IDW Publishing has temporarily closed its San Diego Comic Art Gallery as part of broad changes to the two-year-old gallery. Founding gallery manager TJ Shevlin exited the company earlier this month, and IDW removed the retail storefront component of the gallery.  A source familiar with the situation calls it a "transitional period" for the gallery.

IDW's San Diego Comic Art Gallery first opened in June 2015, coinciding with the company's move to its new headwarters at Liberty Station's former Navy Barracks. In its two years, it hosted numerous exhibits with the work of Kevin Eastman, Howard Chaykin, and Ben Templesmith, and fostered local community events as well as tie-in events concurrent with Comic-Con International: San Diego.

IDW anticipates re-opening the gallery sometime in February 2018.
