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.

The latest career to get decapitated on the railroad tracks of the allegation express is comic book editor Eddie Berganza, who was sacked by DC Comics after years of complaints filed against Berganza for sexual harassment.

"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", the company said in a statement.

One day after Berganza's suspension was made public, DC chose to fire him, telling Buzzfeed that the company was "committed to eradicating harassment".

Fellow editor at DC Joan Hilty said Berganza "grabbed her and repeatedly tried to pull her in for a kiss" in the early 2000s. And then in 2010, former DC editor Janelle Asselin organized a group of employees to file a joint complaint to HR about Berganza.

DC has fired veteran editor Eddie Berganza following allegations of sexual assault by former employees of the company. But for many, many comic book creators and fans, that wasn't almost enough. He was named executive editor later that year.

While there's little ambiguity in the incredibly extensive report that Buzzfeed put together about Berganza's actions, the larger question is what the blowback will be on DC Comics. But for the victims, as well as the larger crowd of women who are noted to have avoided work at DC because of the well-known threat of Berganza, this will hopefully be a fresh start. "There will be a prompt and yet careful review into next steps as it relates to the allegations against him, and the concerns our talent, employees and fans have shared".

DC Entertainment initially issued a statement in response to the Buzzfeed article, which was soon followed by an announcement of his suspension from DC Entertainment.

After the 2012 WonderCon incident, Berganza reportedly apologized to DC's all-male staff for his behavior and pledged to change.
