Sandy Resnick is New Head of Rights
Posted by Milton Griepp on April 14, 2022 @ 3:18 am CT
Resnick was instrumental in putting together the deal between WEBTOON and DC for DC characters to appear on the platform (see "DC Universe Characters Are Coming to Webtoon").
Resnick started at DC in 1991 as Director, Licensed Publishing & Business Development and except for a two year stint at GameTap in the 00s worked at the company in a variety of licensing and international business development roles until a mass layoff in 2020. His final position there was Director – Global Affiliated Publishing & Business Development. Since late 2020, Resnick has been consulting on comics rights through his boutique agency Creative Bridges.
Resnick joins Executive Editor Bobbi Chase, who was Vice President of Global Publishing Initiatives & Digital Strategy at DC Comics and launched the publisher’s YA and middle-grade graphic novel program. At WEBTOON, Chase is heading up Webtoon Unscrolled, the new print imprint for collections of WEBTOON comics (see "Webtoon Unscrolled").
DC executives whose jobs were eliminated in the AT&T purges are turning up at multiple webtoon companies. WEBTOON competitor Tapas hired former DC Co-Editor-in-Chief Michele Wells as Chief Content Officer last year (see "Tapas Taps Michele Wells as Chief Content Officer").
