Days before Valiant makes a big announcement at New York Comic Con 2019, the publisher revealed that Greg Tumbarello has joined the company as Editor. Tumbarello has more than 15 years of professional experience in comics and entertainment, with work as an editor, writer, and producer for MTV Networks, Image Comics, CBLDF, Marvel, DC, Tokyopo, and more. He also cofounded the comic book division at Legendary Entertainment with Bob Schreck, then spent seven years there as an editor.
In his new role at Valiant, Tumbarello will develop new properties and evolve existing franchises. He said in a statement, “Growing up as a comics reader in the ’90s, I remember the excitement that surrounded the birth of the Valiant Universe. Through Valiant I found some of my favorite writers and artists in the comic book industry. I look forward to continuing the tradition of guiding new and established talent to create unique and exciting stories in the Valiant Universe for years to come.”
On his hiring, Valiant Senior Editorial Director Robert Meyers said in a statement, “I’m thrilled to have Greg join the Valiant family. Greg has a keen mind for storytelling, and a wealth of experience in the comics and entertainment industries. As we gear up for #Valiant2020, Greg will be a key part of our growing success.”
