Marie Javins has been promoted to become DC's Executive Editor of New Publishing Initiatives, leading a new division internally at the publisher. The initiative will include a renewed focus on DC's international efforts, and according to a source familiar with the initiative it is "a big deal to Warner Bros. and AT&T."
Javins previously served as DC's Justice League Group Editor, starting with Scott Snyder's "New Justice" era in June 2018, overseeing Justice League, Justice League Dark, Justice League Odyssey, and The Flash, among others. Her tenure as Justice League Group Editor formally ended with this past June's Justice League #25 - with Batman group editor Jamie S. Rich taking over those titles for the time being.
Javins originally joined DC in 2014, editing Convergence and then the Hanna-Barbera and WildStorm titles. Prior to her time at DC, Javins authored Stalking the Wild Dik-Dik: One Woman's Solo Misadventures Across Africa a 3-D world tour children's atlas for Chronicle Books. She contributed to National Geographic's 500 Journeys of a Lifetime and Rough Guides' Ultimate Experiences. From 2006 to 2013 she served as Editor-in-Chief of the Kuwait-based Teshkeel Media, and before that had a notable editorial career at Marvel which included Earth X and Marvel's color reprints of Katshuhuro Otomo's Akira.
