Image Comics has appointed Jim Viscardi as its new vice president of business development, effective immediately. In his new role, Viscardi will be responsible for overseeing audience growth and building new business relationships for the company.

Viscardi co-founded the popular comics news site Comicbook.com in 2015 and managed editorial strategy, content creation, video production, and social media growth. The site was acquired by CBS Interactive, now Paramount Global, in 2018 and remains a top source of news for the comic industry.

Viscardi expressed his excitement about joining Image Comics and contributing to the company’s legacy of fostering creative independence while driving strategic business growth. He emphasized the importance of pushing boundaries, inspiring innovation, and amplifying the voices of creators worldwide. “I am thrilled to be joining such a talented team at Image Comics,” he said. “I look forward to working with Eric Stephenson and our colleagues to build on this company’s successes while exploring new opportunities.”

Stephenson added that he has known Viscardi for around a decade and is pleased to finally have the opportunity to work together. He praised Viscardi’s work ethic, passion for comics, and unique perspective on business development that he believes will serve him well in his new role at Image Comics.
