Eric Stephenson, the publisher and chief creative officer at Image Comics, is excited to welcome Jim Viscardi to the team as the VP of Business Development. Viscardi, a well-known figure in the comic book industry, co-founded comibook.com in 2015 and helped it become a prominent platform. At Image, he will be responsible for pushing boundaries, inspiring innovation, and amplifying the voices of creators worldwide.

Before joining Image Comics, Viscardi worked at Marvel Entertainment where he was involved in marketing, communications, and retailer relations. Notable projects during his time at Marvel include the 2012 Avengers vs. X-Men event and the introduction of Miles Morales as Spider-Man in 2011. Stephenson mentioned that he first met Viscardi around a decade ago and admired his passion for comics. Despite their paths not crossing earlier, both are now looking forward to collaborating at Image Comics.

Image Comics was founded in 1992 by seven top Marvel artists who wanted comic book creators to retain ownership of the characters they created. Over the decades, Image has become known for its unique titles such as Spawn, Invincible, and Saga. With Viscardi now on board, the company is likely to continue its tradition of supporting creativity and empowering artists.
