Magnetic Press, Darby Pop kick off new deal with ‘Side-Kicked’

Magnetic Press has inked an imprint partnership with Darby Pop Publishing that will launch in October with the release of the first collection of Side-Kicked.

Written by Russell Brettholtz and illustrated by Miguel Mendonca, the comic centers on a group of superhero sidekicks who decide it’s time they received the respect they deserve.

Founded in 2013 by television writer/producer Jeff Kline (Transformers: Prime, G.I. Joe: Renegades), Darby Pop was IDW Publishing’s first creator-owned imprint, releasing such titles as 7th Sword, Doberman and Indestructible.

The new deal with Magnetic Press calls for Darby Pop’s books to be released under the banner of the fledgling publisher of A Glance Backward, Doomboy and Love: The Tiger.

“In the current marketplace, it’s hard to get attention for any new titles, especially those not based on pre-existing brands,” Kline said in a statement.  “But, in just their first year of existence, Magnetic Press seems to have found a recipe for connecting to a rabid fan base that both trusts their taste, and appreciates their commitment to the form.”
