Image Comics, the company famously born from an artists revolt, is now the place to find some of the best writers in comic books!
In 1992, seven of the biggest artists in the business - Todd McFarlane, Rob Liefeld, Jim Lee, Erik Larsen, Marc Silvestri, Jim Valentino, While Portacio - left Marvel Comics to form Image Comics, and nothing would be the same again.
More than 25 years later, Image Comics has grown from a place where flashy art ruled the day to a haven for some of the best and most innovative writers in comic books. This new emphasis on writer and story is personified by the newest partner at Image Comics, Robert Kirkman.
This week iFanboy takes a look at just some of the offerings from this "new" Image. Here are the books that they are most interested in:
From Robert Kirkman: The Walking Dead, Invincible, The Astounding WOlf-Man, and Brit
From Jay Faerber: Dynamo 5, Noble Causes, and Gemini
From Joe Casey: Godland, Nixon's Pals, Charltan Ball
From Joe Kelly: Four Eyes, I Kill Giants
From B. Clay Moore: Hawaiian Dick
From Jonathan Hickman: The Nightly News, Pax Romana, Red Mass For Mars, and Transhuman
From Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie: Phonogram
From Jamie McKelvie: Suburban Glamour
And finally, the massive tome that is Comic Book Tattoo
As you might be able to tell from the above works, Image Comics is one company that defies classification.
