Victor Gorelick Does Not Pay Tribute to Archie's Co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit

Earlier today, Bleeding Cool posted a tribute to Archie co-President and EIC Victor Gorelick sent to us by Archie Comics co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit on the occasion of his being at Archie for 60 years.

It did not go over well.

In response, Gorelick has sent the following message to Bleeding Cool, saying,

"Despite my desire to focus on the work of continuing to expand and build upon Archie's recent successes, I feel I have to take a moment to respond to Nancy Silberkleit's egregiously disingenuous statement first posted on Bleeding Cool. Nancy Silberkleit is not a friend of mine and we have not spoken in many years. She has no intimate knowledge of my role at Archie, nor has she been a part of any of the company's huge victories over the last decade. This essay is merely her latest attempt to piggyback on the many highs the company has reached without – and in spite of – her."

There have certainly been ructions between sections of Archie Comics, with accusations of harassment. Nancy's position was one she inherited from her late husband, and those ructions saw her and those who supported her sidelined or paid off. Of late things seems to have settled down and Nancy has played a more ambassadorial role. But it looks like the Northside and the Southside are up to their usual tricks again…
