As Editor-in-Chief, C.B. Cebulski oversees all day-to-day editorial and creative aspects of Marvel’s publishing division since he was appointed in November 2017. This includes driving the overall editorial creative vision, shaping the larger story direction of the Marvel Comics line-up, and bringing to Marvel the world’s best and brightest writers and artists. Additionally, Mr. Cebulski is furthering Marvel’s efforts to expand the publishing division internationally, helping forge partnerships and create original projects with Panini, Scholastic, Shueisha, Abrams, Sigongsa and Naver/Webtoons.
A lifelong comic book and film fan, Cebulski always knew working in entertainment was his destiny. After graduating Tufts University, Cebulski traveled to Japan, where he lived, studied and worked for over four years, with constant focus on the art of manga & anime. After forming strong relationships with several Japanese comic creators, he returned to the United States to become one of the first American editors to ever work directly with Japanese manga artists to create product specifically for Western audiences. It was at this time that Cebulski realized he had found a mission in life: to help give international artists, not just those from Japan but from all corners of the globe, the opportunity to create characters, tell stories and work in the American entertainment industry.
After years of editing in the Japanese, European and American comic book markets, Cebulski fulfilled a childhood dream in 2002 when he joined Marvel Comics, where he served as an Editor and Talent Coordinator and continued to bring more global talent to the mainstream comic market. He’s helped Marvel’s editors’ line up and hundreds of international creators to write and illustrate original comics based on the company’s pantheon of world famous characters, like The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man and Iron Man.
In 2011, Cebulski was promoted to Vice President – International Development & Brand Management, where he began representing the Marvel brand and businesses worldwide. Traveling from country to country, month after month, he explored new opportunities for Marvel to expand their creative interests in both emerging and established markets. Cebulski also continued searching for the best talent the world has to offer to fill their many artistic needs across all the company’s lines of business, including animation, games and movies.
In 2015, Cebulski assumed the role of VP, Marvel Brand Management and Development, Asia and relocated to Shanghai, China. In this position, Cebulski worked hand-in-hand with the Disney teams across Asia, leveraging his knowledge of Marvel to help expand the brand across the region, and develop local content with local creators to grow Marvel’s roster of global heroes.
