Chris Ryall (born April 2) is an American comic book writer and the current Editor-in-Chief of IDW Publishing.

Ryall joined IDW in 2004 as their second Editor-In-Chief, a position he held until 2016, when he became Chief Creative Officer, and was succeeded in his EIC duties by David Hedgecock.[1] In 2017, Ryall returned to the role of Editor-In-Chief while Hedgecock became the Associate Publisher.[2] Ryall has also written numerous comic books for IDW, including the series Zombies vs. Robots, which along with other IDW original CVO: Covert Vampiric Operations, formed the basis for the 2011 crossover series Infestation.

Ryall is known for being a huge fan of ROM: Spaceknight.[3] His 2015 miniseries Onyx owed much of its inspiration to ROM: Spaceknight, even giving original ROM writer Bill Mantlo a thank you in the book. Ryall now co-writes the IDW ROM series with Christos Gage.
