Continuing their social media transparency on new hires, DC has hired Jamie S. Rich, former Oni editor and currently a very prolific comics writer, as Senior Editor at Vertigo. Jamie McKelvie quickly cut to the heart of the matter:

Rich left Oni to pursue his writing and he’s been very busy with a whole shelf of books like Love the Way You Love, It Girl and the Atomics, Ares & Aphrodite and just out in collected form Madame Frankenstein. Seriously, this guy likes to write! Obviously he brings a very strong sensibility to Vertigo and, as I mentioned in a comment here a few days back, though the imprint’s sales have been sluggish of late, it is far from circling the drain. Hiring an editor of Rich’s talent there shows there’s a lot more to come.
Okay, so Ben Abernathy, Andy Khouri, Rebecca Taylor, Jamie S. Rich…who’s next for DC’s left coast edition?
