Thank You For Playing Games With Us At Gen Con 2018!

We had a wonderful time at Gen Con 2018! Thank you to everyone who came by to play games with us and check out the latest from IDW Games. We had a lot to share and it was great to hang out and show off what we have coming down the line. Lets take a look at some of our favorite moments!

We demoed Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham City Under Siege at the booth each day and we can’t wait for this game to land on shelves. The co-op, threat management game from Richard Launius and Michael Guigliano is coming out in late August/early September and is a fun must-have for any Batman: The Animated Series fan. Even Batman came by to test his gaming skills at the game and loved it.
