History of Jim Valentino in Comic Book Art

Jim Valentino began is comic book career in the late 1970s, working for various publishing companies, and in the mid-eighties created his own original character, Normalman. Normalman ran for a 13 issue run, published in Aardvark-Vamaheim's series Cerebus for the first eight issues, before moving to Renegade Press for the remaining five issues.

Valentino began working for Marvel Comics on its series Guardians of the Galaxy, where he sat in as both writer and artist. A long-time fan of the series, Valentino pitched the publisher on the possibility of revamping the series while speaking with Marvel's editor-in-chief Tom Defalco at the 1989 WonderCon.

In 1990, the series was relaunched and lasted for 62 issues. While working on that series, Valentino also sat in to draw for select issues of Marvel's What If..? series volume 2 as well.

Velnetino had written out the Guardians of the Galaxy series up to issue 50; however, while working on it he decided to co-found his own publishing company, called Image Comics. The excessive workload forced him to scale back his efforts on the Guardians of the Galaxy series and he was eventually fired as a result.  

Image Comics was co-founded alongside Jim Lee, Erik Larsen, Whilce Portacio, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane and Marc Silverstri in 1992. It was there that Valentino created the series Shadowhawk, for which he served as both writer and artist.

Valentino became the publisher of Image Comics in 1999 and under his guidance, hired on many new young creators like Brian Micheal Bendis and Robert Kirkman.

The company did well for a time, serving as the industry's third-largest publisher under Marvel and DC. Erik Larsen assumed Valentino's position as publisher for Image in 2003.

Valentino has also drawn issues of Avengers and The Silver Surfer.
