Disney has given an award for comics to IDW Publishing, the coveted Best New Licensee Award, which, in theory, goes to a new licensee.
The Best New Licensee Award is given to a new Disney Publishing Worldwide licensee signed in the past year, who created a new format and brought new distribution into the marketplace
Starting in 2015, IDW Publishing has released Disney comics including Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Uncle Scrooge comics. This partnership has expanded to include other Disney properties including DuckTales, Tangled: The Series, and Big Hero 6: The Series.
IDW's biggest get from Disney is the Star Wars Adventures series, an all-ages comic telling new stories in the Star Wars universe.
Congrats to IDW for being Disney's Best "New" Licensee.
