Marvel editorial reshuffling continues in the wake of Steve Wacker’s move to the West Coast and DCs own editorial exodus making a bunch of top tier editors available. Nick Lowe, formerly of the X-office, is taking over the Spider office vacated by Wacker. Meanwhile, Mike Marts has come over to be Executive Editor—of what we’re not sure. DC’s Wil Moss has also migrated over to Marvel.
So, for those keeping score, leaves the X-office looking for an editor…will it be Marts? Or will some other DC refugee take on that role?
Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce that Nick Lowe will be the new Senior Editor of Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man related titles beginning this February.
After leading the X-Men through a Schism, a Revolution and a Battle, Nick Lowe is setting his sights on the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Working closely with the creative powerhouses of Dan Slott, Mark Waid, Warren Ellis, Humberto Ramos, Giuseppe Camuncoli and many more, Nick Lowe will be shepherding the books of the Spider-office as Marvel moves forward in this exhilarating year for Peter Parker and his amazing friends.
“I’ve loved Spider-Man since I stole my brother’s Spidey comics back in the 90’s!” exclaims Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “It’s a huge honor to be working on Marvel’s most popular character. After ten years (!) I’m going to miss the X-Men, but I’m excited to join the incredible group of men and women working on books in the Spider-Man Office.”
“[Writer] Dan Slott is weaving an intricate web for Spider-Man in 2014, and I’m excited to see what Senior Editor Nick Lowe — a veteran of the X-Men titles — contributes to the line,” says EIC Axel Alonso.
Nick Lowe is just another outstanding talent continuing his visionary work with Marvel during the hugely successful All-New Marvel NOW! initiative – featuring bold new launches from some of the industry’s hottest creators.
