First, a farewell: I started Hero Complex in 2008 because it was a place where I could write and read about entertainment of the fantastic and the new frontiers of spectacle imagination. It turns out that a lot of people out there wanted the same thing out of a website, and this one has been a success by every possible measure. The brand has even stretched into live events, print editions and an online talk show.

It’s been a tremendous ride but, after 21 terrific years as a mild-mannered reporter at the great Los Angeles Times, it was time to look for a new challenge.

That doesn’t mean Hero Complex is going away. Far from it, the site’s success is the work of a team, not an individual. Gina McIntyre, my editor during the site’s greatest success, is expanding her role. She’ll be the new lead writer and editor of Hero Complex. She’ll be joined by a squad of familiar names that our regular readers know very well. Rebecca Keegan, Noelene Clark, Jevon Phillips, Patrick Day and Susan King are among the contributors.

I consider the next chapter of Hero’s success to be essential reading and I’m confident you will too.
