Last month, Dark Horse Editor in Chief Scott Allie changed jobs from Editor in Chief to Senior Executive Editor. At the time, Bleeding Cool ran a puff interview by then-Editor in Chief Hannah Means Shannon talking about Allie's decision to step away from the role because it just wasn't right for him:
HMS: It sounds like your intentions to do good for the company were also driving things, but the personality fit wasn't an exact match for the job description.
SA: Yeah, I wanted to do right by the company, of course. I've been there forever. There was a conversation I had with Dave Marshall, who's now the new Editor-in-Chief, a few months ago, where we were talking about the challenges I was dealing with, and what the department needed. Dave was the one who proposed this idea, that he'd take my job, and I'd work with Randy and Mike on the company direction—but not have to manage the staff. Managing the staff is the thing that Dave is charged up about, working with this group of editors.
In a completely unrelated incident, earlier this month, Scott Allie was named in a sexual harassment scandal that involved multiple reports of inappropriate touching, licking, and biting of colleagues, most notably one that occurred at San Diego Comic Con in July. As this incident was, as we said, completely unrelated, it obviously had nothing to do with Allie's demotion that just happened to occur right before the story broke.
Today, in a third and also completely unrelated incident - so unrelated, we're not even sure what it's doing in this article - Hannah Means Shannon has been hired as Associate Editor at Dark Horse.
Inspired by this chain of events, which, we remind you, are completely unrelated, Bleeding Cool Chief Rumormonger Rich Johnston took to Twitter to engage in his third most favorite ritual (after tooting his own horn and dancing with penguins): vanity searching and fighting with anyone who disparages him or Bleeding Cool's honor. We've gathered his adventures in a little segment we stole from Bleeding Cool that we like to call: Fanboy Rampage.
Fanboy Rampage was a blog by Graeme McMillan dedicated to the funniest, most ludicrous and most inappropriate comic book back-and-forths online. McMillan has moved on now, becoming a proper journalist for the likes of Newsarama and Spinoff but he gave permission to Bleeding Cool to revive his great creation. Then we stole it, because we're The Outhouse, and that's how we roll.
Goo goo g'joob.
