Sources have confirmed that Hunter Gorinson, Valiant’s VP of Marketing & Communications will be leaving Valiant on Friday. It was Gorinson’s decision and he remains on good terms with the company. Starting next week, Gorinson will be working with Valiant as a consultant and helping them find a suitable replacement for his old position.
Gorinson himself commented about this on Twitter:
It’s been an honor to contribute to Valiant’s rebirth and help build one of the most talented teams in comics today. From our amazing staff to our incredible creators, working alongside my friends and colleagues at Valiant has been among the most rewarding experiences of my life! https://t.co/VA0SR4IYda

We expect there will be a more formal announcement soon, but in the meantime, we’ll just say The Beat can think of at least two major publishers where Hunter would be a massive upgrade.
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.
