DC Comics has fired Eddie Berganza, editor accused of sexual misconduct

“We are committed to eradicating harassment.”

Days after five women publicly came forward accusing DC Comics editor Eddie Berganza of sexual assault, DC has announced Berganza has been fired.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

In a statement given to The Hollywood Reporter, DC Comics said the following:

Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have terminated the employment of DC Comics Group Editor Eddie Berganza. 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.”

"We are committed to eradicating harassment."

While this is a welcome action from DC, it is disappointing that it took so long to get to this point. According to the BuzzFeed report, stories of Berganza’s misconduct have been widely known in the comic creator community for years, and even after these allegations came forward, DC announced yesterday that they were suspending Berganza rather than firing them. Apparently, after mulling it over, they have decided to cut ties with the former Superman Group Editor entirely.
