Official Press Release
It might just be that Valentine’s Day is around the corner, but love is certainly in the air at Silent Devil these days. A shift in
staffing brings more solidarity to the ever growing family of Silent Devil Productions.
Melanie Barnes has moved into the new position of Director of Public Relations while maintaining Assistant Editor on special projects. Christian Beranek focuses full time on the role of Publisher as he expands his free-lance writing career. Thomas Mauer is stepping in as Production Coordinator while continuing with his extensive lettering credits. Lauren Perry has taken on the position of Editor-In-Chief, moving up from Executive Editor, but also keeping her role as Fairy Godmother.
Melanie Barnes – Director of Public Relations “I’ve been a fan of comics since I first learned to read. Lauren Perry and Silent Devil offered me an opportunity to be an Assistant Editor. Through working with Lauren and Silent Devil I’ve found a family of talented, hard working, and all around fun people. I am thrilled at the opportunity to grow with this wonderful crew, and to help Silent Devil develop a future by taking on the roll of Director of Public Relations. The vision and dedication to creator rights makes this an extra special place to contribute. I also love and respect the atmosphere of teamwork that CB and everyone at Silent Devil has helped to foster.”
Christian Beranek – Publisher “It was a tough decision for me to hand over the Editor-In-Chief reigns. I’ve been doing this for so long I feel like it’s a part of me. But due to my current freelance writing and editing duties I realized I needed to bring someone on board that is capable, but also believes in the spirit of Silent Devil. I couldn’t think of a better person than Lauren Perry.”
Thomas Mauer – Production Coordinator “Over the past year, Silent Devil and especially CB and Lauren have been nothing but good to me. Taking this position is a welcome opportunity for me and a Thank You to the Silent Devil family at the same time.”
Lauren Perry – Editor-In-Chief “I am so honored and so grateful to be a part of the Silent Devil family, and to be given this opportunity to nurture the independent spirit of the company while Christian works on pursuing his ever- growing writing career. Keep your eyes peeled, because you’re going to be hearing a lot more from the very passionate Christian Beranek in the coming years. Silent Devil holds a very special place in my heart, and I will do everything in my power to always stay true to foundation and vision that makes it so unique. I’ve also had the privilege of working with both Melanie Barnes and Thomas Mauer on projects in the past, and I can’t think of two more qualified and or talented people to join our already strong team.”
