IDW has signed a deal with Anima animation studio in Latin America, with operations based in Mexico City, Madrid, Canary Islands and Buenos Aires. Under the partnership, the collaborators will develop and produce an adult animated series based on IDW Publishing’s Brutal Nature comic books.
IDW Entertainment EVP Paul Davidson said, “We’ve always been big fans of what Ánima has been doing in the animation space, so we are thrilled with their passion for partnering on Brutal Nature. Their sensibilities will truly expand the amazing world that Luciano Saracino and Ariel Olivetti created.”
Ánima COO José C. García de Letona said, “Working with IDW to develop such a unique project is really exciting. Brutal Nature will help us keep building up high quality stories with a Latin sensibility that can be enjoyed all over the world and we can’t think of a better partner to achieve it.”
Created by Saracino and Olivetti and produced by Fernando De Fuentes S. and José C. García de Letona, alongside the IDW team, Brutal Nature is about a collection of masks that transforms a young man into innumerable beasts and monsters.
