DC has named Shelly Bond as the new Executive Editor of Vertigo Comics, replacing the departing Karen Berger. When it was announced that Berger was leaving Vertigo after running the imprint for twenty years, Bond was considered by many to be the obvious successor.
Bond is currently the editor in charge of the successful Fables franchise and has helped manage the series and its various spinoffs for the last decade. With the hiatus of American Vampire and the pending cancellation of Hellblazer, Fables is currently Vertigo's lone successful franchise, although DC has promised that 2013 will be an eventful year for the imprint.
Also promoted are Mark Doyle and Will Dennis. Dennis has been promoted to Group Editor and Doyle has been promoted to Editor. Whether any of this bodes well for Vertigo remains to be seen.
