IDW Trademarks Micro Fun Packs, After Selling Half A Million Of Them

DSC05624

Bleeding Cool was first to tell you about a plan from IDW to distribute “micro comic fun packs” containing mini-comics and a few stickers in mainstream children’s shopping areas, such as Wal-Mart, Toys ‘R’ Us and Gamestop.

Well it seems to have worked. IDW have published My Little Pony comics that way and followed them up with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now I understand they will be adding Skylanders to the line, having sold half a million of them.

Basically, IDW have set up their own mini-direct market and selling a shit load of books. Maybe all the other publishers could join in?

Maybe, but they’ll have to call it something else. Because IDW have registered the trademark…

So they#l have to be creative. Mini Picturebook Entertainment Folders? Tiny Graphic Novelette Jolly Pockets? There must be something… any ideas?
