Marvel Comics Begins to Feel the PinchThe Dark Herald
The long expected mass executions at Marvel Comics appear to finally be getting underway.
From Bleeding Cool so please don’t click on the link.
“... this includes John Nee, the publisher of Marvel Comics who, amongst other things, brought League Of Legends and Warhammer to the comic book publisher, as reported by Comic Book. He had been placed on furlough, and it appears that all the affected staff had been previously furloughed as well. Formerly, John Nee had set up Cryptozoic Entertainment, had been a VP at DC Comics and Earner Bros, and CEO of Wildstorm when DC Comics purchased it.
The other name out there is Judy Stephens, a producer who worked on a variety of projects at the publisher. This included being producer and host of the Women Of Marvel podcast and well as the series Marvel Make Me a Hero, Marvel Becoming, Marvel Quickdraw, This Week in Marvel, The Pull List, and more. Judy posted earlier today, “Marvel, and I said goodbye today. I’m working through my emotions as I mourn my career over the last 14 years.”
Disney’s horrifying 4th quarter earnings call is just around the corner. They have to show cuts in very single department.
While I’m sorry that some of the biggest cuts will be in Imagineering, I can’t even come close to shedding a tear for the cultural vandals at Marvel.
