Eddie Berganza is a Group Editor for DC Comics.

Berganza was born in Guatemala and moved to New York City at seven years old. He learned to speak English by watching reruns of the Adventures of Superman television series starring George Reeves, often shouting 'Look, up in the sky!' without explanation, leaving the surrounding adults perplexed by his outbursts.

Berganza had the intention of becoming a publicist before he started a college internship with Starlog where he first met Bob Greenberger. Greenberger helped Berganza get his first job at DC comics in the copy room.

Eddie Berganza has been recognized for his work with nominations for the Comics Buyer's Guide Fan Award for Favorite Editor in 1998,[1] 1999,[2] and 2000.[3] He has written for such DC titles as Supergirl, Titans and Wednesday Comics, and edited numerous comics (such as Blackest Night) and is editing the year-long maxi-series Brightest Day with Rex Ogle and Adam Schlagman.

On December 1, 2010, Berganza was promoted to Executive Editor of DC Comics by Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras.[4]

By April 10, 2012, Berganza was demoted to Group Editor of DC Comics after an alleged "series of indiscretions".[5]
