Image Month - April 2012

20 years ago, seven star creators rocked the comics world by leaving behind their comfy positions at Marvel Comics to form a company of their own. The story of the journey Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri and Jim Valentino undertook has been well documented, and Image Comics has rightfully become the major publisher most synonymous with ‘creator-owned comics’.

Broken Frontier celebrates this momentous occasion in comics history throughout April 2012 with a huge Image Month event: four weeks filled with coverage on Image’s past, present and future.

Here’s what you can expect: interviews with founders, creators and retailers, guest features, reviews of some of the classic early #1s, a few neat contests, a walk through the company’s rich history, exclusive previews and more!

Contribute your own guest feature

If you’re a creator , retailer, industry member or fan and you want to get involved in our Image Month by contributing your own guest feature, get in touch with BF’s Editor in Chief Frederik Hautain at for more details.
