Comics can be very addicting. One only has to look at the 10,000 plus comics gathering dust and space in the Major Spoilers HQ Nerd Room of Doom! to see that. Image Comics wants to hook new readers on their sweet, sweet candy with a new Image Firsts campaign.
Beginning in September, Image will reprint and re-release 10 first issues that introduced major characters to the comic universe. The new issues will be released through November, with each featuring a $1 cover price.
“Response to Image Firsts has been phenomenal,” exclaims Image Publisher Eric Stephenson. “So, we are expanding the line with a second wave of IMAGE FIRSTS. Image Firsts is a fantastic way for readers to discover new titles and for retailers to introduce customers to Image’s unsurpassed backlist.”
I really like it when comic book companies release books at a much lower price, and the $1.00 price point is almost nothing in this day of $5.00 titles.
