BERGANZA GONE
Posted: 120617

On the Cover of the Daily News on Saturday, Cleaning Out His Office on Monday

The stories had been out there for at least a year about DC Group Editor Eddie Berganza and his behavior towards women. Liz Gehrlein Marsham reported to DC higher ups that he cornered her, stuck his tongue in her mouth, and attempted to grope her. She left DC six years after the encounter. Former DC editor Janelle Asselin and three other women complained to the Human Resources department in 2010. Their complaint went nowhere so she and the other women left the company. Berganza remained and oversaw the publication of Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman and the current Dark Knights: Metal. And over the years instead of doing anything about his behavior since his books were selling any female who started working for DC was warned to avoid him at all costs. After the 2010 complaint he was supposedly disciplined about his behavior but in 2012 he forced a kiss on a woman at a hotel after a convention. He was demoted but as time passed he was overseeing a major amount of DC titles. And things were fine until the Harvey Weinstein story broke and Berganza ended up on the cover of the New York Daily News alongside Kevin Spacey and others accused of sexual harassment. Berganza was immediately suspended and then fired from DC. According to Bleeding Cool’s Rich Johnston the mood around DC is chaotic. One of the main reasons Berganza lasted so long was his ability to keep the books getting out on time. Some still supported him, some are glad he’s gone and some talent is now willing to work on books he used to oversee. Time will tell what his exit means for a number of titles in 2018.
