Newsarama to Host IMAGE UNITED Chat


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

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

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

McFarlane, Liefeld, Silvestri, Valentino, Larsen, Portacio, and Kirkman will all be there live & together in the same virtual room, to answer your questions and ours 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."

Mark your calendars now for Tues. 11/24 at 7pm to 8:30pm EST and look for further details on how to attend this historic online panel soon right here on Newsarama.
