Brendan Wright upped at Dark Horse

201210040325 Brendan Wright upped at Dark Horse
Brendan Wright has been upped to associate editor at Dark horse where he’ll work in various capacities on Conan, Creepy, Eerie, and Usagi Yojimbo and his own titles, MIND MGMT; Archie Archives; Jughead Archives; Tarzan Archives; Korak, Son of Tarzan Archives; The Curse of Dracula; Men of Steel; and several others.

What does an associate editor do? Stay busy.

“Brendan has been doing great work for years assisting on key Dark Horse books like Usagi Yojimbo, Mass Effect, and Conan. He really earned this promotion by bringing in the Eisner-nominated short story ‘The Speaker’ by Brandon Graham for Dark Horse Presents, and working with Matt Kindt on MIND MGMT, and I’m excited to work with him to grow that list of accomplishments,” said Dark Horse president Mike Richardson in a statement.

MIND MGMT creator Matt Kindt had praise for Wright as well. “There are very few editors that can be all things to all authors. But Brendan is one of the few. Every creator has a different idea about what they want in an editor and Brendan is well aware of this. I genuinely consider him to be a true collaborator. Or in my case specifically . . . a conspirator.”

    Brendan’s great–I had the pleasure of being interviewed by him a while back (http://wrightopinion.com/2010/08/19/interview-matthew-southworth/) and was really impressed by how smart and knowledgeable about comics and storytelling he was. We’ve been friends ever since, and I’m glad Dark Horse has promoted him. Now we just gotta work together on something!
