DC Entertainment hires new director of publicity

DC Entertainment has hired Michael Shelling as director of publicity for publishing, a position left vacant since February, when Alex Segura returned to Archie Comics.

As Newsarama noted, no official announcement has been made, but Shelling revealed on his Facebook page that he's already working in the publisher's offices in Burbank, California.

Shelling was most recently public relations manager of Carbine Studios, the Aliso Viejo, California-based division of NCsoft devoted to developing massively multiplayer online games. He previously worked at Sony Online Entertainment, which developed DC Universe Online, among numerous other titles.

DC is expected to complete its move from 1700 Broadway in New York City to 2900 W. Alameda Ave. in Burbank in the spring, with editorial operations joining the film, digital, consumer-products and administrative operations. In 2011, the company signed a 10-year lease for the entire second floor, which amounts to 35,000 square feet of space.
