Rickey Purdin is Marvel’s New Talent Manager

B_WWzyHWEAACbOQ.jpg_largeRickey Purdin, DC Comics former associate editor, is now Marvel’s new talent manager. In a statement, Purdin said:

I can’t express how thrilling it is to join Marvel after so many years of reading these comics and being shaped by the characters, stories, and creative teams. Aiding Marvel’s extremely talented editorial team is a dream come true and incredible developments are already in the works.

Purdin will be helping to fill the void created when Jeanine Schaefer, Marvel’s former senior manager of talent relations, relocated to Los Angeles. Specifically, Purdin will:

continue to escalate and bring awareness to the Marvel Comics brand by seeking out and cultivating the next generation of comic book writers and artists as well as working with Marvel’s current pantheon of extraordinary creators.”

Stay tuned, kids…
