In a world… where on that fateful day in New York, the Ghostbusters did NOT cross streams, and were thus unable to destroy Gozer or close his portal. Now, 31 days later, NYC has descended into chaos and ruin, ruled with the deliciously soft fist of… THE STAY-PUFT MARSHMALLOW MAN! Who ya gonna call to find out what happens next?! Well, that’d be writer Kelly Thompson (Jem) and artist Nelson Dániel (Judge Dredd), who team up with fan-favorite IDW Ghostbusters veteran Dan Schoening for some deviated… and devious… ghost ‘bustin’ fun!

In a world… where Optimus Prime never died! For fans of a certain age, the death of Optimus Prime in the 1986 Transformers animated movie was a harrowing experience. But what if he DIDN’T die…? We reached out to Eisner nominee Brandon Easton—no stranger to Transformers, but maybe better known for writing on the Agent Cartertelevision show—and Priscilla Tramontano—artist on Transformers: Robots In Disguise to tell the story… and you won’t believe where their tale goes!

Originally created by Chuck Dixon and Jorge Zaffino, WINTERWORLD is a story set in a future when our planet is a frozen, but not lifeless, wasteland. Enjoy this brief interview with Chuck Dixon, as he gives us a quick introduction to the world and the series.
1. How would you describe the world of Winterworld?
The world is frozen over from pole to pole in a perpetual winter that has lasted generations. The human population has crashed and now only isolated settlements and nomadic drifters are all that’s left of civilization. The story of Winterworld focuses on Scully, a trader, mercenary, and survivor, and Wynn, an orphan he takes on as a companion. Together they work, fight, and sacrifice to live another day in a land determined to kill them.

Winterworld: Frozen Fleet mini-series, can you tell us a little about that
In Frozen Fleet, Scully and Wynn come across a luxury ocean liner that’s been locked in the ice for generations. It’s inhabited by the descendants of the original crew and passengers. It offers a refuge for Wynn, Scully and their new friends. But it also offers danger as the crew of the trapped ship have grown complacent in their isolation and have no idea of the deadly threat coming across the ice for them.
