Alongside the acquisition of Valiant Entertainment by the Chinese firm DMG Entertainment in January, three executives were shown the door: Chief Creative Officer and CEO Dinesh Shamdasani, Chairman Peter Cuneo, and CFO Gavin Cuneo

The comic book publisher IP farm took another huge hit this week with the announcement that VP of Marketing & Communications Hunter Gorinson has decided to leave the company. Gorinson has been with the company since its relaunch in 2012.

In his time at Valiant, Gorinson was crucial to bringing the company's very '90s characters into modern day. He also led the charge for Jody Houser's Faith, bringing the publisher an Eisner nomination.

While he'll step into a consultancy role until his replacement can be found, it's unknown where Gorinson will end up next.
