So @BexTay has done some of my favorite Archaia books and now she's working with me at DC. I'm thrilled and know she's gonna teach me a lot.

….aaaaaand as we long ago predicted, DC is raiding a few players from the locals, in this case Boom!/Archaia by hiring Rebecca Taylor, formerly of Archaia. Taylor worked mostly on Archaia’s line of graphic novels (hmmmmmmmmm), and she’s another thoroughly modern millie who should help bring DC’s editorial viewpoint firmly on trend with comics new demographic.
Another thing that’s notable is the social media transparency of these moves. Most of the young editors on the West Coast already have a social media profile and it’s nice to see that that world is being acknowledged from the git go.
