IDW Media Holdings has tapped Allan Grafman to lead up an internal audit committee and join the company's board of directors. Graffman was Archie Comics' President from 2002 to 2005.

"I am delighted to welcome Allan Grafman to the Board of IDW Media Holdings," said IDW Chairman/CEO Howard Jonas. "He brings deep knowledge of the industry and extensive experience and expertise in developing and monetizing strategic media assets. He will add significant value to our effort to realize IDW's full potential."

This internal audit comes two months after IDW went public with interest in the possible sale of the company (or other alternatives) to "maximize stockholder value and realize the full potential of its vast content library and pipeline."

Grafman is currently the CEO of All Media Ventures, an investment company IDW desscibes as "assisting companies to identify and seize market opportunities, grow revenue streams, and develop and license new products." Grafman previously worked at Disney/ABC, Hallmark Entertainment, Mercury Capital, and the Tribune Company.

"I am delighted to team up with IDW and Howard Jonas, who has created tremendous shareholder value across several companies," said Grafman. "IDW has a great opportunity and I will work hard with the entire IDW board and management to achieve our potential."
