Jacq Cohen Moves From Dark Horse To Fantagraphics As New Publicist

Jacq Cohen, who held the title of publicity coordinator at Dark Horse Comics in Portland is apparently moving to Fantagraphics in Seattle to join their efforts as a publicist. I learned about this here, but it looks like PW also ran a news brief yesterday that mentioned the hire. At Comic-Con International in July, Fantagraphics announced an earlier promotion of longtime publicity and marketing guru Eric Reynolds to an associate publisher position. I do know that not all of the Dark Horse talent with whom Cohen was working knew of the imminent departure, although that seems normal for something just-announced.

Eric Reynolds was nice enough to take a few second and comment on the brand-new news as much as he was able to: "Yes, Jacq Cohen has been hired. Her start date is October 1, and the hire was just finalized this week, so it's still very new and some details are still to be hammered out," he wrote CR. "Essentially, though, Jacq will become our new publicist. I will still handle certain promotional responsiblities, but Jacq will take on even more. Her hiring will allow me to focus more on bigger projects and key releases. I think all of our books and authors will be better served by having both of us around to shoulder the load. We're excited, and I know she is, too."
