Celebrating 20 years in publishing, Image Comics gets it’s very own convention! And what’s a convention without exclusive variant covers? In this press release Image shares a first look at the variants available later this month! The star-studded event is set to take place later in the month and will feature many of the biggest names in the industry, all looking to promote the idea of independent publishing. Given the success Image Comics has had following in that ideal, to see them attached to an event like this is a natural move.
Attendees of Image Expo, taking place February 24, 25, and 26 in Oakland, California will get something else in addition to excellent programming, array of exhibiting publishers and artists, and face time with their favorite collectors — the chance to get six comics with convention-exclusive covers.
The first 5,000 attendees of Image Expo will receive a free copy of THE WALKING DEAD #94 by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, and Cliff Rathburn with an exclusive cover picturing Michonne, katana at her side, atop an intertwined mass of zombies.
An exclusive GLORY #23 featuring a new cover by Ross Campbell and the slogan “FIGHT CENSORSHIP” will benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and will be available only at the CBLDF booth.
Other exclusive covers are THE DARKNESS #100, featuring a sketch cover by Marc Silvestri; ARTIFACTS #14 with art by Stjepan Sejic and a blank back cover for attendees’ favorite artists to sketch on, THIEF OF THIEVES #1 with art by Shawn Martinbrough, and CHEW #24 with art by Rob Guillory.
The Image Expo convention-exclusive variant covers will be available in limited quantities.
