Overdue Media has announced it has hired Jim Demonakos as its Senior Business Strategist. Demonakos was previously my man on the inside at Image Comics, and is also the organizer of the Seattle Emerald City ComiCon. If that doesn’t sound like he has a busy dance card, he is also the owner of the Comic Stop chain of stores in the same area.
Overdue Media is the publisher of the daily comic strip Unshelved a daily strip about the ongoings of librarians created by Bill Barnes and Gene Ambaum. The strip has over 35,000 readers.
“I’m very excited to be coming on board with Unshelved,” Demonakos said in a prepared statment. “I love its dry wit and spot-on observations about people, books, and retail environments. The characters and the library setting have a very broad appeal, and I look forward to helping tap into its mainstream potential.”
