Which Political Campaigns Did Image/Skybound Employees Donate To?

So there is a Presidential Election coming and it's time to look at the FEC Filings for political donations for those who declare employment from Image Comics or affiliated studio, Skybound, over the last couple of years. We looked at those from Marvel Comics the other week, and DC Comics earlier this week.

Which Political Campaigns Did Image and Skybound Employees Donate To?
Which Political Campaigns Did Image and Skybound Employees Donate To?
  • Todd McFarlane, Image Comics President, $1200 to Democratic National Committee and ActBlue
  • Robert Kirkman, Image Comics CEO, Chairman of Sjybound, $12,500 to Kamala Harris For The People, Mark Kelly For Senate, Biden  For President, Warren For President and Sara Gideon For Maine
  • Jim Valentino, Vice President, Image Comics – $130 to ActBlue

  • Gabe Reiss, Executive Assistant to CEO – Skybound, $10,000 to Marie Newman For Congress
  • Jon Margolis, Director of Finance & Strategy – $1000 to Win The Era PAC

The rest are much smaller, single, double or triple figures from a lot of employees, with lots of small payments being made to ActBlue is a nonprofit technology organization established in June 2004 that enables left-leaning nonprofits, Democratic candidates, and progressive groups to raise money from individual donors on the Internet by providing them with online fundraising software with a stated mission is to "empower small-dollar donors".  They all look to be supporting Democrat candidates in the upcoming elections. But like DC and unlike Marvel, without the equivalent of an Ike Perlmutter to wipe them all out from the other side. But to be fair, Marvel Chairman Perlmutter's recent $15 million donation to Trump is greater than pretty much the entire entertainment industry's donations to Democrat-related causes in one fell push.
