*** ALERT: The Image Comics Partner Signing event has been rescheduled from originally announced. The event will now be held on January 11, 2020. We hope that fans will mark their calendars and plan ahead for what we anticipate will be a wonderful way to kick off the New Year. ***
PORTLAND, Ore. 11/21/2019 — The entire, current Image Comics partners will come together for a special group signing on January 11 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at I Like Comics (1715 Broadway St., Vancouver, Washington 98663) for the first time ever.
Image Comics’ Robert Kirkman (Oblivion Song, The Walking Dead), Erik Larsen (Savage Dragon), Todd McFarlane (Spawn), Marc Silvestri (The Darkness, Cyber Force), Eric Stephenson (Nowhere Men), and Jim Valentino (ShadowHawk) will be present at the shop to meet with fans and sign comics.
“It's rare for the Image partners to get together, rarer still for us to make a public appearance,” said Valentino, Vice President at Image Comics. “We hope to see you all there.”
Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics, added: “We’re all spread out across three different states, but since we’d all agreed to meet at our offices in Portland as we approach the end of the year, we thought it would be fun to get together with Image’s local fans as well. Thanks to Chris and I Like Comics, we were given an opportunity to do just that.”
The event will last three hours and fans will be limited to one (1) item per partner to sign. Signatures are free of charge. No CGC will be permitted. In the interest of moving through the line—and ensuring as many fans get a chance to have their items signed as possible—no selfies/posed photos will be permitted.
“I Like Comics is thrilled to be a part of this first-of-its-kind event!” said Chris Simons, Owner of I Like Comics. “We are grateful to Image Comics for allowing us to share this with all their friends here in the Northwest and beyond. When we acquired our large space years ago, we had big dreams of an event like this happening here, and now it’s a dream come true.”
