Fresh news from IDW Publishing, as two new editorial positions have been announced, with Sarah Gaydos and Denton Tipton receiving promotions in their editor roles! For a Transformers-related part, though, we also know that John 'Continuity' Barber is leaving his current role, and remain as a writer on the titles he has already been confirmed for, plus a third yet to be revealed book, post-Revolution. Check out the press release below!

IDW Publishing Announces Editorial Shifts and Promotions

Editors Sarah Gaydos and Denton Tipton Promoted To Group Editor and Senior Editor


San Diego, CA (July 12, 2016) – IDW Publishing has promoted two of its key editorial staff members, Sarah Gaydos and Denton Tipton. Both will continue to report to Editor-in-Chief/Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall.

Sarah has been promoted from Editor to the position of Group Editor. Sarah began her position at IDW in 2013 after six years of editing at DC/WildStorm. She has overseen the Star Trek and Disney lines to great success among other high profile titles including Cartoon Network’s Powerpuff Girls plus critically acclaimed creator-driven titles such as Satellite Falling. In her new role, she will take on various Hasbro licenses including Jem and the Holograms. She loves cats and burritos.

Denton has been promoted from Editor to the position of Senior Editor. A former journalist at the San Diego Union-Tribune as well as comics retailer, Denton joined IDW in 2008 and edits such series as X-Files, Dirk Gently, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Judge Dredd, Orphan Black, the upcoming Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me, and more exciting projects yet to be announced. He loves dogs and Night Court reruns.

As part of these editorial shifts, IDW Publishing bids a fond farewell to Group Editor John Barber who previously edited Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye, Micronauts, and Jem and the Holograms. In addition, John has contributed as a writer to such titles as Transformers, Back to the Future, and the upcoming event series, Revolution. John will remain creatively involved with IDW, writing a secret project yet-to-be-unveiled that spins out Revolution.

“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 IDW’s Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall. “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.”

Via the Toy News Magazine, we have a brief look into some market-speak from Hasbro UK & Ireland, concerning their future plans for that corner of the toy market. As expected, not much is really said at all by David Henderson, the recently appointed Country manager, but he does comment on the difference between US and UK markets, and vaguely talks about future plans; you can find extracts from the full interview - found here - below.

Reminder: Hasbro UK has already announced that it will not be participating in the London/UK Toy Fair.

Where are the areas of improvement for Hasbro in the UK and Ireland and how are you looking to tackle these?

The team has done a phenomenal job in all areas. The key for our team is to be relentlessly focused on driving our business, understanding our consumer and connecting with them across all possible touch points.

Simply put, we must not be satisfied with our current momentum and always be seeking out new opportunities to connect with our consumer.

[...]

Having moved to the UK from the US, what do you view as the key differences for Hasbro between both markets?

Simply put, there are many differences and many similarities, but that is only on the surface. I want to immerse myself in the culture, learn from my team, our retailer partners and the consumers.

I was born and raised in Canada and have lived in the USA for the past nine years. I have been fortunate to travel to and work in many countries and know that many differences exist, but the common bonds are also very strong. I can’t wait to learn more about these great countries and their people.

News from TFcon Chicago 2016 brings us a regular guest, but a guest nonetheless in the form and person of Garry Chalk, the voice of Optimus Primal from the Beast Wars / Beast Machines era in Transformers fiction. Check out more details below, and the official event site right here!

Happy 4th of July America! We are very happy to welcome Transformers voice actor Garry Chalk to TFcon Chicago 2016.

Additionally he is known to GIJOE fans as the voices of Pathfinder and Metalhead in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, and He-Fans as the voices He-Man in The New Adventures of He-Man, and Man-at-Arms in the 2002 He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Mr. Chalk will be taking part in Q&A panels and autograph sessions with the attendees of the world’s largest fan-run Transformers convention all weekend long.

