Brendan Wright has been hired as the Executive Editor at New Arab Media, the game publisher founded by Prince Fahad Al Saud. Wright will oversee the launch of NA3AM's shared universe of female heroes, Saudi Girls Revolution, and build the company's comics team.
An award-winning editor, Wright comes to NA3AM after a decade of experience in the comics field, beginning as an intern at Top Shelf Productions, followed by a seven-year tenure at Dark Horse Comics, where he edited MIND MGMT, Black Hammer, Usagi Yojimbo, and Archie vs. Predator. Prior to joining NA3AM, Wright worked as a freelance editor, partnering with a variety of publishers on such titles as Gregory Graves (Starburns Industries Press), Mayday (Image Comics), Heroines (Space Goat Publishing), and GWAR (Dynamite Entertainment).
Led by Al Saud and Wright, the first SGR titles, Latifa: The Bedouin Blade and Infidel, have begun production with the line planned to launch in Spring 2018. As part of a global talent-scouting effort, Wright will attend several conventions throughout 2017, beginning with Glasgow Comic Con on 1 July.
