ComiXology, a digital comics platform, has been hit with a significant wave of layoffs as part of wider Amazon cutbacks. According to Scott McGovern, a project manager at the company, there have been numerous cuts at the company. McGovern estimated that “at least 50% of the staff have been let go. Possibly 75%.” Tia Vasiliou, previously the content policy manager at the company, has also tweeted about her dismissal from the company, as has user experience designer Jake Fuller. Amazon, which owns ComiXology, is expected to impact as many as 18,000 people globally of the company’s estimated 1,544,000 employees in total.
