Marvel has appointed C.B. Cebulski as the new editor-in-chief, with Axel Alonso stepping down and departing ways with the company.

Cebulski joined Marvel in 2002 as an associate editor, as well as writing for Mavel’s Mangaverse line. During his tenure, he served as editor to the successful Runaways series by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona. He also became Marvel’s head talent scout, being instrumental in the hirings of Marvel’s well-known creators in recent years such as Adi Granov, Skottie Young, Sara Pichelli, Phil Noto, Steve McNiven and Jonathan Hickman.

Recently, he was promoted to VP of International Business Deveopment & Brand Management, and relocated to Asia to establish partnerships in new and emerging markets.

“Spending these last 18 months in Asia, and introducing more fans here to the depth of the Marvel Universe, I’ve seen firsthand how our comics and characters constantly bring joy into people’s lives all over the world,” Cebulski said. “I hope to continue capturing that creative magic here at home, and deliver inspirational and entertaining stories that are true to the classic Marvel DNA, but built with an expanding global mindset.”

As the new editor-in-chief, Cebulski will be responsible for the day-to-day editorial and creative operations of Marvel’s publishing department.

“C.B. is one of the most well-known, liked and respected editors and personalities in the comics industry.  He has a keen understanding of the Marvel brand, and knows the importance of publishing within the larger Marvel ecosystem,” said Dan Buckley, President, Marvel Entertainment.  “As our characters continue to reach unprecedented levels of global popularity, we need to ensure our core comic business sets the standard with fresh and compelling graphic storytelling that excites both our longtime fan base and new fans. Marvel has set a high bar for super hero stories for over 75 years, and we believe C.B. is perfectly positioned to take Marvel Comics to new heights.”
