Talk about some stunning Friday night news! At ComicsPRO tonight, Image Comics announced that they would be partnering up with Diamond to launch Image+, a monthly magazine that will ship with the long running PREVIEWS catalog.
Clocking in at 64 pages each month, each of the first 12 issues of the magazine will feature four pages of an exclusive WALKING DEAD comic story, written by Robert Kirkman and illustrated by Charlie Adlard. The comic will tell Negan’s origin story, with its format harkening back to old newspaper serial novels.
Including the comic, each issue of Image+ will clock in at 64 pages. Magazine features include interviews with Image creators, spotlight features, and industry editorials. David Brothers, Image Branding Manager, will curate content for the magazine.
The first Image+ magazine will ship with May’s PREVIEWS magazine. While free if purchased with PREVIEWS, Image+ magazine can also be purchased separately for $1.99.
