Massive layoffs hit DC Comics


As WarnerMedia begins tossing people left and right, Warners property DC Comics has been hit hard.

While not official, sources tell multiple media outlets that roughly a third of the comics editorial group is being let go including Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras, Black Label executive editor Mark Doyle, Brian Cunningham and Andy Khouri. While Jim Lee will stay with the company, it's been said that he will no longer serve as Publisher or Chief Creative Officer.

Bleeding Cool is reporting that a reduction of monthly titles will happen almost immediately.

A majority of the DC Universe streaming service staff is also being let go, a move that was expected after HBO Max launched and began streaming DCU's programs.

DC Direct, the companies in-house merchandise and collectable manufacturer is also shutting down. Merchanise will most likely be licensed out to other companies.
