Here’s the lowdown on what went transpired during Friday’s Image Panel at the New York Comic Con 2009.
- New graphic novels and series on the way from Image include
- Killing Demons (Christopher Yost)
- Dead@17: Afterbirth (see previous announcement)
- Power Up
- The Walking Dead Compendium (collecting issues #1-#48)
- Imperial (Steven Seagle with art by Marc dos Santos)
- Two new Dawn projects by Joseph Michael Linsner
- Image also announced new versions of the early Spawn trades that will be relabeled as Spawn: Origins – it’s like reliving the 90’s all over again.
- Robert Kirkman was not at Friday’s panel – he is probably trying to catch up on the backlog of delayed issues.
- Several of the panel members stated they came to Image as it allows them to do the work they want to do.
- Steven Seagle and Mike Allred might team up on a future project that is still being kicked around.
- Rob Liefeld announced the Armageddon Now original graphic novel will arrive this year followed by Armageddon Now: Jada in May.
- Invincible #60 will be 40 pages in length.
- Image United sounds like an interesting project, where each creator will be drawing their own character in the series.Â Sounds like a cool jam piece book!
- The indication from Rob Liefeld was that Jim Lee was indeed working on the Image United project as well.
Quote of the Panel
â€œYes, some of you may think Iâ€˜m a douchebag, but Iâ€™ve done it my own way for 20 years,â€ Liefeld said to chuckles from the audience, â€œAnd thatâ€™s the way to go.â€
– Rob Liefeld
