* IDW Publishing has announced it has signed a deal to publish a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) comic book, Joe Palooka, which will launch in stores and online in late 2012.

"This represents a huge moment for me, and is a culmination of a real team effort," said Joe Palooka creator Joe Antonacci. "To sign on with a tremendous publisher like IDW and to have the opportunity to bring Joe Palooka to comic book and MMA fans worldwide is a tremendous opportunity. We're also proud to have sponsored many UFC fighters and plan to expand our relationship with them by having UFC fighters appear in the comic book as well."

"Team Palooka is bringing a ton of fire and energy to this book and we think it'll really strike a chord with comic fans and MMA fans alike," said IDW's Chief Creative Officer and Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall.

The Joe Palooka comic series tells the story of Joe Palooka, an MMA fighter who travels the world desperately trying to clear his name while fighting to earn a spot in the legendary "Legion of Combat" fight series that features team matches between fighters representing countries such as the U.S., the U.K., Brazil, Russia, Japan, China and others.

Plans for international distribution including the creation of multi-language versions of the series are also underway.

* BOOM! Studios has announced a second printing for The Hypernaturals #2. The new priniting will feature a cover by Kris Anka.

BOOM! did not reveal the initial print run for the issue.
