WarnerMedia hired hundreds of workers Monday, and one of the most successful divisions was DC Comics, an intellectual property foundation that built on other company successes.
DC’s successful line?
According to various reports published in The Hollywood Reporter, The Beat, ComicBook com and others, there are Editor-in-Chief Bob Heras, Executive Editor Mark Doyle, Vice President of Global Editorial Initiatives Bobby Chase, and Senior Story Editor Brian Cunningham. That they lost their jobs.
Doyle oversaw the successful launch of DC’s Black Label publishing initiative, and Chase spearheaded DC’s successful line of young adult graphic novels, in case you were wondering if there was a rhyme or reason for the layoffs. Editor Jim Lee was also appointed to the creative director position.
In recent months, Haras was renewed for several so-called creative U-turns to run DC’s ship and rescue longtime tyrants and abusers like Eddie Berganza and Scott Lobdell. However, in the words of the famous Archer from another company, “this is not so.”
Most of the DC Universe app employees, as well as nearly a third of DC’s editorial staff, were laid off, while DC Collectibles was completely injured. It’s not as hard to read as AT&T sending signals that they are no longer interested in DC comics. Earlier in the month, there was speculation that popular DC Universe shows like Harley Quinn, Doom Patrol, and the Titans changed the Twitter handle to remove references to the streaming service.
Fan enthusiasm for DC Fandom,
AT & T’s apathy comes amid efforts to increase fan enthusiasm for DC Fandom, a comedic comedy experience that won’t arrive for two weeks. The Suicide Squad Game-A-Service game, which inserted a finger into a monkey’s claw, was already announced. And Injustice 3 was teased prior to Fandom with numerous Watchman references not to excite almost anyone that was full of microcarriers in a deathmatch game for Night Owl.
Fandom has also promised to uncover the mysteries of AeroVersion, give fans a glimpse of the damn Snyder cut, and set up a line of empty chairs to talk about the editorial initiative, perhaps.
It is important to consider the people affected by these corporate actions such as these events. At Geek’s Den, we want to express our condolences to the people identified by AT&T at this terrible time, except Bob Harrs, and that’s what we do to him.
