Now you already know that I was hitting the annual Book Expo and based on my findings have relegated most of my photos and notations over on “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken since it made more sense. However, this little narrative is being done to celebrate the great presence that our friends at Image Comics did this year in terms of all the great artist and writer signings and the cool freebies (the full rundown of appearances were cited HERE in case you missed it). Let’s start off by gleaning this awesome tote that bears their logo and the cool phrase “I Believe In Comics”. We believe in them here at the Media Command HQ as well.
First up is artist Kickily who was signing copies of “Perdy” which is a Western themed title. Kickily was also doodling for the people who were taking a copy of the book and I captured him doing this on mine for our Instagram. I will embed that in a little later.
Here’s Dean Haspiel and his graphic novel “The Red Hook”. Yes its also about that section of Brooklyn in case you wondered.
All of the creatives for “The Weatherman”; isn’t that awesome. It’s Jody LeHeup and Nathan Fox in case you wondered.
Adam McGovern and his “Nightworld” series. I wasn’t able to take this along with me though for some reason. Oh well, it happens….
Here’s Bryan Lee O’Malley and Leslie Hung creators of “Snotgirl”.
Here’s Brendan Fletcher with copies of both “Isola” and “Motor Crush”.
The tables at the Image Comics booth at Book Expo is stacked high with dozens of free comic book titles. Yes I said “free” and I usually take a couple of copies of each to divvy up among friends who are also ardent collectors. Do you folks read any of these titles? It’s without question that the most popular of the titles you see in the first photo are “Spawn” and “The Walking Dead”.
There was also some buttons and that illustrated tote that I began the post with. Yes I made sure to get myself one but I didn’t get anything extra of these items to giveaway. Sorry about that.
Here’s Cat Seaton and her comic “The Black Bull Of Norroway”
Here’s Anthony Del Col and his graphic novel “Son Of Hitler”
The remaining comic content will be served up in the posts over on “The Chronicles”. Since they made such a special affair out of it, I wanted to give the folks at Image Comics their own little spotlight. They deserve it and they did give away a lot of comic books like you saw above. How could I not return the favor in journalism. Oh yeah and before I go, I did mention that Kickily doodled in my copy of the “Perdy” book. Here is the clip that was uploaded for our Official Instagram. Please consider following this profile because I go crazy at the conventions and I think that you would enjoy a lot of it.
I hope you enjoyed this Image Comics feature and I encourage you to give some of their titles a whirl. There are so many amazing titles to choose from and a whole score of collected editions. See you next time and thanks for reading.
