Quietly revealed only a few hours ago, it appears that Tucker Stone – comic critic and blogger, most notably for The Comics Journal – has accepted a position with Nobrow Comics as their new US Sales and Marketing Director.
A long-time critic and comic advocate, Stone is one of the most well-known voices in independent and small-press comics criticism, and his Comics of the Weak column apparently wrapped up at the start of September – and now we know why. There have been a string of recent moves from comics blogging into comics marketing recently, including David Brothers and Ron Richards moving across to work at Image.
Congratulations to Stone – and to Nobrow – on the move! I’m sure this’ll be leading to some great things down the line.
