IDW delivers Halloween scares with Alan Robert’s Crawl To Me

October 31st, 2012 by Marc Comments

The Second Official IDW Limited Release is an award winning, Creator-Owned title that is headed to the big screen

IDW Limited ( is pleased to announce a special new limited edition hardcover of Alan Robert’s Crawl To Me. From rock star to all-star comic creator, Life of Agony’s Alan Robert brings intensity and electricity to everything he does. This critically acclaimed, award-winning mini-series will be presented in a custom case and cover, with hand-drawn artwork by the book’s creator and artist. Presented in the multi-tiered IDW Limited fashion, fans will be able to select the level of original artwork and casing they’d like to purchase according to their budget and desire.

“To witness this little story develop into what it’s become is quite mind-blowing to me,” Says Robert. “It’s true horror in the sense that it’s meant to scare the reader to the core. Not just visually, but emotionally, too. Edgar is as terrifying as villains get and not just because of the vulgarities we actually see on the page, but more so, because of what’s implied in between the panels.”

Crawl To Me is both written and illustrated by Robert, with a beautifully painted dust jacket by artist menton3 of Monocyte fame. It’s part psychological thriller and part haunted house story. Ain’t it Cool News praised it as being “Gorgeous and terrifying,” while Fangoria raved, “Readers will be blown away by the story and art of this psychological thriller.” Crawl To Me was awarded Best Mini-Series of the Year by and Hollywood is already taking notice. Crawl To Me is currently in development to become a live-action feature film, with a screenplay penned by screenwriters T.J Cimfel and David White.

“Alan’s like no one we’ve ever seen. Incredibly talented, incredibly motivated.” Says Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall. “He comes in with these amazing, really dark, really twisted ideas. And you’re thinking, there’s no way a story like that can be pulled off in such a tight page count, and then the pages get here, and they’re complete home runs. Any series from Alan is a thrill.”

Just in time for Halloween, fans will be able to pick up this haunting tale that’s equal parts trick and treat. Alan Robert is a man of many talents, and they are fully on display in the pages of Crawl To Me. The book is available for pre-order immediately on with a ship date of mid-November.

ALAN ROBERT’S CRAWL TO ME DELUXE LIMITED EDITION (RED-$100.00/BLACK-$250.00; 128 pages; 7.5” x 11”; hardcover) is now available for pre-order

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….
