    In an interview with 'Wizards of the Coast', readable here, Mr. Tipton indicates he's moving on from Transformer comics to work on the Dungeons & Dragons series. He'll be giving his goodbyes in Ongoing #7.

    Wow! Crazy.

    I wish him best of luck. But, I wonder who will be replacing him?

    Does he deserve some sort of special plaudits for a particular reason or just because he's not Nick Roche ?

    He's an uber nerd. ya gotta be to "retire' from Transformers for the green pastures of "D&D", lol.

    i never really read the IDW books, but he helped redeem the TF-verse after the Dreamwave era.

    for that alone, i wish to thank him and wish him all the best.

    Wasn't that Dan Taylor? Tipton didn't take over editing duties until 2008. Unless by "redeeming" you mean "greenlighting All Hail Megatron".

    That's what I was thinking. Wasn't he the driving force behind AHM??


    Despite that, I wish him the best.

    Sorry "Double-Denton" but good riddance... Under your watch more editing errors were commited than before or since.

    Yeah, not sorry to see you leave.

    Nope. Denton came on after AHM was green-lighted. You guys are forgetting the interim editor of the time.

    To those saying "good riddance", I wish I could share in your meaningless misguided malice if it would actually mean TF comics will be better without him. I've worked with a lot of people on TF stuff, and Denton is easily one of the best.

    Well I can't claim to have worked with him, but the errors were constantly there.

    His reader comments were flippant or self-serving and I'm not sure there was a bit of true passion about fan concerns. Always telling us to wait until later, when it will all make sense...

    I'm not one who hated AHM either, I just noticed as a casual reader that under Denton's reign things were looser than ever.

    Maybe we'll see a more cohesive art style among the books so that characters don't look so radically different from one book to another.

    Coincidentally, a condor with a familiar looking face took his place at IDW...
