Dark Horse Comics has promoted Senior Editor Dave Marshall to Editor-in-Chief, a position previously held by Scott Allie, who's been named Executive Senior Editor.
"I feel so fortunate to have built my career in comics here," Marshall told Entertainment Weekly. "One of the things that's special about Dark Horse is the way that it supports your pursuit of your passions, no matter how diverse they may be. We do so many different kinds of books. We do manga, we do original projects from all kinds of creators, we do tie-ins to major video games and films. And when you come here, it's like 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory': you pick your pleasure, and if you go into that 100 percent."
The publisher has also promoted Editorial Coordinator Freddye Miller to Editorial Coordinator/Editor and hired recent CBR contributor Cardner Clark as an Assistant Editor. This follows news earlier this month that Brendan Wright, editor of "MIND MGMT" and "Past Aways" among others, was leaving the publisher to focus on freelance editing opportunities.
Marshall has been at Dark Horse since 2004, and his editing credits include multiple "Star Wars" titles, "Usagi Yojimbo," "B.P.R.D." and "Conan." In recent years, he's edited Dark Horse's popular "Avatar: The Last Airbender" graphic novels, along with "Tomb Raider" and "Mister X: Razed."
