C.B. Cebulski has replaced Axel Alonso as Marvel Comics' new Editor-In-Chief, with Alonso leaving Marvel entirely after 17 years at the company. Alonso served as Editor-In-Chief from 2011 to this very morning, overseeing many major stories from the publisher, including Avengers Vs. X-Men, Secret Wars, and the recent Secret Empire.
With such a tenure, Alonso's departure and Cebulski's promotion are drawing reactions from both current and former Marvel creators on Twitter.

My sincere and great thanks to @axelalonsomarv. He has been a great help and champion of good stories over the last bunch of years. I owe him a lot, and will miss working with him.— Jordan D. White (@cracksh0t) November 17, 2017
Congratulations to @CBCebulski--it's been great working with him in the past, and we missed having him around when he popped off to China these last 2 years. It will be great having him back.— Jordan D. White (@cracksh0t) November 17, 2017

Thanks to @axelalonsomarv on a stellar run as EIC.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) November 17, 2017
I'll always be grateful for the trust he had in the spider-team to do big, crazy things like Superior. Can't imagine anyone else taking that leap of faith with us. Will miss you, sir.

Big congrats to @CBCebulski! One of the nicest people in all of comics-- with an uncanny ability to make every creator feel special, and to always spot the newest, boldest talents out there. He's gonna make one hell of a great EIC!

Hugest congrats to @CBCebulski. When I was just starting out in comics CB was always supportive and quick to offer advice that helped shape my career. I wouldn't be where I am without that and I'm excited to learn more from him.

Yo! @axelalonsomarv thanks for making my comic a reality, my dude! Not to mention bringing Hip Hop energy to the big two all the way back to Preacher reciting KRS-ONE lyrics.— Ed Piskor (@EdPiskor) November 17, 2017

Also, thanks & appreciation to @axelalonsomarv who has been terrific to work with on every level. Always trying cool new things. He took chances on me on projects as diverse as an ESPN Magazine/NBA insert to working with The Weeknd. Can't wait to see what he does next.— Christos Gage (@Christosgage) November 17, 2017

Excellent choice in @CBCebulski as new Marvel EIC. He loves comics and comic book creators. (And cats.) He really looked out for me on a thing recently (I know, vaguetweeting). One of the true good guys in the business.
