FIRST LOOK: The Infinite Loop Gets Its First English Printing At IDW

November 21st, 2014 by Marc Comments


IDW bring the French book t English-speaking audiences…

In anticipation of Paris Comics Expo this weekend, IDW Publishing is pleased to announce they will be bringing to print The Infinite Loop, the wildly successful Kickstarter-run project, as a 6-issue miniseries starting in April 2015.

The Infinite Loop is a science-fiction series that asks the age-old question, “What would you risk for a chance at true love?” Meet Teddy, a young woman who lives in a faraway future where time traveling is a common practice and her job is to maintain the status quo by correcting time paradoxes. But when she meets Ano, “a time paradox” and the girl of her dreams, Teddy must decide between fixing the time stream or the love of her life, both of which have unique consequences.

The Infinite Loop began earlier this year as a wildly successful crowdfunded project created by the team of writer Pierrick Colinet and artist Elsa Charretier and described by Comic Book Resources’ Robot 6 as “channeling early-period Steve Rude with the page composition of George Pérez…” For the comic-book series, Elsa will be providing all-new covers. Issue 1 also features a variant cover by Stéphanie Hans.

“When Elsa showed off a sample copy of issue 1 at this October’s NYCC, everyone at IDW who saw it was desperate to bring it here. The talent and creativity abound on every page. This book is a very welcome title to our roster,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief.

“I’ve always loved American comic books, and I’ve always written that way, so having one of my book published monthly is really meaningful to me,” said co-creator and series writer, Colinet. “Especially for this story, which is so personal and important to us. And I’m glad we got to join the fantastic IDW team, who showed a true excitement towards The Infinite Loop from the beginning.”

“Having The Infinite Loop released in the US is so incredible for us,” said co-creator and series artist, Charretier. “When we started working on this story, we were on our own, just the two of us, trying to make this book happen. Crowdfunding and the huge support we received gave us the opportunity to complete it, and now IDW is allowing us to present it to a whole new audience!”

Adventure, Science-Fiction, Love, and Time Travel. What else could you would want? Don’t miss this soon-to-be international hit! For more information on this title and more follow IDW Publishing on Facebook and Twitter @IDWPublishing.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
