Formerly Director of Publicity at Oni, Melissa Meszaros, Asks For Help

Until a few days ago, Melissa Meszaros was Director of Publicity at Oni Press, after joining the Portland-based publisher two years ago as a Marketing Assistant, after serving as a PR Manager at Dark Horse Comics. Her previous employment including more PR work and stints as an advertising copywriter.
