DC Comics Fires Eddie Berganza Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

An email from the office of Diane Nelson was sent out to DC Talent to notify them of the news.

On November 10, 2017, Buzzfeed published an article titled 'The Dark Side of Comics.' In it, numerous women who formerly worked for DC Comics detailed the sexual harassment they were subjected to by Eddie Berganza, one of DC's most prominent editors, having worked on comic book runs and characters like Brightest Day, Blackest Night, Superman and Titans.

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. "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". Following another complaint in 2012, Berganza was demoted to group editor. He was named executive editor later that year. On Monday, the company announced that Berganza's employment at DC Entertainment has been terminated.

According to BuzzFeed, Berganza "developed a reputation for making offensive jokes or line-crossing comments in the presence of or at the expense of women". And while that is slowly changing, with the popularity of Wonder Woman and women-led comics from the likes of Gabby Rivera and Rainbow Rowell, the Berganza story is clear and undeniable proof that we still have a very long way to go. Cartoonist Joan Hilty also said Berganza kissed and groped her at the same bar in the early 2000s.

DC Comics launched a review and suspended Berganza on Saturday before firing him today. In the end, DC Comics made the right decision, but many are asking why this didn't happen sooner. She told BuzzFeed that all the women she knew who were involved in the complaint eventually left DC.

In response to this news DC said in a statement: 'DC and Warner Bros are unequivocally committed to cultivating a work environment of dignity and respect, one that is safe and harassment free for all employees'.
