Report: Layoffs at DC Comics, Diamond

The Beat reports on layoffs at DC Comics and Diamond Comics, apparently due to the continuing economic crisis.  The most high-profile among them is Bob Schreck, who co-founded Oni Press, edited “Sin City” at Dark Horse, and edited “The Dark Knight Strikes Again” and “All-Star Batman and Robin” for DC.  DC is part of Time Warner, which recently announced cuts across all departments.  Mad Magazine, also under the Time Warner umbrella, announced it was going to quarterly publication, according to Blog @ Newsarama.  It’s also ceasing publication of Mad Kids and Mad Classics.

Diamond Comics is the largest comic-book distributor in the United States, and is in the process of moving its main shipping hub.  The Beat reported 13 layoffs.
