Former Marvel Editor John Barber Joins IDW

Posted by at 6:47 pm on July 16, 2011

Recently, IDW Publishing announced that former Marvel comics editor and creator John Barber has joined the company as a senior editor. He will primarily head the company’s Hasbro titles. A smart move by IDW as his previous movie adaptation of Transformers: Dark of the Moon became a New York Times best-seller. Barber will still be able to express his creativity for IDW as a writer penning the upcoming Transformers #125 with James Roberts and another title to be announced at Comic-Con next week.

“John is a great addition to IDW’s editorial team.I’ve been impressed not only by the books he helmed at Marvel, but also by the projects he’s worked on since then, such as Kick-Ass and Turf. Add to that the fact that he was already part of our developing Transformers writing team and you have a pretty perfect fit on all counts.”
– Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Office/Editor-in-Chief.
