IDW has announced an 'extended partnership' with horror writer Clive Barker.  Under the agreement, Barker will create new properties for and license existing works to IDW.  The first product under the new deal will launch in January 2006. 


Barker cited The Great and Secret Show, a novel that will be adapted under the agreement, as a project he is 'most looking forward to.'


IDW has previously published a comic adaptation of Barker's children's book, The Thief of Always (see 'IDW to Adapt Barker Children's Story').
