Marvel Makes Paniccia Senior Editor

Marvel Comics announced late afternoon yesterday that it has made Mark Paniccia a Senior Editor with the comics line. The hire is noteworthy because Paniccia's last major stop was with Tokyopop, where he worked on new talent development, something Marvel intends to have him do with their company. The press release on the hire also essentially states that Marvel is returning to making work that will be initially published in graphic novel/tradepaperback form.

What impact this all has will have more to do with follow-through than any initial plans, but the potential intentions at work here are very worth pointing out.

Thanks to Matt Brady at Newsarama for correcting my original timeline.