After Hayato Sakamoto, another fan favourite from the Transformers comics world - though a fairly older one, in terms of presence on the scene - will also be attending the new UK convention TFNation this August in Birmingham: Nick Roche! As Sins of the Wreckers ends, expect him to be answering a lot of questions on the inevitable (right? right?) third chapter in the story.

Operation: Wreck and Roche (Warning, trousers may shatter)

While we have enjoyed the incredible responses to all our guest announcements to date, it’s fair to say that few will give both the TFNation team, and it’s attendees as much pleasure as announcing writer and artist Nick Roche’s attendance at this August’s event.

Known for his work with The Wreckers, Nick has been a TF fan since the days of the Marvel UK comics. Gaining exposure through the Transmasters community, Nick first worked on IDW’s Spotlight series, followed by Devastation, Maximum Dinobots and a notable issue of All Hail Megatron. All this, plus his numerous covers for other series, lead to the 2010 mini-series LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS (for which he snuck in his Transmaster collaborator, some guy called James Roberts) which broke hearts, shattered trousers and whose influence has been felt in IDW Transformers, ever since.

Sins of the Wreckers, the highly anticipated sequel that Nick both wrote and drew, has just concluded, providing another dark chapter of the story of the Autobots most tragic/heroic team. We look forward to hearing the authors own feelings on the characters, story and those inevitable deaths, over the course of the convention weekend.

Away from Transformers, Nick has been involved in a wide range of work, from his Monster Motors collaboration with Brian Lynch, Dr Who covers for IDW and New Warriors for Marvel comics. He also hit Marvel UK fans right in the retros by providing the artwork for the Deaths Head section of Marvels Revolutionary war. Fitting, yes? On top of that, it still blows our minds that Nick also created all the artwork for an animated music video, as well as album cover art, for the last album from Brit rockers The Darkness.

We suggest you follow Nick on social media, for details of his plans for this year, as well as his recent blog for those following SINS OF THE WRECKERS.

Nick will be signing autographs and selling artwork at TFNation 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel - we look forward to seeing you there!

A new week, a new guest for the upcoming TFNation 2016 event, the first in this incarnation, taking place next month in Birmingham, UK! And the guest joining the already impressive roster is MTMTE and Legends comics-famed artist Hayato Sakamoto - check out more info below, and get ready for some spaghetti Energon!

Operation: Guest announcement

With a flurry of new announcements waiting in the wings, TFNation moves ever closer to August by welcoming IDW artist Hayato Sakamoto to our inaugural event, on his first ever visit to the UK.

Sakamoto-sensei is best known in the West for his contributions to More Than Meets The Eye - particularly for his work in designing the fan-fave character Nickel (who so easily holds the terrifying DJD in the palm of her hand). He has also worked on recent Botcon strips on both covers and interiors.

Sakamoto-sensei’s widest body of work is mostly seen in Japan, where he has leant his talents to pack-in and tie-in comics exclusive to TakaraTomy's releases of TF toys, from Kre-O through to the current Combiner Wars line. These comics (which he often also writes) have given us some of the lighter, more humorous interpretations of the franchise in recent years, such as die-hard G1 fan Rhinox, and Sentinel Prime being depicted as a frustrated head on wheels.

He has also provided box art for a number of TakaraTomy's domestic releases of figures, and is a keen contributor to fan projects.

Sakamoto-sensei is excited to be a part of TFNation because he has heard such great things about the UK convention community (largely from his wonderful friend and fellow TFN guest, Miss Kei Zama) however, we have been asked to explain to our attendees that he is presently still learning English and thus, will need some help from time to time. Though he was a little embarrassed about this at first, we've been happy to put measures in place to ensure translators are standing by to assist guest and attendees alike. We felt this was important as we want to ensure TFNation is inclusive and reaches out to all parts of the community.

Hayato Sakamoto will be signing autographs over the weekend of Friday 19th until Sunday 21st August 2016 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel at TFNation - we look forward to seeing you there!
