Sd145WonderconImage has a big show planned with a WonderCon Exclusive edition of SAVAGE DRAGON #145 which features the most popular president currently in charge of the US taking on a dirty rotten terrorist. Won’t someone save us a copy?

This weekend thousands of comic fans will flood San Francisco’s Moscone Hall for WonderCon 2009 to meet their favorite creators and the publisher who brings it better than any other, the Bay Area’s very own Image Comics!

“It’s always fun to travel to conventions, but nothing beats the hometown show,” Image Comics Founder and Illustrator of the WonderCon Exclusive SAVAGE DRAGON #145 Erik Larsen said. “It may not be the biggest, but it’s certainly one of the best! Plus, it’s a particularly important con for me as this week marks the big relaunch of SAVAGE DRAGON! I’m excited to hear what the fans have to say about the big issue!”

Throughout the weekend Larsen along with VIKING’s Ivan Brandon, ELEPHANTMEN’s Richard Starkings & Moritat, DARKNESS’ Michael Broussard and Top Cow Productions Publisher Filip Sablik and will be available at the Image Comics booth signing autographs and selling exclusive items! However, the convention doesn’t truly begin until Friday’s Image Comics Show at 3-4 PM in room 103 featuring Larsen, Starkings, THE GREAT UNKNOWN’s Duncan Rouleau and Champions Online writer John Layman with the first word on an all-new project! In addition, the already much coveted SAVAGE DRAGON #145 variant featuring President Barack Obama taking on Osama Bin Laden will be available starting Friday for a very limited amount of time with a select few fans randomly winning a copy during the Friday panel. If that’s not enough GODLAND’s Joe Casey, PHERONE’s Viktor Kalvachev, NEW BRIGHTON ARCHELOGICAL SOCIETY’s Mark Andrew Smith and many more will stop by the booth!

Image Comics can be found at booth #407 during Wondercon, February 27 – March 1st 2009, taking place in the San Francisco Moscone Center.

  1. In fairness to Bluewater Productions, who kept getting called on the carpet for incorrect depictions of the American flag on the covers of various comics-about-politicians they’d released, I feel compelled to note that the flag in this design isn’t quite right either.

    It’s difficult to tell from this image, but at the very least. the flag here shows only 5 “short” stripes next to the blue starfield canton; the real U.S. flag has 7 short stripes next to the canton, and 6 full-length stripes. I can’t quite tell if the flag depicted shows or suggests the correct number of stars and stripes.

    The U.S. flag is a complicated, non-intuitive design, so we perhaps should cut folks some slack in depicting it. (On the other hand, it’s not as if ample reference material is hard to find.) At least Image’s press release is gramatically correct and typo free!

  2. Imagine the reaction to a civer with GWB doing that.

    Or Batman. Freaking fascists!

    But it’s cool if Obama does it I’m sure.

  4. So, let me get this straight – all of a sudden Image Comics officially declares Wonder Con ‘their hometown show’ after what – living it up twenty or so years in the O.C. ??
