IDW ISSUE #5
Topps and IDW headed to the WEST COAST for their fifth and final issue titled GO HOLLYWOOD - a collection of stories from the big screen!!
As they say in movies..."that's a wrap!" The Go Hollywood comic book from IDW Publishing was the final Garbage Pail Kids Comic to hit the shelves, and sadly, I'm not sure they will be missed.
This page provides a comprehensive look at Garbage Pail Kids Issue 5 from advertising all the way to production. You can even flip through the entire comic book right here at geepeekay! Enjoy!
RELEASE DATE: August 2015
FEATURED ARTISTS: Bob Fingerman, John Cebollero, Jeff Zapata, Pat Barrett, Brian Winkeler, Eric Sandhop, Sam Keith, Chris Ryall
PROMO MATERIAL & ADVERTISING
From the IDW Website:
Everyone’s a critic! Join the Garbage Pail Kids as they put the spotlight on summer’s top GROSSing movies!
The final book from IDW barely got a whisper when it comes to promotion. Nothing from Topps...nothing on social networking...and barely a blip on the IDW website. Combine this lackluster effort in hyping up the issue with a group of 'non-GPK' artists, and the response was pretty much a gigantic 'meh'.
As is typical with comic book releases, Topps and IDW decided to create a number of different cover variations for collectors to buy. In the end a total of FOUR variations were released, with Mark Pingitore's Adam Bomb artwork featured on the standard issue.

The Deluxe Edition was the only one of the three different covers to come sealed in a bag. The reason for this is because it includes a Bonus Card Methane MAX (below). This card (drawn by Brent Engstrom) not only comes in the typical WHITE border, but has also be found with a rare BLACK border and an even MORE rare YELLOW and RED borders! Are there any colors left to find?!
