P.J. Bickett has left his position as the CEO of Devil’s Due Publishing effective December 1st. DDP President Josh Blaylock will take over Bickett’s duties on an interim basis. Blaylock has recently left Kunoichi Inc., the creative services firm launched in 2005, to focus completely on DDP.
Bickett has been working with DDP for the past three years, advising on corporate realignment and development before becoming the CEO some 14 months ago.
The news of Bickett’s departure comes on the heels of a report yesterday from Comic Book Resources that DDP has just laid off editor Cody DeMatteis and Marketing Manager Brian Warmoth. When contacted by CBR, Blaylock replied that DDP was “going through a little bit of restructuring.”
