Erik Larsen is stepping down as Image Publisher; Eric Stephenson will be replacing him. Comic Book Resources has the news and an interview with Larsen. (And isn’t it interesting that they broke the story over Newsarama? That’s happening more often.) It seems that the reason is just that it’s time for a change, and Larsen would like to spend more time working on his comics.
Is this the first time that Image has had as Publisher someone who wasn’t one of the original seven founders? Before Larsen, it was Valentino, but I don’t recall before that.
Update: CBR has also posted an interview with Stephenson in which he seems to be facing the challenges of the future clear-eyed and with intelligence.
