Some hiring information from Wizard, after a longer period of trimming staff. According to a press release, long-time staffer Mike Cotton has been promoted to Editor of Wizard. Also:

“Mike has built strong relationships with both creators and fans of comics,” said Shamus. “His promotion is a testament to how well he connects with Wizard readers and how respected he is in the comics industry.”

In addition, Shamus announced the promotions of Andy Serwin to Features Editor and the hiring of a new Managing Editor, Casey Seijas. Serwin was hired by Wizard in 1999 and most recently held the role of Assistant Managing Editor. Seijas had been an editor at DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint for nearly four years before joining MTV Networks last August.

While we’d heard some rumors going around this week that EIC Scott Gramling had left Wizard, according to spokesperson April Wiggins, he is still at Wizard.
