IDW brings back a most unwelcome former EIC as publisher

After all the scandals that arose over a year ago under Chris Ryall's editorship, they're actually reinstating him in a higher bracket as publisher, and worse, as "chief creative officer":
In a surprise move, IDW Publishing on Monday announced the return of its former chief creative officer and editor-in-chief as the company’s new president, publisher and chief creative officer.

Chris Ryall, who left IDW in March, had joined Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment the following month with the intent of growing that company’s publishing line. In returning to IDW, he will take over as president and publisher from Greg Goldstein.
This is not bound to improve their dwindling fortunes, after all the trouble he virtually allowed when he was EIC, what with gay propaganda in their Jem & the Holograms adaptation, the Aubrey Sitterson debacle with GI Joe, misuse of the Transformers, leading to loss of the license, and goodness knows what else. They recently cancelled a Rocketeer book, and that doesn't bode well for their eroding businesses. It could well be Ryall's been brought back just to ensure their exit from the market. He may not be EIC this time round, but the whole "creative" gig is still there, and that's decidedly bad news.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
