What happens when I sit at home and play WoW all day, and forget to pick up my comics? I miss stuff like major changes in the running of the company that I buy most of my comics from. (Strategically announced on the day of the week furthest from New Comic Day? We wonder.)
This Thursday saw major upheaval in the governance of DC Comics. Until now, the company was headed up by Paul Levitz, in the position of President and Publisher. According to an announcement made on the The Source, the official DC Universe blog, Levitz is leaving the positions, and will be replaced by six people. Namely, Co-Publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio, Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, Executive VP of Sales, Marketing, and Business Development John Rood, and Executive VP of Finance and Administration Patrick Caldon. These so-called "High Five" will report directly to DC Entertainment's President, Diane Nelson.
