IDW's Gem-Award Triple Crown

For the third straight year, independent publisher IDW has been awarded the Gem Award for Publisher of the Year Under 5% Market Share. The annual award, presented by Diamond Comic Distributors, represents the best vendors within the industry and nominees are selected by a panel of product specialists on the basis of their overall impact on the industry.

In 2005 alone, IDW was able to relaunch the Transformers (after Dreamwave closed its doors) and breath new life into Joss Whedon's Angel property with several successful mini-series' and one-shots. In addition, three of their 2005 releases - Doomed, Smoke and Heartbreaks Meet Boilerplace - were all nominated for Eisner Awards.

“We are very proud to receive this award for the third year in a row,” said IDW's President, Robbie Robbins. “Thanks once again to Diamond and comic retailers for this honor.”
