Mel Caylo, Boom! Studios Marketing Manager, is no longer with company according to email bouncebacks and confirmed independently. Caylo was at Boom for four years, following stints at Archaia (after its acquisition by Boom), Top Cow, and Wizard.
The bounceback requested people to email Arune Singh with questions. We’re told that there were no other layoffs.
Hi, everyone! I am no longer with BOOM! Studios. Still planning my next move so if you hear of any PR/marketing opportunities in comics or entertainment, please hit me up here, Facebook, or email: mel[dot]caylo[at]gmail[dot]com. Thanks!

Caylo told Newsarama “I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to work at Archaia and BOOM! Studios,” Caylo told Newsarama Friday morning. “It was an incredible experience and I made some great relationships there. Right now, I’m planning my next move, and if I stay in comics, an industry I love, you’ll be hearing from me again!”
Caylo is seen above at this year’s SDCC doing what he does best, talking about Boom! and smiling. He’s definitely one of comics most popular behind the scenes people, so as usual, we expect him to land on his feet well from this.
Aw heck, let’s be honest. We love Mel. And so does everyone else.
