DC has named Marie Javins as its editor-in-chief. Javins, along with executive editor Michele Wells, had been working in the interim editors-in-chief role since the departure of Bob Harras. Javins will report to DC’s newly-hired general manager Daniel Cherry III.
“Marie intrinsically understands the power of comics and their unique ability to entertain and empower, which makes her a perfect choice to be DC’s next editor-in-chief,” says Cherry. “In addition to her many creative talents, she’s also incredibly committed to increasing access to this amazing industry by mentoring the next generation of comic book creators and helping them find their voices. I look forward to working with her in her new role.”
