ECCC 2017: Image 25th Anniversary Panel

Emerald City Comicon hosts a reunion of the Image Comics founders for their 25th anniversary on FRIDAY MARCH 3rd at 1:00 PM with an exclusive signing to follow (details at the link)!

Twenty-five years ago, a group of comics artists looked at the difference between what they were capable of and what they were being given, and left the promise of steady work for new pastures. The result was Image Comics, which has grown from an upstart group to a comics publisher that has changed the course of the industry. Image’s 25th anniversary year begins with this special event, a very rare gathering of original founders Todd McFarlane, Rob Liefeld, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino, Marc Silvestri, and Whilce Portacio, moderated by Robert Kirkman.

Press Release:

Hero Initiative, the non-profit organization that aids comic creators in need, will attend Long Beach Comic and Horror Con November 23rd and 24th at the Long Beach Convention Center in an entirely new way—with foosball!

That’s right! Hero will have a foosball table at its booth, #406, all weekend. The table comes courtesy of Foosball Master Tour, and you can test your skills in special challenge matches against well-known artists Jon Bogdanove, Jimmy Palmiotti, Darick Robertson, and Alex Sinclair to raise money for Hero Initiative. Get practicing now!

The convention continues its dual traditions of Helping Hero and producing AMAZING limited edition prints with its They Live, Halloween, The Birds and The Hunger prints! Each print is limited to only 100 copies each, and available at $30 each at the Long Beach Con store in the main lobby. In addition, 30 copies each of They Live and Halloween will be available autographed by legendary director John Carpenter for $50 each at the Storm King Productions booth, #913 on the floor. All proceeds from They Live and Halloween benefit Hero, along with partial proceeds from The Birds and The Hunger!

And Hero is having a special $1 sale all weekend! You can pick up great product such as the Salimba graphic novel, Vision Machine graphic novel, and even Hero T-shirts at a mere $1 each! There’s a limit of one per item per customer, and supplies are limited, so get to booth #406 FAST!
