Bat Editor Janelle Asselin Quits DC For Disney (UPDATE)

Bleeding Cool understand that Batbooks editor Janelle Asselin has handed in her notice at DC Comics. And on learning that she was leaving for Disney, suddenly didn’t have to serve her notice any more and was escorted out of the building.

Working principly on the Batbooks at DC Comics since 2008,  Janelle was listed as Editor of Birds Of Prey #1 and Savage Hawkman #1, and Associate Editor on Detective Comics #1, Batwoman #1, Batman #1, Blackhawks #1 and the upcoming Batman Inc as part of the DC New 52 Relaunch.

She has also built quite the fan following on Twitter where she posts as @gimpnelly.

I understand she will be working at Disney Magazines. It’s possible there may be some Marvel content in there…

Neither DC nor Janelle chose to comment.

UPDATE: Not a confirmation, per se, but Janelle has tweeted “Thanks for all the love, guys! I really appreciate it!” She also tweeted “Seriously, though, for the record, I wasn’t escorted out today. I left today, but at my leisure.”
