While DC Comics moved from its original home of New York City to Burbank, California earlier this year, the Big Apple is set to gain another comic book publisher -- Mt. Laurel, New Jersey-based Dynamite Entertainment, which announced Monday plans to expand its offices to NYC. Dynamite has stated the office will first host current employees local to the are, with the goal of "growing the business with additional hires in the metropolitan area."
"This is a huge step for Dynamite, opening a new office and expanding our operations," Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci said in a press release. "We're now closer to our partners and closer to the creative community. It's a very exciting time to be a part of Dynamite."
The new office will be in the Flatiron District of Manhattan, at 27th Street and 5th Avenue, near multiple other publishing groups. Dynamite Entertainment was founded in 2004 as the publishing branch of collectibles distributor Dynamic Forces; also on Monday the company announced Warren Ellis as the writer of the upcoming "James Bond 007" series; new Garth Ennis-written series "A Train Called Love;" and a publishing deal with video game producer Atari.
