Hirings, Firings: Marts, Gassere, Etc.

* Newsarama reports that Marvel Editor Mike Marts is making the move across town to become a Senior Editor at DC Comics. The article notes that Marts is the first Senior Editor hire of the Dan Didio era at DC. I think it may be worth making a historical note of the move from Marvel's standpoint, as a real strength of the initial post-bankruptcy Joe Quesada era at the publishing company was locking down a second line of editors that were trusted and liked by the creative community.

* With the new launching this evening, one would assume that former TCJ managing editor and new Tucsonite Dirk Deppey, longtime TCJ News Editor Michael Dean and perhaps even Fantagraphics/TCJ employee Kristy Valenti have all officially taken new titles with the company, if not simply new tasks.

* Jose-Louis Bocquet will edit the Aire Libre line for Dupuis.

* Newspaper comic strip force Universal Press Syndicate announced a series of internal promotions, affecting a number of longtime employees.

* Anne Gassere will become Managing Editor at the comics business news and analysis site, a position created for the one-time Capital City Distribution employee.
