CBR presents an interview with newly installed Image publisher, Eric Stephenson:
I have a lot of goals, actually, but I think my biggest goal, the one that kind of arches over everything else, is to make more people aware of some of the great comics Image is putting out, getting our books in front of more eyes. And I’d like to do more music-related projects. Our “Belle and Sebastian” anthology did very well for us and our new Tori Amos book looks like it’s going to do even better, and I think there’s just a tremendous opportunity to use that kind of project to turn more people on to comics.
As far as reaching a more mainstream audience – I think getting comics in front of people who might not typically read them is a big part of that, and cross-pollinating comics with other mediums is a great way to accomplish that.
