Default C. B. Cebulski the new EIC at Marvel

From the official press release:

Quote:
Marvel Entertainment, the world’s most prominent character-based entertainment company, announced today that C.B. Cebulski has been promoted to Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief effective November 17, 2017. Former Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso has mutually parted ways with the company. The announcement was made by Dan Buckley, President, Marvel Entertainment.

In his new role, Mr. Cebulski will oversee all day-to-day editorial and creative aspects of Marvel’s publishing division. This includes driving the overall editorial creative vision, shaping the larger story direction of the Marvel Comics line-up, and bringing to Marvel the world’s best and brightest writers and artists. Additionally, Mr. Cebulski will be furthering Marvel’s efforts to expand the publishing division internationally.

During his more than 15-year tenure at Marvel, Mr. Cebulski has established himself as one of the industry’s top editors, storytellers, and talent recruiters. His editorial and writing highlights include the hit comic book series, Runaways by Brian K. Vaughn and Adrian Alphona, and Marvel Fairy Tales. He is also a renowned talent recruiter, helping to sign the industry’s top talent including Skottie Young, Adi Granov, Sara Pichelli, Phil Noto, Steve McNiven and Jonathan Hickman, among others.

Over the past 6 years, Mr. Cebulski has been at the forefront of Marvel Entertainment’s global expansion, as both VP, International Development Brand Management and most recently VP, Marvel Brand Management and Development, Asia. In these roles, he has been instrumental in exploring new opportunities for Marvel in both emerging and established markets. Mr. Cebulski also paved the way for the further globalization of the Marvel Universe — overseeing groundbreaking deals with manga publisher Kodansha in Japan, webcomics platform Daum in Korea and content creator NetEase in China, bringing Marvel to Asian markets through localized stories and characters. He has also helped introduce fresh new creative styles to the company’s world-renowned Super Hero franchises across comics, animation and games through the recruitment and development of numerous international artists and writers.

C.B. CEBULSKI NAMED MARVEL COMICS EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
Stephen Gerding 2 days ago


Marvel Comics has tapped C.B. Cebulski as its new Editor-in Chief.


Cebulksi will replace Axel Alonso in the position, effective immediately. Alonso was named Editor-in-Chief in January 2011 and has overseen a number of major Marvel Comics initiatives. According to Marvel’s announcement, the decision for Alonso to vacate the position was a mutual decision between him and the publisher.

Cebulski is a 15 year veteran of Marvel, having worked in a number of roles over the years. His most current position prior to his promotion was VP, Marvel Brand Management and Development, Asia, where he was tasked with helping to further the globalization of Marvel and its properties. Cebulski is currently living in Shanghai, but will relocate to New York City in order to work directly from Marvel’s headquarters.


“C.B. is one of the most well-known, liked and respected editors and personalities in the comics industry. He has a keen understanding of the Marvel brand, and knows the importance of publishing within the larger Marvel ecosystem,” Dan Buckley, President, Marvel Entertainment said in a statement. “Marvel has set a high bar for super hero stories for over 75 years, and we believe C.B. is perfectly positioned to take Marvel Comics to new heights.”

Marvel has set a high bar for super hero stories for over 75 years, and we believe C.B. is perfectly positioned to take Marvel Comics to new heights.”


Mr. Cebulski takes the helm at Marvel Comics at a time the division continues to dominate the market. Marvel consistently leads in both market and dollar share, with Marvel comics regularly in the top 5 best-selling in the industry. Over the past five years, comics and collections sales have grown over 30% in the direct market and 60% in the book market. He is inheriting a buzzed about line-up of high-profile initiatives including Marvel Legacy, Venom’s 30th Anniversary, and Avengers No Surrender weekly series.


Additionally, Mr. Cebulski will be tasked with bringing his global perspective to his new role. He will be working closely with comics partners like Panini, NetEase, Daum and Kodansha to expand the everyday Marvel Comics experience for fans across the world.

“Spending these last 18 months in Asia, and introducing more fans here to the depth of the Marvel Universe, I’ve seen firsthand how our comics and characters constantly bring joy into people’s lives all over the world. I hope to continue capturing that creative magic here at home, and deliver inspirational and entertaining stories that are true to the classic Marvel DNA, but built with an expanding global mindset.”


Mr. Cebulski is relocating from Shanghai to New York.
I don't want to sling mud here but it sounds like Alonso was asked to step down from the role.

Marvel Comics have not been at their best for the last few years; too many "epic" events, too many reboots, too many classic characters getting sidelined. About five years ago I was buying 10 - 12 titles, now I'm down to 2.

They need to reduce the number of titles and increase the quality and (please) let some of these comics get past issue 20 before they get revamped, cancelled or rebooted!

I'm really hoping the legacy numbering they've just introduced will remain. There's nothing wrong with a comic hitting issue 600, in fact I think it's something to be proud of. In the UK, 2000AD is past 2050 (mostly weekly) issues! Marvel seem to have very little faith in their core characters, which is bizarre given the huge success of those very same characters in cinemas around the world
