Q&A with IDW's John Barber

A Q&A with IDW's new senior editor John Barber has been posted over on IDW Publishing's forum. Click here to read the full Q&A, and get a glimpse of what IDW has planned for the future of the Transformer comic universe.

Q: Andy made a conscious decision to tie up loose ends before he left. Do you think there will be threads picked up from the earlier comics like Infiltration, Escalation, Devastation or Revelation?

A: I think where there’s a story, it’ll be worth doing. But I don’t want a story that does nothing but explain something that, at this point, is now three or four years old and doesn’t have any impact on anyone today. But I point to my movie work (laughs). There’s a lot of great stuff that Simon introduced that I don’t want to lose. Not everything is going to show up in the first issues of the Ongoings, but James and I are aware of the pieces still floating around. And we’ll likely see some of those coming in later on.

All i can say is IDW is the best company ,comic wise ,and i believe they have a comic for any fan :D .That being said i wish the series called "Robot in Disguise " would have a different name since that has already been used in the franchise :G2BOT: .Also is the series going be called TF#81 or is there a title ,and what will it be ?

I listened to an interview that the Underbase had with John Barber and from what I heard, I think he'll be great as the new senior editor at IDW.
