John Barber - Upcoming Guest on Creators Workshop! (7/26/12)

On Thursday, July 26, 2012 at 9pm Eastern Time, the Creators Workshop will be joined by special guest John Barber!

John Barber is Senior Editor at IDW comics as well as the writer of Transformers: Robots in Disguise and other comics. He is also a former Marvel editor.

He started his career self-publishing and making webcomics before joining the Marvel Comics editorial staff in 2004.

He worked on the Ultimate line of comics at the height of their popularity, and worked on the first Dark Tower series Marvel produced in cooperation with Stephen King.

Soon after, Barber moved to the X-Men comics, where he edited the best-selling X-Force relaunch and the Wolverine line of comics, including the Eisner Award-Nominated Old Man Logan series.

He helped bring the alternative-centric Strange Tales anthology to fruition before leaving Marvel to pursue a freelance career, including writing for the X-Men: Nation X series and penning several of IDW's Transformers limited series, as well as writing and drawing the (now completed) webcomic Outside Infinity. But he was also the editor of the creator-owned hits Kick-Ass and Superior for Marvel's Icon imprint, and Turf at Image Comics.

There's still time to join us at the Creators Workshop before this session! We hope to see you there.

If you want to make comics, write or draw comics, or improve as a comics creator, you'll find like-minded friends and colleagues in our online workshops and courses. We hope to see you there!
