We’re getting word this afternoon that a little shake-up at the DCU editorial staff has taken place. Senior Editor Bobbie Chase has been promoted to Editorial Director and current Executive Editor Eddie Berganza has been moved to a different position.
Chase is a long-time colleague of E-i-C Bob Harras, going back to their days at Marvel together. Chase was briefly E-i-C at Marvel before leaving as part of the layoffs in 2001. After leaving the comics hurly-burly, she freelanced at Disney Adventures, then served as Editorial Director for Stabenfeldt Inc., a Norwegian children’s entertainment publisher for six years. Her rising to the #2 position at the DCU certainly puts a publishing vet with a wide portfolio in the spot.
DC did not respond to inquiries for comment on this story.
