Valiant Entertainment's Executive Editor Joseph Illidge has exited the company. Illidge joined the company in April 2018, stepping in following the departure of Editor-in-Chief Warren Simons.
"I’ve had a lot of dynamic and provocative conversations the last few days," Illidge tells Newsarama, "and am excited to be connecting with people who are truly ready to explore the deep and inherently powerful connections between character and culture in contemporary comics and other media. Stay tuned!"
During his time at Valiant, Illidge oversaw the launch of the Faith: Dreamside and Bloodshot: Rising Spirit titles, as well as the upcoming Livewire, Incursion, and Forgotten Queen.
Valiant confirmed Illidge's departure, but declined to comment.
Prior to Valiant, Illidge was the Senior Editor at Lion Forge where he spearheaded the Catalyst Prime superhero universe. He has previously worked at DC Comics on the Batman line, as well as Milestone Media.
