25th Anniversary of Image Comics

Twenty-five years ago, on Feb 1, 1992, nine leading comic book men joined together and started their own company and change the landscape of the comic book and graphic novel industry. They ensured that the creators kept their art as intellectual properties instead of publishing companies like Marvel and DC owning them. February 1, 2017, will be Image Comics Day globally. Go out and help celebrate the accomplishment by meeting the writers and artist of Image Comics. A list of who and where is below.
