A number of comics coming and goings of late:
§ Dark Horse has promoted Sarah Robertson to director of sales.
Robertson will be responsible for business development, overseeing the in-house sales team, managing distributor and retailer relationships, sales forecasting, increasing department performance, and other functions key to leading Dark Horse’s in-house sales division.

Robertson began her career at Dark Horse Comics in June 2008 as an account executive and was promoted to manager of sales in January 2013.
“I’m very happy to be continuing my time as part of the Dark Horse family with this new title,” said Robertson. “I have a wonderful team who have been beside me all the way and look forward to taking the department even further as director.”
A graduate of Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Robertson received her bachelor of commerce degree with a major in global business management.
