DC Entertainment has promoted Aria Moffley to the position of Vice President of Creative Affairs, reporting to DC’s President/Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.
“Aria is an unbelievably talented leader within my Creative Affairs team and her development expertise and vast knowledge of DC has been key to the success we’ve had with the Studio,” said Johns. “As DC’s slates continue to rapidly expand I’m excited to have Aria by my side developing even more DC projects.”
Moffly now oversees DC Enterainment’s various properties in film, television, and animation, including its various live-action shows as well as the “DC Super Hero Girls” brand.
10-year Dark Horse veteran Chris Gaslin has been promoted to be the company’s director of Product Development. Gaslin, who has worked since 2006 as part of the sales department and later a manager in Production Development, will now oversee project management, scheduling management, budgeting, sourcing, and new product creation.
“As Dark Horse’s product development efforts have grown and matured over the years, so has Chris Gaslin’s skill and expertise,” said David Scroggy, vice president of Product Development. “His successful supervision of important new collectible lines like The Witcher and Halo, as well as his leadership in the management and coordination of ongoing projects such as Game of Thrones, has been a big part of what keeps Dark Horse Deluxe out in front in the marketplace. These management skills extend to the intra- and interdepartmental workings as well. Chris keeps us looking ahead, and it is rewarding to see him take this step forward.”

“This is a great opportunity to give the talented creators of the graphic novel and comics community a platform where they can showcase how vibrant and diverse the medium can be,” Kaye added. “We’ll be able to show those new to this form of storytelling just how much it has to offer.”
