IDW Publishing has announced a several of changes to its editorial department, including the departure of long-time Senior Editor John Barber. Barber will reportedly continue to write the San Diego publisher's Transformers, Action Man, Revolution, and other projects to be announced.
Denton Tipton will be promoted to fill Barber's Senior Editor position, while editor Sarah Gaydos will be promoted to Group Editor for IDW's various Hasbro titles.
“As much as we’re all sad to see John Barber leave his key editorial spot at IDW, the change does also provide the opportunity to advance Sarah and Denton in well-earned ways,” said Chris Ryall, IDW's Editor-In-Chief / Chief Creative Officer. “And it also means we’ll be seeing additional writing projects from John as well, which is another bit of good news for IDW. John is a key part of Revolution and the events that spin out of it, and he’ll continue to help steer this new direction on a couple titles we’re excited to be announcing at SDCC a little later this month.”
