BOOM! Studios announced this week that it has promoted and hired several key employees in the Sales and Marketing teams following a historic year in which the company held the first ever comic-focused panel in San Diego Comic-Con’s infamous Hall H for Keanu Reeves’ record-breaking series BRZRKR, earned ten Eisner Award nominations, and launched a new wave of compelling creator-owned titles including Grim, R.L. Stine’s Stuff of Nightmares, Once Upon A Time At The End Of The World, and Behold, Behemoth!
