Zagari was previously at Disney/Marvel/Star Wars/Pixar, and DC, and is also a webcartoonist himself so he could be going literally anywhere, as he has a wide-ranging skill set.
That skill set was greatly in use in the year or go Zagari was at Aftershock, helping them with building a backlist, digital and lots of other stuff.
Aftershock just hired Christina Harrington, formerly of Marvel as Managing Editor so they appear to be full steam ahead.
But, the comics industry game of musical chairs continues! Where will YOU be when the music stops?
