Official Press Release

The Image Comics, Skybound, and Top Cow booths at Comic-Con International in San Diego will be host to some of the best and brightest creators in comics today. Many artists will have permanent tables at the Image Booth and special signings will occur throughout the convention, often with exclusives and variants to purchase. The special appearances by creators will culminate in a group signing by Image Comics founders Erik Larsen, Marc Silvestri, Jim Valentino, Rob Liefeld, and Whilce Portacio.

Some high-demand signing sessions will be ticketed. Free tickets will be available at the Image Comics booth (#2729) on the day of the signing. Tickets will be distributed for each ticketed signing beginning at the start of the show each day and only while supplies last. No purchase is necessary to receive a ticket.

Comic-Con International takes place on July 12-15 in the San Diego Convention Center. The Image Comics booth (#2729) will be the destination for Skybound, Shadowline, and Image central titles, while the Top Cow booth (#2629) will have all the latest in the WITCHBLADE- and THE DARKNESS-helmed universe.
