§ Just another contender to the throne: Casey Seijas has left his position as associate editor at Vertigo to blog about comics at Splash Page, the new MTV comics blog. Kevin Melrose runs the attached photo in his announcement of the move, showing that Seijas is definitely ready for MTV, or at least the Headbanger’s Ball era.
Melrose also picks up the recent departure of Tom Palmer Jr. from DC — Palmer was a 10-plus year vet but had never risen above associate, which, traditionally, is not that unusual at DC, where toiling for years and years without making the level of editor is SOP. That tradition was recently shattered when Elisabeth Gehrlein was promoted from Associate to full Editor after a tenure of a mere one year.
We’re told assistant Stephanie Buscema also left recently.
