IDW to bring Iron Sky to Print in 2013

Kelly Cassidy 12/05/2012 Reviews

We’ve all heard the comments about Nazis in the United States, and Nazis in the United Kingdom and we shrug it off because that’s all in the past. But with the upcoming Iron Sky movie, the questions that get asked are: “What if the Nazi party survived after World War II? And what is they were hiding on the moon?”

Although the movie deals with what happens when we find out that there are Nazis living on the moon (I honestly thought I’d never write a sentence like that in my life…) IDW is working on a prequel book that will show us how they got there.

IRON SKY Graphic Novel to Invade U.S. in 2013

San Diego, CA, (December 5, 2012) – IDW Publishing, along with comic production house Hazmat Studios and film production company Blind Spot Pictures, are thrilled to present fans with the official IRON SKY movie tie-in graphic novel in March 2013. Drawn and colored by the amazing artistic team of Gerry Kissell and Amin Amat, the guys behind IDW’s best selling graphic novel Code Word: Geronimo, and Xbox’s comic game tie-in Alan Wake. The book will also be featuring original pin-up art by Miguel Angel Abad (Planet of the Apes) and Darren Douglas (Golden Compass) and chronicles the battle against the return of history’s most notoriously evil villains, the Nazis, who unbeknownst to us, escaped to the moon following their defeat in World War II.

“The graphic novel is a prequel to the hit sci-fi action film Iron Sky produced by Blind Spot Pictures, and focuses on how the Nazis ended up on the moon, and how Udo Kier’s character, Wolfgang Kortzfleisch, became Der Überführer.” Said lead artist Kissell. “Part steampunk and part comedy, the graphic novel was written masterfully by Alan Wake scribe, Mikko Rautalahti. who has a wicked sense of humor.” Kissell continued.

The book will be 104 pages, with 67 pages of comic art with an additional 33 pages of production art, behind the scenes bonus material, and other exclusive material written by the film’s director, Timo Vuorensola.

So… sounds kind of… I don’t know! But the combination of steampunk and comedy does intrigue me. To find out more about IDW, go to http://www.idwpublishing.com and for more on Hazmat Studios check out http://www.hazmat-studios.com.

But really, does this sound interesting? What are your thoughts on this book and on this movie? Let us know in the comments section!

    Movie was interesting. It feel in a hard place for me to outright recommend as I liked some elements but also thought was odd is the best way to explain. I would check out the comic though to get some more background on the movie's storyline.

    Absolutely LOVED the movie! And in the very capable hands of IDW, my favorite modern publisher, I have no doubt that this will not only be as fun as the movie but if people give it a chance and it works then maybe, just maybe, we will have the January 2014 IDW invasion event! IDW Vs. Space Nazis!!!! I LOVE IT!!!
