IDW Publishing single-issue solicitations for June 2019

By Matthew Jackson
IDW June 2019 1

Every month, SYFY WIRE will be bringing you the solicitations for all the upcoming comic books you need to know about. Today we have IDW Publishing listings for June 2019 single-issue comics.

It's a very big month over at IDW, as the publisher kicks off summer with new series, new events, and new graphic novels. Even among all the big launches, though, the biggest news is the arrival of Usagi Yojimbo. Stan Sakai's iconic, Eisner-winning series is moving to a new home with a new first issue after years at Dark Horse Comics, and it's a big moment for IDW. 

Usagi Yojimbo isn't the only high-profile new series launch coming from IDW in June. The publisher will also be rolling out the new fantasy series Canto as well as two major franchise crossovers — Transformers/Ghostbusters and Crow: Hack/Slash — along with the new series Marilyn Manor. Plus the return of Darkwing Duck to Disney Comics, new graphic novels, and more. 

Check out everything IDW has to offer in June below.

A Letter to Jo (Top Shelf)

Joseph Sieracki (w) • Kelly Williams (a & c)
As Leonard fights on the front lines of World War II, memories of Josephine and home help keep him alive. As Josephine contends with life, family, and work in Cleveland, letters from Leonard sustain her. But official censorship forces him to leave out much of the most significant action he sees.
Finally, with the war coming to an end, Leonard is able to tell his full story. In a quietly beautiful letter to Josephine, Leonard writes of the loneliness he felt, the camaraderie he experienced, and the terrible violence he witnessed.
Now, Josephine and Leonard’s grandson Joseph Sieracki has carefully researched the battles Leonard describes and expanded the letter into a moving tale of a young man’s fears and bravery far from home. Brought to heart-wrenching life by the paintbrushes of Kelly Williams (Creepy, Eerie), A Letter to Jo is at once a tender love story and a harrowing battlefield memoir.

Marilyn Manor #1 (Black Crown)

Magdalene Visaggio (w) • Marley Zarcone (a & c)
Where were you in ‘81? When the White House goes dark for 17 days in August, the president’s spoiled daughter and her best friend Abe—who claims to be possessed by the spirit of Abe Lincoln—throw a rager at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, unearthing long dead historical figures and government secrets that are better off buried. Sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll séances, and secret passageways lead to time-bending mystical romps where past and present collide. But at what cost to Marilyn Kelleher, the world at large, and music television?
Uniting the red-hot Eisner-nominated talents of writer Magdalene Visaggio (Eternity Girl, Kim and Kim) and artist Marley Zarcone (Shade, the Changing Girl, Effigy) for the first time, MARILYN MANOR explores identity, classism, appropriation, and friendship. It’s a rollicking, neon party gone out of bounds when we need it most—set just in time for the greatest pop cultural marriage to date: MTV.
“We’ve been trying to capture the feel, the excitement, the energy of the rise of the New Romantics, of the decade that embraced excess and excitement in hugely over-the-top ways, and filled it with chaos and insanity. This is the weirdest thing I’ve ever written in the best way possible, like an apocalypse directed by John Hughes.” - Magdalene Visaggio, creator/writer
