are either trying to survive or are actively part of the resistance.  Writer Dara Naraghi says he was interested in exploring new themes—not just the action of a monumental battles, but also the game of basic survival the characters find themselves facing in such a war torn and desolate future.

“All over the world, people find themselves having to band together regardless of what their previous station in life or prejudices might have been,” Naraghi explained.

The issue just came out today...it's not really news which is why it was in the preview section and not the News.  A lot of people don't (for some reason) keep up with IDW titles.

Please you know I do! And know which one I keep up with no matter what!!

But yeah its a pretty darn good company, most of their titles sell well. They have good writers (Simon Furman for example). Yet they don't get that much pub noticably.

I do what I can.  Mention them when they send the press releases.  Get their issues added to the new comics tab.  I think more people should check them out.

I've yet to try IDW, DC and marvel are taking too much of my money lol

DC and Marvel do a great job but there are other good titles out there.  I imagine it's hard to try out something new when there's so much out there.  No one wants to throw their money away.
