From the official Marvel press release:
Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce that Nick Lowe will be the new Senior Editor of Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man related titles beginning this February.
After leading the X-Men through a Schism, a Revolution and a Battle, Nick Lowe is setting his sights on the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Working closely with the creative powerhouses of Dan Slott, Mark Waid, Warren Ellis, Humberto Ramos, Giuseppe Camuncoli and many more, Nick Lowe will be shepherding the books of the Spider-office as Marvel moves forward in this exhilarating year for Peter Parker and his amazing friends.
“I’ve loved Spider-Man since I stole my brother’s Spidey comics back in the 90’s!” exclaims Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “It’s a huge honor to be working on Marvel’s most popular character. After ten years (!) I’m going to miss the X-Men, but I’m excited to join the incredible group of men and women working on books in the Spider-Man Office.”
“[Writer] Dan Slott is weaving an intricate web for Spider-Man in 2014, and I’m excited to see what Senior Editor Nick Lowe — a veteran of the X-Men titles — contributes to the line,” says EIC Axel Alonso.
Nick Lowe is just another outstanding talent continuing his visionary work with Marvel during the hugely successful All-New Marvel NOW! initiative – featuring bold new launches from some of the industry’s hottest creators.
Good for him! Let’s see where Spidey goes with Lowe as the new HGIC (Head Geek-in-Charge).
