Image Comics Creators Unite for Exclusive Online 'Image United' Chat on
Tune in November 24th for Virtual Panel with Six of the Original Image Founders
Friday, November 20, 2009

On Wednesday, November 25th a unique comic book event begins. Six of the original Image Comics founders - Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri, and Jim Valentino - along with new Image partner Robert Kirkman, unite and reunite for Image United. This six-issue limited series features all of the Image Universe's major characters, such as Spawn, Youngblood, Witchblade, Invincible, Savage Dragon, and Shadowhawk. In a story written by Kirkman, the mini series is uniquely illustrated by ALL of the original six creators, each drawing their own characters and creations together in the same panels and pages.

To mark the debut of the first issue, Newsarama announced a unique, live online Image United event.

On Tuesday evening, November 24th at 7 PM EST, the night before issue #1 goes on sale, Newsarama will welcome all seven creators in a 90 minute online interview/chat hosted by Vaneta Rogers, and all comic book fans from around the world are invited to attend.

Kirkman, Larsen, Liefeld, McFarlane, Portacio, Silvestri, and Valentino, will attend live and together in the same virtual room, to answer your questions about Image Comics' past, present, and future, and, of course, Image United.

"Since Image United's announcement we've received a tremendous amount of requests for appearances of all creators involved in stores and conventions all across the planet," Image Comics Publisher, Eric Stephenson, said. "By teaming up with Newsarama for this once-in-a-lifetime event, we're bringing every creator directly to the readers.

"This is our thank you for the massive support the Image Comics fan base has already given the project."
