Image will be celebrating it’s 25th anniversary this coming February with 15 tribute covers from some of their most iconic titles over the years!
February 1st will mark the exact anniversary date way back in 1992 when Image Comics came on the scene and ushered in a new era of comics. They also provided some welcomed competition to the other publishers out there and paved the way for indie creators to bring us new content!
“One of the great things about celebrating our 25th anniversary is that it creates an opportunity for us to look back at over two decades of history-making comics and showcase some of the wonderful work that made Image what it is today,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “Everyone in the Image family is a fan at heart, and this month’s tribute variants give the participating creators a chance to show their admiration for some of comics’ greatest creator-owned triumphs by putting their own unique spin on classic images from that rich and varied past for a collection of covers as fun as they are stunning.”
