IDW Publishing announced the promotion of Denton Tipton to Senior Editor and Sarah Gaydos to Group Editor. Both will continue to report to Editor-in-Chief/CCO Chris Ryall.

Tipton was promoted from Editor to Senior Editor. He has been with the company since 2008, and has edited series including X-Files, Dirk Gently, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Judge Dredd, Orphan Black, and the upcoming Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me. Tipton was previously a journalist at the San Diego Union-Tribune and a comics retailer.

Gaydos was promoted from Editor to Group Editor.  She has been with the company since 2013 and has overseen Star Trek, the Disney line of comics, Cartoon Network’s Powerpuff Girls, and Satellite Falling. In her new role she will take over various Hasbro licenses including Jem and the Holograms. Gaydos previously spent six years as an Editor at DC/Wildstorm.

As part of the editorial shifts, IDW also announced Group Editor John Barber would be moving into a new position. The statement said “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.”
