Comings and Goings: Abernathy, Lee and more

Time for some people on the move in comics! It wasn’t just David Steinberger over the last week or so.


§ DC Comics handed out a bunch of promotions including Ben Abernathy being promoted to Executive Editor from Group Editor, where he worked on the Batman group. Abernathy has a long history working at DC, but also put in time at Marvel and Madefire, and I’m sure this is a popular move internally and with freelancers.

In addition, Andrew Marino and Marquis Draper were also promoted – Marino to Editor and Draper to Associate editor. Relevant tweets:
