Image Comics has some of the biggest names and series in modern comics. Thanks to hit series like Southern Bastards and Saga, their following has grown considerably since being founded in 1992. So much so that for the fifth year in a row they will put on their own convention devoted towards their brand, Image Expo.
Since the Expo started in 2013, Image Expo has grown exponentially, now serving as an all-day event for fans, the retailer community, and the press to experience a showcase of exciting Image Comics announcements. Alongside that, it serves as a main stage for new and exciting announcements for any and all comic news.
There are plenty of big names that will show up at the convention as well. Renowned Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and veteran comic and video game writer Rick Remender are just two of the plenty that have yet to be confirmed.
General Admission to the comic convention will cost $25 and will grant a program guidebook and access to Expo programming. A Premium Admission Ticket will grant one entry to Image Expo and includes admission to Expo programming, program guidebook, an Image Comics branded canvas tote bag, boxed lunch (valued at approximately $17), three exclusive Image Expo variants, an Image Comics branded 25th anniversary commemorative pint glass, an Image Comics branded 25th anniversary commemorative enamel lapel pin, and access to priority seating.
Continue to celebrate the Expo afterward from 7-10 p.m (location and further details to be announced) with the official Image Expo After Party. No tickets are necessary to attend the event, one with will be filled with other members of the comics community, fans, industry professionals, and creators
