Press Release

Dark Horse Comics is pleased to announce the promotion of former assistant editor Daniel Chabon to associate editor!

DanielChabonChabon, who celebrated his third year with the company this June, will now take on the full-time responsibility of maintaining a balance between the needs of creators, copyright holders, and the publishing company. His new position as associate editor entails project management, facilitation, and problem solving.

“It’s fitting that I first met Dan at Portland’s H. P. Lovecraft Film Fest, a few years ago. Since then, he’s become an invaluable part of the Mignola team, and more recently he’s been incredible at bringing in great artists, and running some really difficult projects on his own. We’re glad we’re not losing him off Mike’s books, and I’m excited by what he has happening on his own,” said Dark Horse’s editor in chief, Scott Allie.

As an associate editor, Daniel will continue to assist on and coedit several titles, while taking a larger role on many of them—including Hellboy, B.P.R.D., Criminal Macabre, and The Occultist.

“Dark Horse could use more good (meaning smart) young men like Daniel Chabon. I don’t know that there are any more like him so I’m very glad at least they have the one—and have the good sense to promote him. He certainly deserves it and I look forward to continuing to work with him for a very long time,” Mike Mignola noted.

Chabon will also be editing more of his own titles, including Kiss Me, Satan!, Alabaster, Axe Cop, The Creep, Colder, and more to come!

“From the beginning, Daniel Chabon has been great to work with. I kept thinking, ‘This guy’s too good to be a comics editor. I wonder how long he’ll last.’ And then they go and promote him, so I’m thinking he’ll be sticking around a while—which is great news for everybody who loves the Hellboy universe,” stated John Arcudi (The Creep, B.P.R.D.).

Please join us in congratulating Daniel Chabon on his past accomplishments, and wishing him luck in his new role in the company.
