Avatar Press has announced that Hannah Means-Shannon has been hired as Bleeding Cool's first Editor in Chief. The news was first reported by Rich Johnston, who scooped his employer minutes before the press release was sent out. Johnston explains that Means-Shannon's hiring will allow Johnston to focus less on administrative tasks and more on making the comic industry's life a living hell, something which we fully appreciate and support.
However, not everyone is pleased by the development. "Lor' luv a duck! I'm pissed. Know what I mean?" said Rich Johnston's typos in a thick Cockney accent. Johnston's typos have long been a fixture on the site, and now it's believed that they'll be largely abolished under Means-Shannon. Johnston will be reporting to Means-Shannon, a reversal in their previous roles when she was Bleeding Cool's senior correspondent.
"Blimey! This is an outrage! Typos are an institushun in deese parts. There's no need fer an editor 'ere." Johnston's typos continued.
Comic website editors are more welcoming of the new hire, and encouraged Means-Shannon to crack down on Johnston in the harshest ways possible. "I wish Hannah the best of luck in her new role," said Outhouse editor in chief Christian Hoffer, the only website editor stupid enough to be quoted by the Outhouse. "I look forward to Rich chronicling the internal power struggles between himself and her in the coming months."
Time will tell what changes Means-Shannon brings to Bleeding Cool. Johnston's typos warned that there could be more radical changes on the way. "Next fng, they'll be sayin' we need articles based in fact," the typos warned. "End ov an era. Know what I mean?"
