Image Expo Adds Guests and Variants
By now, I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you about the highly anticipated Image Expo on January 9th,
2014 in San Francisco. For those of you on the fence about going, here are a few updates that might help you make up your mind.
There have been three additional guests confirmed for attendance and added to the lineup: writer of the Saviors
James Robinson, artist of Outcast
Paul Azaceta, and writer of Ghosted
Joshua Williamson. Outcast
has yet to be released, but with Robert Kirkman as writer, it may be one of Image’s most anticipated upcoming series yet.
Some exclusive variants have also been added for premium ticket holders, but which will also be on-sale at the event: The Walking Dead #1
full color cover by Nick Dragotta, The Walking Dead #1
black and white variant cover by Nick Dragotta, Black Science #1
with a cover by Sanford Greene, Sex Criminals #1
with a cover by Chip Zdarsky, Ghosted #6
black and white variant by Matteo Scalera, Manifest Destiny #3
black and white variant by Matthew Roberts, and Prophet #42
with a cover by Brandon Graham.
The three new guests bring the total number of creators to twelve, and what an exciting list it is. The other attendees are as follows: Image Comics partner and the Walking Dead
creator Robert Kirkman, Eisner Award winner and writer of Sex Criminals
Sam Matt Fraction, writer of Black
Science and Deadly Class
Rick Remender, writer of Pretty Deadly
Kelly Sue DeConnick, Eisner Award winning writer and artist of Prophet
and Multiple Warheads
Brandon Graham, artist of East of West
Nick Dragotta, writer of Morning Glories
Nick Spencer, writer of Glory
Joe Keatinge, and artist of Deadly Class
Just a glance at what’s expected is a little reminder of how massive of a year Image Comics has had—not that we need reminding. Tickets are still on sale of the January 9th
event, but are expected to sell out quickly.
