Writer/artist Dustin Weaver has paid tribute to the seven founders of Image Comics and their flagship creations for the the company.

Weaver has drawn pin-ups of Rob Liefeld's Youngblood, Jim Lee's WildC.A.T.S. (co-created with Brandon Choi), Todd McFarlane's Spawn, Erik Larsen's Savage Dragon, Jim Valentino's ShadowHawk, Marc Silvestri's Cyberforce, and Whilce Portacio's WetWorks.

Weaver has a special tie to Image Comics going above and beyond being just a fan: in 1993 while suffering from Hodgkin Disease, Weaver was invited to visit Homage Studios - the then home studio to Lee, Silvestri, and Portacio. Weaver later interned at Lee's Wildstorm imprint, and even worked on some of Lee's books. You can read more about Weaver's story here.
