Dark Horse has joined the waving of hirings and advertisements going around the comics manufacture with four advertisements and two new hires. Let’s meet the new and newly empowered faces!
Ian Tucker has been promoted to Senior Books Editor. Ian Tucker entered the publishing industry in 2010 after turning a job in publish technology into its own position in the Dark Horse Comics digital art department. In 2012, he transferred to the editorial department. Seeing the importance of the then burgeoning art journal platform, he stepped into the role of almost exclusively editing art bibles. Among the projects Ian has administered to perfection are The Art of God of War, The world countries of Cyberpunk 2077, The Art of Rick and Morty, and Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive Volumes 1-3. In 2018, Ian fulfilled a lifelong dream when he had the pleasure of interviewing Mark Hamill for The Art of DreamWorks Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia. Ian would like to assure everyone that Mr. Hamill is indeed the best.
Jenny Blenk has been promoted to Associate Editor. With a BA in English Literature from Western Washington University, and an MA from Portland State University in English Literature and a Comics Studies Certificate, Jenny affiliated Dark Horse as an intern in the spring of 2017 and was subsequently hired as an Assistant Editor in February of 2018. Jobs Jenny has assisted in bringing to life include the line of Critical Role notebooks, the Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra lines, and the ever-expanding diaries from Mike Mignola’s Hellboy Universe. In addition to assisting on these incredibly important journals, Jenny will continue to grow her own line up of books including the fine art collection Sacred Decay: The Art of Lauren Marx.
Judy Khuu has been promoted to Associate Editor. Judy first connected the Dark horse squad in 2015 as Mike Richardson’s Executive Assistant, then induced the transition to the editorial department in 2018 and has proved to be an precious representative ever since. While continuing to assist on high level dimensions such as Overwatch, Embeds vs. Zombies, and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Judy has taken over editing responsibilities for The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 and will begin to expand her own front of titles.
Rae Boyadjis has been promoted to Berger Books Associate Editor. A postgraduate from Sarah Lawrence College in 2012, Rae affiliated Dark Horse as Karen Berger’s assistant on the esteemed Berger Books imprint in 2018. Since working on the Berger Books line, they have been integrally involved on deeds such as Invisible Kingdom, She Could Fly, Ruby Falls, and Post York. Rae is also a professional aerialist in New York City where they are the resident aerial advisor for Speakeasy Dollhouse Productions.
Sanjay Dharawat has been hired as an Assistant Editor. Sanjay is a graduate of both the University of Rochester where he impounds a BA in History and of Portland State University where he props an MA in Book Publishing. Originally hired as an apprentice back in 2018, Sanjay now joins the Dark Horse Editorial department full-time. In his role, he will be assisting Ian Tucker on his wire of skill notebooks, Shantel LaRocque on her route of licensed entitles, and with Brett Israel on his ever-growing line of creator-owned assets like the recently announced mini-series, The Worst Dudes. Sanjay likes to travel and has spent a month-long trip backpacking around Australia.
Rose Weitz has been hired as an Assistant Editor. Rose is a recent grad from Portland State University where she received a BA in English and a Comics Studies Certificate. Rose came back Dark horse through the Portland State University Comics Studies Intern Program where she worked closely with the editorial personnel during the winter of 2019. She now assembles us full day where she will be assisting on a wide variety of projects. Rose currently lives under a rock-and-roll with her “cat-o-nine-tail” who goes by the aroused figure, Gaston.
Dark Horse execs were thrilled with all the moves.
Karen Berger, Editor of the Berger Books imprint, had this to say about the promotion of Rae Boyadjis: “Rae has excelled in their work for the Berger Books imprint over the past two plus years. Their abrupt editorial, copywriting and communication sciences have been a great asset to the line, and Rae’s reliability, dedication to the books, and positive force establishes them a true-blue please to work with.”
Editor-in-Chief Dave Marshall had this to say about the publicities: “I’m so grateful to work with such skilled and dedicated tribes. Ian, Jenny, and Judy are sterling, returning a collaborative flavor, a venerate for the creative process, and a pure love of notebooks to each project they promise. Likewise, Sanjay and Rose so impressed as interns it was a joy when they agreed to join the team full time. Expect numerous accomplishments from all of them in the coming years.”
