Jim Viscardi appointed as Vice President of Business Development at Image Comics

Eric Stephenson, the publisher and chief creative officer of Image Comics, has hired Jim Viscardi as their VP of Business Development. Viscardi is well-known in the comic book industry for co-founding comibook.com in 2015 and selling it to CBS Interactive. At Image, he will report to Stephenson and work on fostering creative independence and strategic business growth that benefits partners in the Direct Market and beyond.

Viscardi expressed his excitement about joining Image Comics, emphasizing the importance of pushing boundaries, inspiring innovation, and amplifying the voices of creators worldwide. Before working at 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 admired Viscardi’s passion for comics even though their paths did not cross earlier. Now that they are working together at Image Comics, both are looking forward to collaborating on exciting projects.

Image Comics was founded in 1992 by seven top Marvel artists who wanted comic book creators to retain ownership of their characters. Over the years, 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 while pushing boundaries in the industry.
