Highlights of IDW Publishing releases this week include the first chapter of the new Edward Scissorhands story arc, “Whole Again,” the Cerebus: High Society DVD collectors’ set, lots of Transformers, and Milt Gross’ lost graphic novel, New York.

Cerebus: High Society Digital Audio/Visual Experience—SPOTLIGHT
Dave Sim (w & a) • Sim & Gerhard (c)
It’s Cerebus brought to life (again) by creator Dave Sim! Sim’s masterwork Cerebus ran for 300 issues. Starting with issue #25, Cerebus got a taste of High Society, a storyline that concluded with issue #50, and which critics and readers alike recognize as the point at which Cerebus became a vehicle for political commentary. This DVD set contains the entire DIGITAL AUDIO/VISUAL EXPERIENCE of High Society  presented in multi-media format, with Dave Sim reading  every issue in character… including music and sound effects. Along with each issue’s presentation is a section of full Editorial Comments, also read and “performed” by Sim. Originally brought to life through the magic of Kickstarter, the HIGH SOCIETY  DIGITAL AUDIO/VISUAL EXPERIENCE is ready for the Cerebus fan in your life.
