DC Entertainment Terminates Editor Eddie Berganza

DC Entertainment Terminates Editor Eddie Berganza

Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have fired editor Eddie Berganza amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

"We are committed to eradicating harassment and ensuring that all employees, as well as our freelance community, are aware of our policies, are comfortable reporting any concerns and feel supported by our company", the company said in a statement. Everyone who said they complained about Berganza to DC's human resources department in 2010 has since left the company, and some comics professionals said they turned down offers to work on titles that Berganza oversaw because of the allegations against him. Berganza still received the promotion, but was demoted to group editor in 2012 after another woman said he kissed her without her consent at a comics convention. Over the weekend, DC had issued a statement saying Berganza had been suspended and an investigation was underway.

Within comics culture, Berganza's alleged behavior has for years been an open secret, the subject of blunt gossip and open speculation. "But as a fan and supporter, I expect them and Warner Bros to do the right thing and fire Eddie Berganza". BuzzFeed's article suggests that Berganza was the unnamed superior.

Berganza, 53, had been at DC Comics since the 1990s and worked on Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman titles. The woman did not report the incident to DC - she was not an employee and says she was afraid doing so would jeopardize her or her partner's prospects in the comics industry - but dozens of witnesses allegedly saw the incident occur. HR reportedly did no follow-up with any of these employees, and despite their complaints, Berganza was promoted to executive editor - a blow Asselin called "massively demoralizing".

DC Comics also reiterated its commitment to create a safe and secure working place for employees and everyone that's involved in creating their comic books.

DC did not disclose who would be assuming Berganza's duties as Group Editor.

Last week, a Buzzfeed expose revealed that DC Comics had a villain in its midst.
