Ben Abernathy, former DC Comics and Wildstorm editor left the company a few years back to work with Madefire… but now he is returning as the Director of Talent Relations. Abernathy teased his return on twitter today, but then Gail Simone let the cat out of the bag all together.
I got a chance to meet Ben a few years ago while touring the Wildstorm offices. When he found out my wife was a fan of Supernatural, he loaded her up with copies of the comic series they had done for the show. He is extremely well liked in the community and an excellent choice to be the liaison between the company and the talent both new and veteran. Congrats on the new job Ben.
