Image Expo is today and the announcement segment just wrapped up. The event was streamed live from Twitch and thanks to Twitter, our own ears, and even official PR here’s a list of the new projects and announcements: • Image’s Eric Stephenson kicked things off with a keynote and mentioned big sales in 2017, comics […]

Image Expo kicks off on Wednesday February 21st – just ahead of the annual ComicsPRO meeting, also in Portland, OR. So it’s a four-day fest of publishing information.

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.
Well that was a heck of a day for Image Expo. The return of the Batgirl of Burnside team with motorcycles, and of the award-winning Azzarello/Risso team with Moonshine were big, but the appearance of Karen Berger brought down Twitter, and I’m sure, the house in Seattle. Berger is a genuine comics legend, and while editing one book is just a smallish thing, just having her back on deck feels right somehow. 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.
Come on, you know how the story goes. You put on Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. You cue up The Wizard of Oz. To your amazement, they match up, just like the forum post said they would! If that’s true, maybe there really was more to Kurt Cobain’s death. Or John Lennon’s. Indeed, maybe there […]
