IDW Publishing is an American comics company that has risen as among the more notable comics publication companies in recent years. It has earned "Publisher of the Year" for three years by Diamond Comics Distributors from 2004 to 2006.

Their first mark at prominence is with the horror comic 30 Days of Night and then to other horror stories and moving on to more offbeat comics. They also delved into licensed properties where they showed their unique versatility, often going for television shows and movies that no one would have thought creating a comic out of. Licensed properties such as Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, the CSI series, 24, and Shaun of the Dead.

In 2005, IDW acquired the comics rights to Transformers, a major Hasbro property. Because of this, there was much speculation in late 2007 when it was announced that Devil's Due Publishing had not renewed its G.I. Joe comics rights. In May 2008, IDW formally announced its acquisition of the license.[1] The first G.I. Joe comic published under this imprint was G.I. Joe #0, released in October 2008.
