(AP) PHILADELPHIA - DC Entertainment says Shelly Bond is the new executive editor at its Vertigo imprint, taking over from her predecessor, senior vice president Karen Berger.
Bond has been with the edgy and popular imprint that has published "Sandman," "DMZ" and "Fables," among other titles since 1993, working with Berger said earlier this month she was stepping down after nearly 20 years.
During Berger’s tenure, the imprint produced numerous titles beyond the traditional superhero and villain archetype.
The publisher said Wednesday that Will Dennis was promoted to group editor at Vertigo and Mark Doyle was promoted to editor.
In a statement Berger lauded the trio, noting they’d worked with a who’s who of writers and artists in recent years, from Bill Willingham to Becky Cloonan to Neil Gaiman.
