Image Comics made a couple of announcements over the last couple of days, so once again, here’s your rapid-fire roundup of news from the company.  For fans, take the jump to see what’s ahead for Invincible, especially with the announcement that Atom Eve isn’t dead, but is very naked.

  • There’s a new Tank Girl one-shot on the way
  • Joe Hill will write an upcoming Frank Frazetta project
  • Choker is a new project announced for Ben Templesmith
    • Choker is described as a racy crime-noir tale set to debut in 2010
  • Frank Cho and Doug Murray will be teaming for 50-Girls-50, which Cho described as a cross between Star Trek and a stripper show
    • Cho did say there would be a talent search to find an artist for the series, which is kind of odd, as I really expected to see Cho to the work.
    • More information can be found on the Image.com website.
    • The winner will be announced at the Baltimore Con
  • Tyrese Gibson was there hyping Mayhem, which arrives in a couple of weeks
  • Robert Kirkman made several announcements regarding his titles
    • Invincible #66 and #67 see the return of Cory Walker to the series
      • Return of Invincible one-shot
      • Both Ottley and Walker will do the art
      • Invincible will return to his old costume
    • The Astounding Wolf-Man comes to an end with issue #25
    • The survivors in the Walking Dead series will find a zombie-free zone as they approach Washington D.C.
  • Kirkman and Todd MacFarlane will be working on a project called Haunt with Ryan Ottley
    • Ottley will do the pencils with MacFarlane dong the inks
  • MacFarlane announced he would pencil and ink all of Spawn #200.

That pretty much wraps everything up for Image. Oh, wait.  Check out the images!

More news from the show as I get around to it, and as my two-year-old let’s me work.

    Cho’s not going to do the art because otherwise the book won’t come out. Cho’s notoriously late with almost everything.

    Wait will the costume change be permanent? I like his current one more.
