Heather Antos Now Promoted To Senior Editor At IDW

In April, Bleeding Cool reported that Heather Antos had left Valiant Entertainment as a Senior Editor, to become an Editor at IDW, working on their Star Wars and Marvel Action lines. Well, those two lines may be coming to an end at IDW, as previously reported by Bleeding Cool but Antos' position at IDW isn't going with them – indeed, she has been promoted by IDW to Senior Editor. Heather Antos announced the promotion online, amending her Twitter bio to the new credit and then tweeting "New title, who dis?"

In 2015 Heather Antos became an assistant editor at Marvel Comics, helping launch Marvel's Star Wars line and accidentally becoming a co-creator of Gwenpool. In 2018, Antos became the new EIC of Unikrn, an Esports betting company in Las Vegas, while continuing to freelance-edit comic books such as Bitter Root at Image Comics. But it wasn't long before she returned to comics full-time in 2019 as an editor at Valiant Entertainment and in 2020 was promoted to Senior Editor, before moving to San Diego-based Valiant in 2021. Now she has received that Senior Editor title again at IDW.
