Former Wildstorm Executive Editor Scott Dunbier has reemerged at IDW as Special Projects Editor. CBR has the first interview:
Let’s compare what you’ll be doing at IDW to your previous job with WildStorm. How different will your job really be?
It will actually be very different. I’ll be able to focus more on the nuts and bolts of doing comics. The position that I was in at WildStorm was managerial. I definitely edited comics, I put books together, but there was only so much time I could devote to that. WildStorm is owned by DC – many of them are very nice people, but it’s a very big corporation and they definitely have a big corporation mentality. There are a lot of meetings, and a lot of fires to put out, things that can eat up a lot of time in your day.
At IDW, my job will be putting books together. I will not be running the editorial team. Chris Ryall [EiC of IDW Publishing] is in charge of the editorial department at IDW, he does a great job. Ted has told me how happy he is with Chris. That’s a position I really don’t have any interest in doing again. For the right person it’s wonderful, but I’m more interested in just doing quality comics.
Scott is a super Beat pal, and the comics world is all the better for having him back.
