McFarlane is the creator of SPAWN, co-founder, partner, and President of Image Comics as well as the founder of McFarlane Toys.

A whirlwind of growth and expansion followed: more comics, action figures, film, and award-winning animation.

Duggan is a writer and producer whose recent comics include Deadpool, Guardians of the Galaxy, Uncanny Avengers, and Chewbacca. After writing for G4’s gaming and pop culture show Attack of the Show, Duggan and comedian Brian Posehn wrote the black comedy THE LAST CHRISTMAS, illustrated by Rick Remender and published by Image Comics.

Farel was a co-founder and contributor to the comic anthology, Meathaus, and the artist on Palefire (Secret Acres, 2015) written by Mk Reed, PROPHET (Image Comics, 2012) by Brandon Graham, and Omega the Unknown (Marvel Comics, 2010) by Jonathan Lethem.

Sebela is a two-time Eisner-nominated writer living and working in Portland, Oregon. He’s the co-creator of books such as Heartthrob, High Crimes, We(l)come Back, Dead Letters, and Short Order Crooks, as well as having written books including Blue Beetle, Kiss/Vampirella, Detective Comics, Escape From New York, Captain Marvel, Injustice: Ground Zero, and DEMONIC.

LeHeup is the co-writer and co-creator of SHIRTLESS BEAR-FIGHTER! with Sebastian Girner and Nil Vendrell Pallach. A former editor, Jody worked on series including Uncanny X-Force, Deadpool, and Strange Tales for Marvel Comics as well as Quantum and Woody for Valiant Comics.

Haberlin is a comic book creator, artist, writer, editor, and educator. He is the creator or co-creator of titles including WITCHBLADE, Aria, Stone, Area 52, Hellcop, Anomaly, Shifter, and many more. He teaches art at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and through his Digital Art Tutorials, which are available through Image Comics.

Guillory is known for his distinct, animated art style that has graced the pages of Image Comics, Marvel Comics, IDW, Dark Horse, and Valiant Comics. He’s won multiple Eisner and Harvey Awards and is co-creator with John Layman on the New York Times bestseller CHEW from Image Comics.

Previously announced creators confirmed to take the stage at IMAGE EXPO 2018 include Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD, OBLIVION SONG BY KIRKMAN & DE FELICI), Rick Remender (DEADLY CLASS, SEVEN TO ETERNITY), Tee Franklin (BINGO LOVE), and Nick Pitarra (THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS).

IMAGE EXPO 2018 is a unique all-day experience for fans to have unheard of access to the writers and artists behind their favorite comic books at exclusive autograph sessions and comic-focused programming. The event is open to all fans, comics retailers, librarians, and media.

Tickets to the event are now available for sale. Image Comics is pleased to offer General Admission tickets available for $25, Premium Admission tickets available for $100. A General Admission Ticket will grant one (1) person entry to IMAGE EXPO and includes a program guide book and access to EXPO programming.

Join us at the official IMAGE EXPO After Party, which will be held from 7-10 p.m at Jackknife (614 SW 11th Ave, Portland, OR 97205). No ticket necessary, swing by and mingle with other members of the comics community, fans, industry professionals, and creators at this fun get-together.

In 1992, Image Comics changed the face of the comic book industry and now–more than 25 years later–Image Comics continues to inspire creativity and foster innovation. In 2013, that tradition continued with the launch of IMAGE EXPO, an all-day event for fans, the retailer community, and the press to experience a showcase of exciting Image Comics announcements. Since then IMAGE EXPO has garnered mainstream news coverage and an industry reputation as one of the most newsworthy events of the year. IMAGE EXPO continues to grow in reach and influence.

IMAGE EXPO will be held at Leftbank Annex. The Leftbank Annex brings a sleek and well-coordinated event infrastructure to the raw, industrial ethic of a pre-war building. Through a skeleton of timber, concrete, brick, and steel, you’ll find large projectable surfaces, controlled lighting, superb access, and outstanding electrical infrastructure. You have the flexibility to transform the space into anything you can imagine, or to leave its authentic raw backdrop. The possibilities are endless.

HEROES CONVENTION was founded in 1982 by Shelton Drum, owner of Charlotte’s Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find comics shop. Since then the convention has become famous for its comics-first and family-friendly atmosphere, where fans can mingle directly with professionals and exhibitors. Boasting an incredible guest list built mainly on reputation and goodwill, HeroesCon is known nationwide as a “must” on the summer schedule, drawing fans, exhibitors, and creators from all over the world to the Charlotte Convention Center.
