Hey! Marvel Wants To Restructure Too! Chris Allo Gone, C.B. Cebulski Back, New Candidate Sought

CB Cebulski shows off his talent liason skills...

For the last few years, Chris Allo was Marvel’s Editorial Talent Co-Ordinator. I understand that, for unknown (to me, at least) reasons, he is suddenly no longer with the company. I do know however that it is not related to the Marvel/Disney buyout.

Caught on the fly, and losing an employee who had a one-to-one relationship with several of Marvel’s pencillers, inkers, colourists and letterers, working with every editorial department, Marvel’s famed talent management department has had to turn on a sixpence.

I understand that Marvel’s Managing Editor David Bogart will restructure the department as a result, but has been having some trouble stemming the confusion amongst people who dealt with Chris on a day to day basis.

As of yesterday, Marvel have asked C.B. Cebulski, who already works with Marvel on a consultancy basis scouting for art talent, to step up to Marvel full-time and assume many of Chris Allo’s job responsibilties in addition to his own current talent management duties, while Marvel search for a permanent replacement. C.B. already has considerable weight with talent and editorial, and will keep scouting artists as part of the new job. He will however have to put his comics writing career on hold.

So I guess, if you’re of a mangerial bent, familiar with the comics industry and those who work in it, you might like to send in a resume… after all, C.B. has X-Men pitches he wants to get back to…
