I’m thrilled that day is finally here as he is one of the most exciting executives working in comics today,” Sablik said. “Hunter’s robust and varied expertise is an exciting addition to our already accomplished management team.

Those strengths have been built on twin foundations: the company’s deeply talented, multifaceted roster of creators, and an exceptionally accomplished, forward-thinking team that has worked tirelessly to push BOOM! to new heights. I’m honored and excited to be joining them at this watershed moment,” Gorinson said.
