IDW Publishing's Group Editor Sarah Gaydos has jumped to Oni Press for the newly-created role of Editorial Director of Licensed Publishing. Gaydos, who has overseen the Disney line, Love is Love, Star Trek, and Jem & The Holograms, recently won "Best of San Diego People" award for her advocacy for women in comics.
“I couldn't be happier to join the Oni Press crew," said Gaydos. “Oni's vision for the future of comics is right where I want to be, and I can't wait to be there to help top-notch creators bring even more fantastic original and licensed comics for all types of readers into the world.”
Gaydos broke into comics in 2006 as an assistant to Hank Kanalz at DC's WildStorm imprint. She eventually transitioned to Assistant Editor then full Editor at DC. In 2013, Gaydos moved to San Diego to join IDW.
“I've been lucky to call Sarah a friend for years and I’m thrilled to have her joining our team as the Editorial Director of Licensed Publishing," said Oni Press Publisher/co-owner James Lucas Jones. “Her eye for talent, rapport with creators and licensors alike, and varied publishing experience will be a huge asset to Oni Press and its creators - across both tie-in and original work. I'm dying to see the projects this team-up will produce!”
