CBR News caught up with Image Comics Thursday afternoon at Comic-Con International in San Diego and they provided us with a number of promotional images to scan for upcoming books. Please note that the following images were scanned from color print outs, so the colors may not be exactly as they are meant to be.

Image also told us about a new Horror series coming to the I from Jerry Beck called "Something Wicked." The artwork is clearly inspired by the work of the Master of Macabre himself, Bernie Wrightson.

Image also told us that they've greenlighted a project from Andrew Stephenson and Trevor Goring called "Waterloo Sunset," a story set in a "strange future London" where the people are reverting to mediaevalism. This book will see publication sometime in 2004.
