70 DC Comics Staff Move To Burbank, 77 Will Leave The Publisher

CTM_1464-LR10It may be some comfort to DC Entertainment that at one point many more were believed to be leaving the publisher. But in the months since, some have been turned round.

A letter has been circulated to DC staffers, which we are choosing not to reproduce in case it identifies those who forwarded the information to Bleeding Cool. It lists 147 DC Entertainment staffers working out if New York. And shows that 70 will be joining the publisher as it moves from New York to Burbank and that 77 are not. Their positions will be effectively terminating with the move in April – if they haven't left already – though there are generous terms, and many will be on gardening leave for a year, effectively paid not to work with the competition.

And while Warners has instructed a reduction in staff across its business as a result of the Fox buyout falling through, this has also meant there has been little need for redundancies, voluntary or otherwise.

As we have pointed out, DC in Burbank is hiring. Here are the current open vacancies… anyone fancy any of them?
