ReedPOP Global Director of Comic Talent Jim Demonakos is leaving the company, he announced on Facebook Monday. Demonakos plans to take some time off, relocate back to Seattle from Connecticut (where ReedPOP is headquartered), and pursue some new ideas, his announcement said. He’ll also do some freelance consulting for ReedPOP.
"This is not the end of my involvement in the comics industry by any means, just a chance to change things up," he wrote.
Demonakos joined ReedPOP when the company acquired Emerald City Comic Con in 2015 (see "ReedPOP Acquires Emerald City"). He was a Seattle-area retailer (The Comic Stop) when he founded the show in 2003.
