DC Comics has announced that Robert Harras has been named the new Editor-in-Chief, VP, of DC Comics.  Harras will be in charge of editorial content for DC Comics, DC Universe, Mad Magazine, and Vertigo, and report to co-publishers Dan Didio and Jim Lee (for their view of the market and DCs place in it, see “Interview with Lee and Didio, Part 1”).   He will be based in New York City, along with the rest of DC’s editorial staff (see “DC Becomes More Bi-Coastal”). 


Perhaps indicating the importance of the book business to DC, Harras has been Group Editor, Collected Editions at DC Comics.  He also served as EIC of Marvel Comics from 1995 to 2000.
