Sarah Gaydos and Oni Press-Lion Forge Part Ways
It’s not too often you see a statement like the below but Oni Press-Lion Forge and Sarah Gaydos have announced that they have parted ways.
Gaydos was the Editor in Chief for the publisher. She joined the company in 2018 as the Editorial Director of Licensed Publishing. She was then promoted in 2019 to Editor in Chief where she had been in the role ever since.
Gaydos began her comics career at WildStorm, an imprint of DC Comics, in 2006. She began in the administration department, and worked her way into editorial, cutting her teeth on licensed titles like World of Warcraft and titles for younger readers like Batman: Li’l Gotham. After joining IDW Publishing and eventually being promoted to Group Editor, Gaydos has found success editing a wide variety of content, with a special focus on comics for kids.
Publisher James Lucas Jones will oversee the day-to-day editorial operations while a search for a replacement takes place. Managing editor Chris Cerasi and associate publisher Michelle Nguyen will support Jones.
