Eddie Berganza is Superman's New Boss
By Beth Hannan Rimmels
Eddie Berganza, editor of DC Universe titles such as the Superman titles, Wonder Woman and Young Justice, has been promoted to Group Editor.
Berganza joined DC in 1991 as an editorial clerk in the editorial administration department. He later switched to the DC Universe editorial group as an assistant editor working on Green Lantern and Legion of Superheroes, among others. He was promoted to editor in 1994 and later to senior editor in 2000.
"Denny O' Neil always told us that the best way to make your job easier is to hire the best people, and they' ll make you look good," said Berganza. " I owe my promotions to them - guys from Beau Smith to Dan Jurgens to Phil Jimenez to Todd Nauck and Jeph Loeb, as well as the current creative teams on my books - especially Joe Kelly. There are just so many people I owe for this that I hope I' m not insulting you by leaving you out - if I do, I' ll cut you some slack on your deadlines."
"Eddie has moved steadily up the ranks with his innovative taste and sheer ability to produce a lot of work with a smile on his face," said Mike Carlin, vice president and executive editor for the DC Universe. "His most recent successes involve steering the lives of the denizens of Metropolis through the popular line of DC' s Superman comics, a tough job that Eddie handles while supervising a team of editors and still doing a full load of his own side-projects as well."
Berganza' s upcoming projects include the 12-issue miniseries Superman: Metropolis and the ongoing series Superman/Batman, Outsiders and Teen Titans.
