DC Comics Fires Eddie Berganza Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

Eddie Berganza Fired DC Comics

Berganza, an editor for a quarter-century at DC Comics, has been fired, DC Entertainment and parent company Warner Bros. announced Monday.

Within comics culture, Berganza's alleged behavior has for years been an open secret, the subject of blunt gossip and open speculation.

Following these allegations DC took action and changed Berganza's job title from executive editor back to group editor.

The third woman, who wants to remain anonymous, said Berganza forcibly kissed her at a comics convention in March 2012. He now oversees editing of the Superman and Green Lantern titles, as well as the current Dark Nights: Metal event. Rumors of inappropriate conduct by Berganza have circulated openly for roughly a decade, and several former employees came forward last week in a story published by Buzzfeed alleging a pattern of sexual harassment.

The people who spoke out have a point. The woman herself later said she was too scared to report the coercion, but allegations surfaced in a Bleeding Cool article, which initially did not name Berganza.

She added he attempted to grope her later on in the evening too. BuzzFeed's article suggests that Berganza was the unnamed superior.

He was sentenced to another five months in prison in 2014 after he violated his probation by performing out of state. Tacopina later added that Meek is "a strong kid" and his community will stop at nothing to ensure justice is served.

"By the time I left", Marsham said of her time at DC Comics, "I was really demoralized".

Asselin described Berganza's promotion to executive editor as 'massively demoralising'.

Marsham says that when Berganza began overseeing books she was editing, she withdrew from the editing process altogether to avoid him - with no intervention from her supervisors.

The women who made complaints against Berganza seven years ago have all sense moved on from the company.

DC had already punished Berganza at least once in the past over his behavior. He was demoted to group editor, but the incident was not publicly acknowledged by him or DC. Finally, DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson issued a statement indicating that Mr. Berganza has been let go. "There will be a prompt and yet careful review into next steps as it relates to the allegations against him, and the concerns our talent, employees and fans have shared".

Last week, a Buzzfeed expose revealed that DC Comics had a villain in its midst.
