The comics went from ideas to production in about a week. “We don’t have a lot of red tape,” Mr. Dunbier said of IDW, a division of the IDT Internet Mobile Group. The small company is dwarfed by publishing giants like DC Comics and Marvel Entertainment. “Larger companies will investigate something for three months and have a number of meetings to decide if it was feasible.”
