12. Horvath and Turner join Superfan Promotions

Over the years I have been asked any a time, "is there a good indie publicist for comics?" and I always racked my brain. There have been a few good people, but they usually get hired by companies.

And they are so good, they are pending, hiring Pamela Horvath (above left) Ilana Turner as director of publicity and publicity coordinator respectively.

I think if you're going to invest money in your business at a time like this, investing in new employees who work directly with the people who buy your products is a pretty smart move. Here's the new faces:
