Comics News Journalists Rush To Polish Resumes As Chris D'Lando Leaves Marvel

Comics journalists were up late Monday night, not for any important breaking news, but to update their resumes, as Chris D'Lando exited Marvel that day, where he served as Junior Sales & Communications Admin. He told, another former employer, Bleeding Cool:

As some of you may have noticed, I am no longer with Marvel as of May 1st. I have valued my time there immensely, and am so grateful for the opportunity I was given, but I needed to make a change. I've had the chance to work with some of the best creators in the business, some of the hardest working behind-the-scenes people as well as great folks outside the company– all of whom I look upon fondly. I'm now ready to move on to the next great opportunity and possibly try some other things (so keep me in mind!), both within the comics world and beyond. I'll always be a Marvel kid at heart and oh what a ride it has been.

Creators reached out to congratulate D'Lando.


It would only be natural for Marvel to poach another comics journalist to fill his position. May I suggest one of The Outhouse's own: Sdsichero, Zechs, or even myself?

Here are three quick pitches:

SDsichero-Wants to bring back Tsunami.

Zechs-Spells every fifth word correct.

Tim-Talks shit on other applicants/Trying to sell out.
