Oni Press has named Sarah Gaydos as its new editor-in-chief, a role that’s been vacant at the publisher since James Lucas Jones was named publisher a year ago.
Gaydos joined Oni Press last April as editorial director of licensed publishing, taking on titles like Rick and Morty. Before that, she worked at IDW and for DC’s Wildstorm imprint.
“In less than a year, Sarah has had a profound effect on Oni Press,” Jones said in a press release. “Her taste is impeccable and broad. Her network of colleagues both love and respect her. Her dedication to comics and the people who create them is virtually unmatched. There is no other person better suited to lead our editorial team and oversee the creation of amazing new comics for all types of readers.”
Gaydos will now oversee Oni’s entire line, in addition to developing future licensing partnerships and new creator-owned material.
Thanks, everyone!! And a special thank you for all of you who helped get me here, all the way from being the receptionist at WildStorm. I often say that I’m what happens when things go right for women in comics, and making it the norm, not the exception, is what I’m here to do. https://t.co/9pRiBMw5mu
