Marvel Editor Ellie Pyle Announces Move to DC Comics

The winds of change are blowing. Marvel editor Ellie Pyle, who has worked on books  such as Daredevil, Black Widow, and Spider-Man 2099, and the company's new series Silk, announced  via Twitter that she would be departing Marvel and moving over to DC Comics LA offices to work as an editor for their Vertigo imprint. In a statement released on her Twitter page, Pyle said:

Over the last 4 years , I have gotten to work with some of the best talent and editors and (therefore) on some of the best books......but I will be heading west in a few weeks to join [Shelly Bond] and her team as an Editor at Vertigo! Very excited for the great books to come! You all know I love to hear from readers, and that will continue to be true wherever I am, and whatever I'm working on! And fear not...…I'll be leaving Daredevil, Spidey, Silk, Black Widow and 2099 safely in the editorial hands of [Nick  Lowe] [Sana  Amanat] and [Devin Lewis].....but I better get back to work so they have less to blame me for when I'm gone! :)

While the announcement of the move came out of nowhere it couldn't have come at a more perfect time. Early next year DC is moving all of its operations directly to the West Coast and setting Pyle up on staff is a great way to help take Vertigo comics up to the next level. On my end, I'm not worried about quality, as every book that she has edited and I have read, I've loved. When push comes to shove, Ellie Pyle can only be an asset to Vertigo and I look forward to seeing her work.
