BOOM! Studios has announced that it has hired Spencer Simpson as Sales Manager. In this newly created role, Simpson will report directly to Filip Sablik, President of Publishing and Marketing, while focused on growing BOOM! Studios’ already expanding book, library, specialty, and mass market footprint beginning in January 2018.
Simpson is a graduate of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, with a decade of experience as a key influencer who’s shaped graphic novel availability in bookstores at a national level. Spencer comes to BOOM! Studios with nearly 20 years of experience in the book market, as a store manager, Training Manager, and Communications Coordinator for Books-A-Million, before rising to the position of Buyer at American Wholesale Book Company (AWBC). AWBC distributes into 2nd & Charles and Books-A-Million, the second largest bookstore chain in the US. Beginning in 2011, as the Buyer for Comics & Graphic Novels, he developed AWBC’s comic program at retail (2014) bringing single issue comics into Books-A-Million and 2nd & Charles stores. In 2015, Simpson developed and launched AWBC’s variant cover brand, Fried Pie Comics. The following year he spearheaded the first annual Fried Pie Con, a free in-store convention.
This new hire follows other recent key personnel moves for BOOM! Studios in a landmark year which saw 20th Century Fox become a minority investor in the company; the launch of some of the most critically acclaimed new releases in company history (Grass Kings, Mech Cadet Yu, Bolivar, Jane and Heavy Vinyl); the announcement of a feature film development slate including Mouse Guard and Goldie Vance; and celebrating over 1,000,000 copies sold of Lumberjanes worldwide.
