Image Sets October Release for HERE’S NEGAN Hardcover

Ready For Their Close-Ups: 3 Super-Universes Ready For Your Screens

At this point, despite the occasional think pieces to the contrary, the continued successes of super-hero films and TV series indicate that stories of heroes vs. villains won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. But the bulk of the properties have largely been drawn from either Marvel or DC Comics. Though we’ve seen comic book properties successfully adapted from non-superhero sources recently (“The Walking Dead” and “Preacher” being among the most prominent), when it comes to…

It’s the End of the Road for INVINCIBLE

August Issue of THE WALKING DEAD Fast-Tracked to 2nd Print

August Issue of THE WALKING DEAD Fast-Tracked to 2nd Print

When it comes to independent comic books, The Walking Dead is the five-hundred-pound gorilla in the room. It routinely tops sales charts, even knocking out such industry mainstays as Batman and Spider-Man. As such, it is rare that publisher Image Comics underestimates demand for the title. When a series routinely sells hundreds of thousands of copies, its unusual for the publisher to under-print the monthly release. That’s just what happened with the latest issue. Distributor…

Image Announces DEMONIC New Series From Sebela and Walter

There is a better-than-even chance that this series will wind up making it’s way to television, as most of Kirkman’s work (other than Invincible) has done.

Cory Walker’s Return to INVINCIBLE Sends #127 Back for 2nd Printing

After a three-month hiatus, Robert Kirkman‘s Invincible returned to comic book shops this week along with original series artist Cory Walker. Sales on the book have been strong enough that Image Comics announced today that this month’s issue will be receiving a second printing, due out in stores the first week of May, which is a pretty fast turnaround.

Cory Walker Returns To INVINCIBLE in April

Cory Walker Returns To INVINCIBLE in April

  Invincible is, by many accounts, the single best super hero title published outside of DC or Marvel Comics.

Walker was the original artist for the Invincible series, having penciled both covers and interiors for the first seven-issue arc before moving to covers and back-up features…
