Darby Pop Publishing was founded in 2013 by multiple Emmy Award winning writer/producer Jeff Kline (TRANSFORMERS: PRIME, G.I. JOE RENEGADES, JACKIE CHAN ADVENTURES) as an outlet for high-concept, high-quality visual storytelling. Kline recruited talent from a small circle of friends — writers and artists with whom he’d worked in both live-action and animation — by asking: “Have you ever had an idea you were convinced would make a killer comic book?”
Darby Pop began as IDW’s first creator-owned imprint where 5 original series and 40+ issues/TPs have been published to date. Creators have included Eric Garcia (CITY: THE MIND IN THE MACHINE), John Raffo (THE 7TH SWORD), Scott Marder/Rob Rosell/Jack Lambert (DOBERMAN), Matthew Federman & Stephen Scaia (DEAD SQUAD), and Kline himself (INDESTRUCTIBLE). In July 2015, Darby Pop partnered with Magnetic Press and is scheduled to release a sixth series SIDE-KICKED by Russell Brettholtz in October 2015.
Comics legend Howard Chaykin, Eisner Award winner Andrew Robinson, Emmy Award winners Jose Lopez, David Hartman, and Walter Gatus, Bernard Chang, Tony Fleecs and many others have delivered cover art. And interiors have been laid out and/or drawn by a number of TRANSFORMERS series veterans (among many other talented artists) including Brandon McKinney, Kirk Van Wormer, Kevin Altieri, and Matthew Humphreys.
