Barajas Named Sales Manager at Oni Press
Henry Barajas, formerly director of operations at independent comics publisher Top Cow, has been named sales manager at the indie comics house Oni Press, effective today.
Barajas is also a noted comics writer and the author of the graphic memoir La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo (with art by J. Gonzo and published by Image Comics), the story of the life of his grandfather, Ramon Jaurique, who worked to organize Mexican, American, Yaqui communities in the Tucson area.
Barajas said, "I'm excited to join Oni Press and their wonderful, spirited team. As someone who has grown up reading comics published by Oni, it's an honor and a dream come true."
Oni Press senior v-p of sales and marketing Alex Segura said that Barajas would complement “the talented, dedicated, experts” already working on the Oni Press marketing team. “Bringing in someone like Henry to oversee our relationships with comic shops, Diamond, and our digital partners makes an all-star group even better.”
