Starting February 2007, Image Comics welcomes Kyle Baker to the fold.
“Taking my books to Image was a no-brainer,” Baker says. “First of all, it’s a major publishing house run by cartoonists! And not just any cartoonists, really great cartoonists! I’ve been wanting to join up with these guys since they started the company in the ’90s, and now that the line has expanded to include a wider array of genres such as humor, horror, war and mystery, I feel there’s finally room at Image for Kyle Baker books. The Image folks have a real passion for comics and really go out of their way to do things right, and for a guy like me, there’s nothing more important.”
Image Comics Executive Director Eric Stephenson says, “Kyle is one of the most talented creators in the field, and his work is at turns powerful, at others funny, but always masterfully executed. We couldn’t be prouder than to welcome him to the Image Comics family.”
Kyle Baker’s work with Image Comics starts with Nat Turner Book 2: Revolution, which features the conclusion with Turner’s final stand against the evil institution of slavery. The issue will be available February 14, 2007 for $10.00.
