Held the day before Emerald City Comic Con, Image took their Image Expo on the road to The Showbox in Seattle for all the creator announcements of upcoming projects. The location was unique and perfect when you consider the many independent and up and coming bands that rolled through The Showbox in the past—plus how long Image has been associated with independent. The Showbox offered a sexy venue with lighting, chandeliers, and was already decorated for Image’s Spring Formal later in the evening. Image Expo would offer many highlights and it was interesting to see when the audience connected most with the presentations during the day.

It’s worth noting that SURGEON X, the book she’s editing, written by Sara Kenney, is funded by a grant from Society Award from Wellcome Trust; perhaps the charitable nature of the project helped lure her to the Image Expo stage.
