Press Release:

Todd McFarlane, Gerry Duggan, John McCrea, Farel Dalrymple, Chris Sebela, Jody LeHeup, Brian Haberlin, and Rob Guillory will be making appearances at IMAGE EXPO in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, February 21st. Expo ticket holders will be the first to learn of their exciting new projects, plus even more special surprise guests yet to be announced. IMAGE EXPO 2018 Premium ticket sales will close Wednesday, February 14th.

McFarlane is the creator of SPAWN, co-founder, partner, and President of Image Comics as well as the founder of McFarlane Toys. Film director, artist, writer, and producer McFarlane is widely recognized as one of the most influential comic book creators of the last two decades. SPAWN’s hugely popular May 1992 debut sold 1.7 million copies—a still unsurpassed feat for an “independent” comic book series. 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. His following Image project, INFINITE HORIZON with artist Phil Noto, was nominated for an Eisner in 2008. ANALOG #1 co-created with David O’Sullivan from Image Comics hits stores on Wednesday, April 4th.

McCrea is an Irish comics creator whose previous work with Image Comics included his supernatural science series MYTHIC, co-created with Phil Hester.

Dalrymple is the creator of POP GUN WAR: CHAIN LETTER (2017, Image Comics) and POP GUN WAR: GIFT (2016, Image), The Wrenchies (First Second Books, 2014), It Will All Hurt (Study Group Comic Books, 2015), and Delusional (AdHouse Books, 2013). 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).

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.
