We're pleased to announce two new editors have joined the io9 team. We've given them the brain implants and are slowly taking control of all their thoughts. Please welcome Marc Bernardin and Cyriaque Lamar.


You probably recognize Cyriaque's name from all those posts he's been doing for us for the past month while he patiently waited for us to introduce him without putting the word fnord over his name. He says, "I've written for Cracked and Nerve and I'm just happy to be on board." Cyriaque started out at io9 as an intern, and we're glad to have him on in a more permanent (and paid) role. He'll be your weekend editor, and serve as the informal comics czar at io9, which means he has to dress like this every day.

Marc's name may also be familiar to you. He's been a guest writer here before and we were incredibly pleased when our mind control ray worked on him and he agreed to join us as an editor. (Now that he has the brain implant, it's all smooth sailing.) Here's Marc's official bio:

Marc Bernardin has had a somewhat scattershot career that has included tours of duty as a private investigator (okay, a very short tour), an award-winning screenwriter, a managing editor of Starlog magazine, and a consulting editor for Fangoria magazine. Most recently, he was a senior editor for Entertainment Weekly and EW.com. He's currently a comic book writer, having co-authored - with Adam Freeman - Monster Attack Network (AiT/Planetlar), The Highwaymen (Wildstorm), Push (Wildstorm), Pilot Season: Genius (Top Cow), and The Authority (Wildstorm). Some of those books are being adapted for the screen, while others are content to look quite handsome on a shelf. All of the following are true: He has sat in Captain Kirk's chair, shaken Miranda Zero's hand, and been flipped off by Lucy Lawless.


Welcome Cyriaque and Marc! Be sure you download those weekly updates to your brainware!
