Rumours Of DC Editorial Changes Circle Comics Industry

In recent weeks, David Hyde VP Publicity left DC Comics, Eddie Berganza was demoted to Group Editor from Executive Editor and Bobbie Chase was promoted to Editorial Director.

Some have seen this as Editor-In-Chief Bob Harras slowly pushing Eddie Berganza out, but nothing can be further from the truth. More reliable sources indicate the pair are as thick as thieves. Nevertheless there does seem to be some editorial reorganisation going around the company, but little being stated and announced. And gossip loves a vacuum.

A week-and-a-half ago, the hot rumour circling the industry was that Karen Berger, Executive Editor of Vertigo at DC, was being dropped or demoted by DC. And that Vertigo was being reintegrated into the rest of the DC publishing operation. I received multiple e-mails from high placed indivdual both within and without DC Comics to that effect, with Berger’s appointment editing the DCU book Dial H seen as evidence of a change. However, it appears that the sound and fury signified… well very little right now. I’m told Karen was furious at the gossip as it reached her, and DC Comics gave me the following quote;

Vertigo is alive and well and an important part of DC Entertainment’s mission.  There have been no changes to Vertigo’s structure, its team or its priority within the company.

As it stands Karen appears not to be going anywhere, at least not this year. But Eddie’s change in position does leave a gap that will probably be need filling. I’m told there are lots of meetings to this effect going on right now, and to expect an announcement shortly. Ish.
