Skybound Entertainment Hires Chris Ryall to Editorial Division
LOS ANGELES, CA (April 12, 2018) – Skybound Entertainment has hired Chris Ryall to work alongside Senior Vice President and Editor-in-Chief Sean Mackiewicz in an effort to expand Skybound’s publishing line. Previously, Chris worked as the Editor-in-Chief and Chief Creative Officer of IDW Publishing, where he set the creative direction and publishing plan for IDW’s comic book and graphic novel division.
“As a fan of genre material and comic books all around, working with Skybound Entertainment is a natural fit for me,” said Chris Ryall. “I’m excited to work with the team in place at Skybound and expand an already phenomenal library of content.”
“Chris’ impeccable track record as an editor reflects the quality of stories that we aim for with all Skybound projects,” said Sean Mackiewicz. “He is an ideal addition to our team as our comic book slate continues to grow.”
“You’d have a hard time finding someone more well-liked in comics than Chris,” said Robert Kirkman. “His mark on the comics industry is undeniable. I’ve admired his work from afar for many years and am thrilled for him to be part of the Skybound team.”
Titles currently published at Skybound include The Walking Dead, Oblivion Song, Outcast, Gasolina, Redneck, and more. Skybound’s editorial team also recently expanded outside of the comic books realm and launched the Skybound Books imprint, in partnership with Simon & Schuster’s Atria Books.
