Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Alex Alonso has stepped down from his role, and now C.B. Cebulski, Marvel’s VP of international brand management, will be taking his place.
Alonso began as EiC in 2011 and went on to oversee Marvel events such as Avengers vs. X-Men, The Death of Wolverine, and Secret Wars, as well as the highly controversial and under-performing Secret Empire that saw Captain America become an evil agent of Hydra. Popular new characters Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan, Spider-Gwen, and Spider-Man Miles Morales were all created and put at the forefront of Marvel’s publishing during his tenure.
The president of Marvel Entertainment, Dan Buckley, told the New York Times that Alonso’s departure was a “mutually agreed upon parting of ways,” and went on to praise Alonso for leading the company to “some of our top two or three sales years of all time.”
Cebulski has had a variety of roles at Marvel, but is best known for editing the hit series Runaways by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Adrian Alphona, which is set to debut as a TV show on Hulu. In addition to guiding the creative vision of Marvel’s superheroes in the comics, Cebulski will be tasked with recruiting new writers and artists.
