It's really strange to me that Image is acting like any other company on their anniversary and just going for the cash. Variant covers. Reprints. Next they'll have chrome photo trading cards of the founders and a blooper reel. This reprint isn't that offensive, personally I don't even care, it just makes me scratch my head at Image comics and wonder how seriously we can take the publishers next big blast of the industry.
Image Comics is pleased to present the never-before-reprinted parody of the company’s formation—SPLITTING IMAGE.
This 80-page title by Don Simpson with with colors by Hilary Jenkins, skewers the Image Comics company formation and pokes fun at the artists who founded it.
"We thought the occasion of our 25th Anniversary was as good a time as any to revisit our past with tongue planted firmly in cheek and sense of humor in tact!” said co-founder and Image Comics partner and Vice-President Jim Valentino. “A piece of history at your fingertips (now go wash your hands!)”
SPLITTING IMAGE will also feature tons of special bonus content that fans won’t want to miss out on, including: the normalman-MEGATON MAN SPECIAL by Simpson, co-founder and Image Comics partner and Vice-President Jim Valentino, Larry Marder, and Bob Burden.
SPLITTING IMAGE (Diamond Code FEB170579) will hit stores on Wednesday, April 26th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, March 27th.
