Publisher Acquires Rights To Produce Artist Collective Material

Official Press Release

San Diego, CA (October 11, 2013) – The artist collective known as 44FLOOD has, in its short history, acquired a reputation for producing exemplary art books. Today, IDW Publishing has announced that going forward, 44FLOOD books will be joining the IDW family!

Based in Chicago, 44FLOOD was formed by Kasra Ghanbari, Ben Templesmith, and menton3. Together, 44FLOOD has produced the multi-media, star-studded anthology TOME, which was followed up with the supplemental hardcover collection EXPLICTUS EST LIBER, and the goal-smashing Kickstarter project LUST by Steve Niles, Ben Templesmith, and menton3.

Beginning immediately 44FLOOD will join IDW, who will publish many of the collective’s upcoming projects. “We’re proud and excited to be partnering with IDW Publishing to co-develop and distribute a number of our diverse projects,” said Kasra Ghanbari, CEO of 44FLOOD. “As creators, we’ve had a long relationship with IDW and have always admired their development of fantastic, original comic book series, as well as beautifully conceived art books. IDW is uniquely suited to work with us in commercializing the arts-driven projects we’ve developed and continue to create.”

“Obviously, we’ve known Menton, Kasra

and Ben for a long time, and we’ve worked on great projects together already,” said Ted Adams, CEO & Publisher of IDW. “But it was obvious right away that with 44FLOOD, they were all taking it to the next level. These are artists at the top of their game, and we’re thrilled to be taking on their new material.”
