IMAGE FIRSTS: $1 First Issues of 10 Popular Books

Image Firsts: $1 First Issues of Titles

This March and April, in the 5 weeks leading to Free Comic Book Day 2010, Image will be re-releasing ten of their biggest #1s at only one dollar an issue.

Well-established books like Invincible, Savage Dragon, and Spawn (in case you can't find one of the 1.7 million copies originally printed) are joined by newer books like Proof and CHEW in the initiative. In a press release about the program, Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson explained, "As discussions for Free Comic Book Day began, many of our retail partners brought up how helpful it would be to have additional, inexpensive supplements to our featured title, Silverline's FRACTURED FABLES, as a way of bringing in an even wider range of fans."

Each week, from March 31, 2010 through April 28, 2010, two of the #1s will be released along with other comics on wednesdays. All ten will appear in the February issue of Diamond Comics Distributors' Previews.

All of the titles, plus the dates in which they'll appear, are listed below:
