Updating our coverage of Transformers vs. The Terminator, Transformers (2019) and My Little Pony / Transformers home IDW Publishing, several recent furloughs of long-term employees unfortunately became layoffs for Managing Editor Denton Tipton, Associate Publisher David Hedgecock, Senior Graphic Artist Gilberto Lazcano, Senior Graphic Designer Christa Miesner and Brand & Marketing Manager Spencer Reeve.
In April, IDW made the difficult decision to furlough several valued staff members, and two weeks ago, IDW welcomed several of those staffers back full-time. However, as we continue to adapt and deal with these challenging times, we have been forced to lay-off some of our longtime co-workers and friends. Although tough decisions like this are an unfortunate business reality and there is never a good time for them, these changes are necessary to ensure the long-term health of the company.
We wish the best to these creators and urge everyone to stay safe while finding ways to continue supporting your favorite comics creators.
