IDW has announced quite a lot of upbeat news in the past couple of weeks:
The comics publisher has turned the nostalgic Artist’s Editions into an imprint.
It has joined the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund as a Corporate Member.
Sarah Gaydos, formerly of WildStorm and DC Comics, has joined IDW’s editorial team.
In her time at WildStorm and DC, Gaydos worked on such titles as Batman: Li’l Gotham, Django Unchained, Young Justice, and Smallville. Gaydos possesses the transmedia savvy that is so crucial to the success of a number of IDW’s most popular titles, such as Hasbro's Transformers and G.I. Joe, Paramount's Star Trek, and the BBC's Doctor Who. Along with working on established titles, Gaydos will develop new projects.
“We’re very pleased Sarah’s joining the team,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. “Sarah is gonna hit the ground running and work on both big, established properties as well as develop new projects, and I know that her work experience and positive attitude will benefit those titles and the company as a whole, too.”
"I'm very excited to join the IDW team! Working at WildStorm studios in La Jolla was the best comics education anyone could ask for,” said Gaydos. “I learned from some of the best editors around, and was able to run down the hall to watch top artists and production artists hard at work. I'm grateful for the time I spent there, and am absolutely looking forward to using these skills at IDW in my new position as Editor. I'm eager to work with awesome talent on exceptional titles."
It’s great to see IDW growing, and we at The Bin wish Gaydos all the best in her new role.
