Image Comics is an American comic book publisher. It was founded in 1992 by seven high-profile illustrators as a venue where creators could publish their material without giving up the copyrights to the characters they created, as creator-owned properties. Image's success has significantly changed the position of creators in the comic book industry. Along with DC, Marvel and Dark Horse, Image Comics is one of the four largest comic book publishers in America.

1 Don't get me wrong, I'm not condemning all indie comics. My favorite comic book ever, Usagi Yojimbo, is independent and all done pretty much entirely by one guy since the mid 1980s. But the Image guys (with the Savage Dragon guy being the obvious exception) are all lazy hacks with no artistic integrity that couldn't cut it on their own. I loved that article by the way and would love to see an update to it. I've heard they're not the No. 3 comic publisher anymore. I think when it comes to the superhero books, the corporate-owned format works best. All those classic superhero crossovers and superhero teams like the Justice League and The Avengers could never have happened under the creator-owned rules. You'd have to get permission from each character's creator and pay them something each time a character appears. You wouldn't be able to afford to use the whole team! -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 1, 2011, 5:54 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Ah yes, Rob Liefeld. The mman who forever convinced me to never take comics seriously again with his utterly ludicrous even by comic standards and anatomically impossible renderings of the female form, which is his mind consisted of two legs, each bigger around than the 12-inch waist above them, with DD breasts (minimum) and arms that would make a bodybuilder envious. Image comics indeed. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 31, 2011, 7:59 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 http://archives.tcj.com/3_online/n_image1.html READ THE SORDID HISTORY OF IMAGE Travoltron- you took the words right out of my mouth- I bought into the hype as a teenager, and looking back, yeah it blows. There are non corporate comics that rock out, they just dont have the hype of the old Jim Lee and McFarlane Years. What's really amazing is that Liefeld commanded, and still does to a degree, attention from the comics industry. His image and non image work sucks that bad. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on August 31, 2011, 6:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I was a naive high school student when Image was formed. I believed all the hype about creators' rights and that editors were holding back these great artists from telling great stories. Then these "rebels" go start their own company and make the dumbest, most unoriginal, over-commercialized crap comics in history. All they've got to show for it after all these years is... Spawn... and The Walking Dead has a TV show. These artists were only good when they had real writers and editors telling them what to do and couldn't handle it on their own. I hate to say it, but comics were better when the characters were corporate owned. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 30, 2011, 6:55 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
