Marvel Comics assistant editor Heather Antos is leaving the publisher to become Editor-in-Chief of the eSports betting platform Unikrn. Antos takes over the position from Ryan Jurado, who will continue on at Unikrn as Head of Global Content.
"Plot twist! In today’s chapter of the Heather Antos Chronicles, I’m making a leap from Marvel comics to video games & esports as editor-in-chief of Unikrn," Antos tweeted. "It’s been a long-time goal of mine to branch out into the video game & competitive esports world. To do so under the guidance & leadership of Rahul Sood and Ryan Jurado is something I never would've thought possible. I absolutely cannot wait to dig my heels in & get running!"
Antos joined Marvel in February 2015, working as an assistant editor under editor Jordan White's office - which handled both the Star Wars and Deadpool titles. She previously worked at A Broken Link and Geek Legacy.
"But Star Wars and comics fans never fear! I promise this isn’t the last you’ve seen of me - with every door that closes a window pops open for some very cool announcements," Antos continued. "A special thank you to my friends and family I've made at Marvel over the past three years. We've told some pretty damn good stories. And I can't wait to see what magic I'll get to read now as a fan. An extra special thank you to Jordan D. White for taking the time four years ago to sit down and chat with an aspiring comics editor. You've been the best boss I've ever had, and one hell of a friend."
