Former IDW Publishing Editor-in-Chief and Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall has returned to the company following his departure in March of this year. He's rejoined the company in the positions of President, Publisher, and Chief Creative Officer. In his time away from IDW, Ryall was part of the editorial division at Skybound Entertainment.

"Chris was a vital and valued member of the IDW team from nearly the beginning, so we are very excited that he is coming home," said Howard Jonas, Chairman, IDW Media Holdings. "We are thrilled to have him rejoin our senior team to accelerate IDW Publishing's growth and success. His creative talents and relationships within the industry are unmatched so we are confident that he will thrive in this new, expanded role. We are extremely grateful for the dedication and hard work that Greg put into the company, and I am confident that he will enjoy great success with his future endeavors."

Ryall takes over the positions of President and Publisher from Greg Goldstein, who has stepped down from the publisher. It was reported in August that attorney Lisa Bloom would represent a former female IDW employee in a sexual harassment lawsuit against Goldstein.

"IDW is where I've spent the majority of my career, and I consider the company and its employees like family so I am grateful for this amazing opportunity to return," said Ryall. "I believe that IDW has very significant opportunities to become even more valuable and important and I am excited to further expand on what I started with the company nearly 15 years ago. I am also eager to help the company celebrate its 20th year anniversary in 2019 in varied and creatively invigorating new ways."

Ryall assumes his new duties on December 10.
