John Barber

John Barber is the former Senior Editor at IDW Publishing and is currently the writer of Optimus Prime and Revolutionaries, and co-writer (with Bob Gale) of the Back to the Future comic book. He’s written many Transformers series at IDW Publishing, such as “Combiner Wars,” “Dark Cybertron,” and “Titans Return.” Barber has worked alongside artist Tom Scioli on the epic crossover, Transformers vs. G.I. Joe, and also with Cullen Bunn and Fico Ossio on the universe-hanging Revolution, which set the new status quo for the Hasbro characters within comics.

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.
