“With over 700 pages already complete… I guess retailers don’t have to worry about late comics for about 3 years,” joked Sava. “Seriously, though, bringing All Ages titles to comic retailers is something we all should be pursuing vigorously. I’m so proud that IDW is taking this to heart and helping bring back some of that good old fashioned ADVENTURE back into comic shops.”
Earlier in 2008, IDW announced that Christian Scott Sava’s Blue Dream Studios would become an imprint of IDW Publishing. Awarded Best Graphic Novel of 2007 in CBR’s 25th Annual Fan Award reader, The Dreamland Chronicles is the first of the titles from Blue Dream Studios to be published.
