Devil’s Due Publishing proudly announces the addition of Brian Warmoth to its Chicago office as the company’s new Marketing Manager. In a year of major growth for DDP, Warmoth will handle marketing and publicity for Devil’s Due’s swelling catalogue of titles, including Mark Powers’ epic sci-fi series Drafted, Stefan Hutchinson and Tim Seeley’s Halloween: Nightdance, Seeley’s own Hack/Slash, Ryan Schifrin’s Spooks, and an expanding library soon to be announced projects.
“I’m excited to have Brian on board,” said Josh Blaylock, President of DDP. “He brings a great deal of experience and new ideas to the table, and is already off to a great start.”
“Adding Brian to the DDP family was a no-brainer,” added Sam Wells, Assistant Publisher at DDP. “He really understands the ins and outs of the industry and has a lot of fresh ideas on spreading the good word on all things Devil’s Due.”
Warmoth interned for both Wizard Magazine and independent trade book publisher Sourcebooks, Inc. while freelance writing for both Wizard and ToyFare Magazine and covering the comic book industry as a blogger for TheGreatCurve.net. He joined Wizard in 2006 as the magazine’s Online Staff Writer, covering both comic books and video games, and has also been a staff writer for ArtistSpectrum Magazine, discussing international breakout artists in New York City’s Agora Gallery. Warmoth graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2005 with a degree in English and Rhetoric: Professional Writing.
“With titles like Drafted, Spooks and Halloween: Nightdance building upon Devil’s Due’s impressive library of comic book properties and new opportunities emerging for them in film and elsewhere, I am really honored to get the chance to represent a publisher that I already have a great deal of respect for in new and creative ways,” said Warmoth.
Warmoth brings a honed perspective from within the direct and mass markets to his new position in a year where Devil’s Due continues to expand its presence in comic book shops and bookstores while continuing to pursue new media and interactive outlets for the publisher’s current and future I.P.’s along with its sister company Kunoichi, Inc.
