We normally do not post press releases but this one I'm excited about. Image was and has been a publisher I admire and they have come a long way since 1992. If you want to read about these blind boxes, read on and make sure to ask for them at your comic shop.
Invincible is one of those really good super-hero comics that has flown under the radar. Robert Kirkman has incorporated all of the great super-heroic tropes into an entertaining story that has a wonderfully cohesive continuity. Unfortunately, it has been overshadowed by Kirkman's much more noticed series, especially The Walking Dead. After thirteen years, it will officially end in the final, twelve-issue story "The End of All Things." Here is the press release from Image Comics.
Bryan Lee O'Malley writes some fantastic comics, so fans look forward to any new comics from him. It looks like the new series Snotgirl is no exception, going to a second printing to keep up with pre-ordered demand. This leads to a press release from image with an eye-catching, if not slightly disgusting headline... SNOTGIRL blows readers away
Jeff Lemire's Plutona is getting the hardcover treatment this summer from Image Comics. Lemire's writing has been gaining him new fans for the past few years, with each new series continuing to show his skill as a storyteller. This summer, Image Comics is collecting the five issue Plutona into both a trade paperback and a great, limited edition hardcover.
Luther Strode's story is coming to an end. Everything has led to a final confrontation with the first murderer, Cain. Cain is the one person behind all of Luther Strode's pain. Everything is going to end for the saga of Luther Strode this July in Legacy of Luther Strode TPB.

It's been a while since I caught up with Marco, Alana, and Hazel in the pages of Saga. When I saw that Saga #36 promised a somewhat happier story, I was thrilled to catch up, since things have not looked good for quite a while in Saga.
Kaare Andrews has created some controversial moments in comics before on Spider-Man: Reign and Iron Fist: The Living Weapon. It looks as if he's at it again, this time on his creator owned Renato Jones: The One %, published this summer by Image Comics. What follows is the press release from Image Comics and advertising for the series, which may not be suitable for all audiences.
Howard Chaykin is pretty much a legend in the comics industry. Most recently his work has been published by Image, notably in the series Satellite Sam, and now Midnight Of The Soul. Granted, we haven't been diligent in promoting this fantastic work, but right now, we start to remedy this.
Invincible immediately grabbed readers' imaginations in no small part thanks to the artwork of co-creator Cory Walker. Over thirteen years of stories has seen the title character grow from a courageous teenager to a hero and a father. The most recent story line saw Mark begin his story over, but choose to go back to the life and the family he had in the present. Unfortunately, it never quite works out that simply.
