This crazy news day continues with some sad news to report. Unfortunately we have only just discovered the news, a month later. We have learned that Archie Comics’ corporate section has let go a fifth of their staff.
Bleeding Cool has been informed that Archie Comics has laid off a significant number of their office staff, six out of their thirty employees. I have been told that it’s not from the executive level, but from production and warehouse. And that this includes a production assistant, and a senior art director who has been with the company for over twenty years.
Archie Comics declined to provide any comment, earlier today.
While this is strictly at the corporate level only and shouldn’t affect the team behind making the comics themselves layoffs are still layoffs. It’s still people being let go from their job and it is never good to see. We wish those laid off all the best.
