Eric Stephenson, the publisher and chief creative officer of Image Comics, has welcomed Jim Viscardi to the company as its new VP of Business Development. Viscardi is a well-known figure in the comic book industry, having co-founded comibook.com in 2015 which was later sold to CBS Interactive. At the site, he managed editorial strategy and helped it become a prominent platform.

Before joining Image Comics, Viscardi worked at Marvel Entertainment where he was involved in marketing, communications, and retailer relations. Noteworthy 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.

Viscardi expressed his excitement about joining Image Comics and contributing to the legacy of fostering creative independence and strategic business growth that benefits partners in the Direct Market and beyond. He emphasized the importance of pushing boundaries, inspiring innovation, and amplifying the voices of creators worldwide. With Viscardi on board, Image Comics is likely to continue its tradition of supporting creativity and empowering artists.
