In the late 50’s, Victor Gorelick, a graduate from The School of Industrial Art, was hired to work in the production department at Archie comics. In a few years, Victor moved on to become the Art Director and later an editor. By the mid 80’s Victor had been promoted to Managing Editor, where he has strived to keep Archie current and relevant to each new generation of readers. We are pleased to announce, Victor Gorelick has recently been named as Archie Comics’ new Editor-in-Chief.
Among his accomplishments, Victor also serves on the board of advisors to the Joe Kubert School of Cartooning and is always looking for new talent. Victor hired Kubert School graduate Mike Pellerito to work in the production department. Mike moved on to become an Associate editor, where he worked with Victor and soon became the Editor for Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic X and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. His hard work and dedication to his job is the reason why the decision was made to promote Mike Pellerito to the position of Managing Editor.
