In 1992, Image Comics changed the face of the comic book industry and now—more than twenty years later—Image Comics continues to inspire creativity and foster innovation. In 2013, that tradition continued with the launch of IMAGE EXPO, an all–day event for fans, the retailer community, and the press to experience a showcase of exciting Image Comics announcements.
For the first time, IMAGE EXPO partners with ReedPOP and will be held in Seattle, Washington to bring fans an all–new slate of exciting creator–owned announcements. This IMAGE EXPO 2016 will feature a line–up of some of the hottest names in comics and offers a unique experience for fans to have unprecedented access to the writers and artists behind their favorite comic books at exclusive autograph sessions and comic–focused programming. In addition, Premium Admission Ticket holders will enjoy an admission ticket to 18+ Image Comics' Spring Formal dance—a chance to mingle with creators, press, retailers, and fellow fans, Image T–shirt, Image tote bag, EXPO exclusive variants, Priority seating, and access to the Premium signing.
IMAGE EXPO will be held at The Showbox. On July 24, 1939 the doors opened, and fans flocked to, Seattle's newest entertainment hot spot—a beautiful art–deco gem named The Showbox. 2014 marked the club's 75th anniversary, one of Seattle's few extant entertainment venues that can lay claim to having provided local music fans with such an astonishing breadth of entertainment over the decades. From the Jazz Age to the Grunge Era to the current wave of Seattle exports—neo–folk and hip hop—the storied ballroom has featured shows by touring icons such as Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters and the Ramones—as well as those by homegrown talents ranging from burlesque queen Gypsy Rose Lee, to grunge gods Pearl Jam, to the current dynamic duo on a course for world domination Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. More recent shows have included the likes of Prince, Foo Fighters, and The Roots—to name a few.
