Eric Stephenson, publisher & chief creative officer of Image Comics, is excited to welcome Jim Viscardi to the team. Viscardi, who has a passion for comics and a strong work ethic, will serve as the VP of Business Development at Image Comics. Before joining Image, Viscardi worked at Marvel Entertainment, where he focused on marketing, communications, and retailer relations. He was involved in major events such as the 2012 Avengers vs. X-Men event and the 2011 introduction of Miles Morales as Spider-Man.

Viscardi expressed his excitement about joining Image Comics, a company known for its support of creator-owned publishing and commitment to artistic freedom.

Image Comics was founded in 1992 by seven top Marvel artists who left to form their own company. The key idea behind Image Comics was that comic book creators could retain ownership of the characters they created.

With Viscardi joining the team, Image Comics continues to push boundaries and drive success in the comic book industry.
