Congratulations to Alex Segura. The Beat has obtained verbal confirmation of Alex’s promotion to Co-President of Archie Comics.
Alex was previously doing double duty as SVP of Publicity & Marketing and editing the Dark Circle line (including the criminally under-appreciated Black Hood series – you should go have a look).
And he’s co-writing The Archies series that just debuted, after having written a series of music-related specials and mini’s over the years, like Archie Meets KISS.
And he’s a novelist with a series of mysteries when he’s not busy with Archie.
Alex has been working in marketing & PR roles for DC and Archie going back to 2004, prior to which he was in the newspaper industry.
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
