SDCC 2016: Image Comics confirms signings, panels and more

Image Comics’ Spawn, Sex Criminals, Monsters and tons more will be in the convention center for SDCC.

There should be something for almost any Image fan in store for those heading to Comic Con next week. As you might expect, con-exclusive variant editions, and signings are on tap for the Image booth. Looking for panels? There’ll be plenty as well, but in private rooms.

Turning up big showings though, will be some of the company’s most popular labels. Sex Criminals, Monstress, Tokyo Ghost, Snotgirl, and the reinvigorated Spawn will all be present. And they’ll be in full effect too, factoring into signings, panels, and exclusives for you to buy.

PANELS HOSTED BY IMAGE COMICS:

THURSDAY
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Creating the Zeitgeist, Thursday, 7/21/16, 2:00p.m. – 3:00p.m., Room: 23ABC

Comics are more popular than ever, and it’s all thanks to creators who are bringing their passions, interests, and original ideas to the medium. Chynna Clugston Flores (BLUE MONDAY), Kieron Gillen (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE), Marjorie Liu (MONSTRESS), and a few more special guests are making comics cooler, story by story.

FRIDAY
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Defining New Worlds, Friday, 7/22/16, 11:00a.m. – 12:00p.m., Room: 23ABC

Comics are capable of anything, if you give them a chance. Joe Harris & Kelly Fitzpatrick are creating near-future sci-fi in SNOWFALL, Chris Burnham showed us a vision of hellish horror in NAMELESS, and Steven Seagle & Jason Katzenstein brought us an all-ages monster-themed coming-of-age tale in CAMP MIDNIGHT. They create new worlds that readers fall into and love forever, and they share their expertise here.

SATURDAY
Comics in #YourIMAGE: Riffing on Reality, Saturday, 7/23/16, 1:00 – 2:00p.m., Room: 7AB
  

Works don’t have to be completely realistic to feel real—sometimes just dipping a toe in reality and then taking off in another direction will do the job. Joshua Williamsonco-creates NAILBITER, Caitlin Kittredge writes THROWAWAYS, and Matt Fractionscripts ODY-C & SEX CRIMINALS. These creators and our special guests take something we know well and then throw a monkey wrench into the works, creating something familiar, but innovative, at the same time.

SUNDAY                        
Comics in #YourIMAGETomorrow’s Comics Today, Sunday, 7/24/16, 2:00 – 3:00p.m., Room: 7AB    

What do mainstream comics look like? What appeals to “the average reader”? Bryan Lee O’Malley Leslie Hung (SNOTGIRL), Jamie McKelvie (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE), Brandon Thomas (HORIZON), and Jim Zub (WAYWARD) are making books that appeal to anyone and everyone, and redefining the idea of mainstream comics in the process.

About Jason

Jason's been knee deep in videogames since he was but a lad. Cutting his teeth on the pixely glory that was the Atari 2600, he's been hack'n'slashing and shoot'em'uping ever since. Mainly an FPS and action guy, Jason enjoys the occasional well crafted title from every genre.
