US publisher Dark Horse – publishers of titles such as Resident Alien by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse and This Damned Band by Paul Cornell – announced new positions for key Editorial department staff earlier this month.

Dave Marshall has taken on the role of editor in chief, Scott Allie has assumed the responsibilities of executive senior editor, and editorial coordinator Freddye Miller has added the position of editor to her title.
“Scott will refocus his efforts as executive senior editor to do what he does best: serve as one of the best editors in the business, while helping to curate and develop new content,” said Dark Horse president and publisher Mike Richardson.
Additionally, Dark Horse has also announced the hiring of Comic Book Resources guest contributor and former Candlewick Press sales assistant Cardner Clark in the position of assistant editor.
“Evolution and innovation are our constant goals at Dark Horse, and we couldn’t accomplish them without the hard work and dedication of our Editorial staff,” said Richardson. “A combination of industry experience and young, new voices is vital to our success as a company. These advances in Editorial structure personify that special combination which distinguishes both Dark Horse and the modern comics landscape as truly unique.
“Our goal is to move the art form forward, and I can think of no better candidates than our creative and enthusiastic Editorial staff to lead the charge.”
“I feel so fortunate to have built my career in comics here,” Dave Marshall told Entertainment Weekly. “One of the things that’s special about Dark Horse is the way that it supports your pursuit of your passions, no matter how diverse they may be.”
