|None of these fine publishers or imprints...|
Image has been around since the 1990's, but it much different now than it was then. Basically founded by a bunch of artists fed-up with their treatment at Marvel, Image at first had a bunch of horribly-written super-hero stuff of little note other than it helped create the mega-popular (for a time) character, Spawn. Things shifted over time however, and Image kept their concepts about letting creators have the rights to their properties but started launched more and more unique and different things. Whereas once Vertigo had been thought of as the place to go for mature and intriguing comics, Image started to get that focus Now today huge hits such as, "Saga," or the behemoth that is, "The Walking Dead," call Image their home, and this littler publisher that could turned into the big publisher that did.
That's Image, and seeing as how they make-up much of my reading-list of comics, that tells you I'm pretty impressed with their output--in general--there are always some stinkers that come out, remember, "Happy"? The occasional bomb aside, Image is a publisher I am pleased to be reading! I am excited to see what 2016 brings for the publisher and look forward to great things.
