Former Platinum editor Lee Nordling writes to advise of his new packaging venture. More here.

To begin this new year, I’ve left my role as Executive Editor of the Comic Book Department at Platinum Studios to form a new company, The Pack.

As a content provider, The Pack is going to tackle a wide range of book and product categories for several distribution outlets that will utilize the comics storytelling medium.

I’ve hooked up with numerous partners who’ll be working with me in some of these categories.

Barbara Kesel and Brian Augustyn will be joining me in the acquisition and development of new intellectual properties for graphic novels and comics.

An industry veteran writer and editor, Barbara was an editor for DC comics, Editor & Managing Editor for Dark Horse, and Head Writer for CrossGen. Her freelance writing career spans the comics field and also includes plays, educational comics, and YA fiction.

Brian’s been a prolific comics writer for all the major comics companies and has worked as an editor at DC Comics, was Senior Managing Editor for Metron Press, the Managing Editor for Visionary Comics Studio, and as a consultant for Narwain Publishing.

Dave Olbrich will be joining us in developing new nonfiction and adaptation of previously published nonfiction and fiction for the trade.

Most notably, Dave was Publisher of Malibu Comics and President of Doggworks, a comic artists and writers agency. He was also the Chief Administrative Monkey at Gorilla Comics and the Director of Publishing/U.S. for Humanoids, Inc.

Gordon Kent will be joining us in developing a wide range of properties and adaptations for New Media.

A longtime animation industry professional, Gordon has been an animation writer, story editor, producer, voice & timing director, and he’s currently the Supervising Director on “Class of 3000.” He was the lead writer on the “Rugrats” and “Pink Panther” comic strips.

We’re still working on our site, so the best way to reach us is through me by e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at 570-972-0653.
