'We take all claims of harassment very seriously and investigate them promptly, ' it said.

Multiple women, including former comics journalist and former editor Janelle Asselin, are accusing DC Comics editor Eddie Berganza of sexual harassment and assault, BuzzFeed reports.

Berganza worked at DC Comics for 25 years, most recently contributing to the event series Dark Nights: Metal. Before he was sacked, he was overseeing Dark Knights: Metal, a special series that is reportedly one of DC's biggest-selling titles now.

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

DC Comics and Warner Bros. have parted ways with longtime editor Eddie Berganza after he was suspended over the weekend.

The third woman, who wants to remain anonymous, said Berganza forcibly kissed her at a comics convention in March 2012. He had, during his time with the company, been Group Editor on the Superman family of titles, as well as Executive Editor over DC's superhero line as a whole.


Eddie Berganza, a high-ranking editor at DC Comics, was sacked Monday following a BuzzFeed News report detailing years of sexual harassment allegations against him.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, DC Entertainment said, "We are committed to eradicating harassment and ensuring that all employees, as well as our freelance community, are aware of our policies, are comfortable reporting any concerns and feel supported by our Company".

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. "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".

In a 2012 email to his fellow editors Berganza wrote: 'You have my word, I will not allow this to happen again. But for the victims, as well as the larger crowd of women who are noted to have avoided work at DC because of the well-known threat of Berganza, this will hopefully be a fresh start.
