In July, news broke that Archie Comics was suing Nancy Silberkleit, co-CEO, in an attempt to prevent her from coming back to its headquarters. Now, Robot 6 reports that, as suspected, Silberkleit is claiming that “Goldwater, son of Archie Comics co-founder John L. Goldwater, is a chauvinist who’s attempting to drive her out of the company.” Her lawyer has filed a motion to dismiss the Archie lawsuit, with a hearing due August 16.
If one was to pick an American comic company that would be the site of accusations about sexism and a nasty battle over corporate control, Archie would have been the last choice for many. Perhaps this is a sign that “co-CEO” roles and shared responsibilities are very difficult to manage evenly.
