FULLY DESERVED - IDW Publishing Names Transformers Writer & Editor John Barber As Editor In Chief

We still don't know what the future of Transformers comics looks like after Unicron, but today we learned that the future of IDW looks pretty bright: The Hollywood Reporter has reported that John Barber - writer of Optimus Prime, Transformers: Robots In Disguise, and the editor who presided over IDW's most creatively successful period - will be taking the title of Editor In Chief for the entire company. More info inside!
“To me, the title of editor in chief has a resonance — and a legacy — in comics,” Barber told Heat Vision. “It's something to live up to, a position I find pretty inspiring. So I don't know if I can really express my excitement at being back at IDW in this new role. As editor in chief, I'm in a position to help guide the company into a new era, working with our creators and our partners to make the best comics out there. IDW has some of the biggest and most fun properties in pop culture under our publishing umbrella, and I think some of the stuff we already have planned for the future will spin some heads. The comics world is constantly changing, and IDW's always changed with the times — keeping its core values and looking toward tomorrow. And being right in the thick of that is just where I want to be.”

We previously sang Mr. Barber's praises when we heard he was stepping down as Transformers editor, and we stand by everything we said. He's a great choice for EiC and we fully expect more great things for the company under him. Congratulations from everyone at TFormers!
