Variety has reported that DC Comics has promoted Marie Javins to editor-in-chief.
The move was announced Monday by Daniel Cherry III, senior vice president and general manager of DC Comics, to whom Javins will report.
Javins will be tasked overseeing the execution of the company’s annual publishing schedule and growing all DC imprints.
This is a major public announcement regarding the restructuring fallout of the massive administrative and editorial layoff from earlier this summer.
According to the article, Javins will work closely with Jim Lee, DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer, as well as Cherry to define and cultivate the character development and creative talent decisions for all DC Comics properties in the publishing area.
From the Variety announcement, Javins had this to say regarding her appointment:
“I’m incredibly honored by this responsibility, and will dedicate myself to supporting and challenging DC’s extended family of staff, talent, retailers, and partners around the world in our quest to tell innovative visual stories that both reflect and expand our world—and in some cases, our galaxy and multiverse.”
