Image Day at Austin Books

25 Years of Image Comics

Wednesday, February 1

9 AM – 8 PM

Join us on Wednesday, February 1st for a celebration of 25 years of publisher Image Comics! We’ll be joined by Image creators Nick Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects, The Red Wing) and Donny Cates (God Country) and maybe even another local Image creator or two!

More details are coming soon. Join our Image Day Facebook event page for updates and a reminder.

About Image Day:

On February 1, 1992 seven comics superstars Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri, and Jim Valentino came together to form their own company that would ultimately change the landscape of comics forever. Current partners McFarlane, Valentino, Kirkman, Larsen, and Silvestri collectively have brought creator-owned comics to the forefront of industry change and, after 25 years of amazing storytelling freedom, Image is pleased to celebrate the milestone anniversary with Image Day-Feb. 1, 2017.

Image Comics wouldn’t have succeeded without the tremendous creativity and passion of its creators, the unwavering support of retailers, bookstores, and libraries, or the unbridled and unrelenting enthusiasm of the fans who show up each and every Wednesday to purchase Image titles. On Image Comics Day we celebrate together, nationwide, the exciting legacy that Image’s creator-owned publishing model has cultivated as we prepare for the next 25 years of amazing creator-owned comics to come.

When a tornado levels his home—as well as the surrounding West Texas town—a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage.
