Image United On Sale Wednesday 11/25/09

Get ready for the biggest crossover event Image has ever done.


We've been hearing and seeing bits for Image United.  The wait will soon be over for this big event.  This Wednesday, November 25, the first issue hits the stands.  If you saw our interview with Rob Liefeld, you've heard a little about this and how things aren't going to be too great for some of the characters.  The idea of having each creator draw their own characters on each page is brilliant.  I can't even imagine how it all went down.  They've said it went smoother than you'd imagine.  We shall see come Wednesday.
 
Here's a little preview to tide you over.

Going to be alot of covers for this one, I've seen a blank one as well. I kind of like those cause sometimes other artists will sketch on the front of them...

Each artist on his own character is incedible.

I'm totally doing this.
Even just for old times sake lol.

It's to bad that Michael Turner isn't around to draw Witchblade

Posted by Vic De Zen

Okay so each character will be drawn by their own artist per panel?!  Wow.  that is A LOT of coordination to be done for a story of this magnitude.  That is huge.  I do not see them pulling this off with no delays.  Expect a minimum of one month lateness between issues.

I'm not too big of an Image fan. I never really read anything from that imprint. Should I get this?

Posted by InnerVenom123

The only one I know about is Spawn... and I'm hearing its not Al Simmons.... lol, I'm a n00b to image. Looks cool though. I'll look at it when it comes out.
Posted by Media_Master

Looks awesome!!

Posted by 4Essence

Wow! This is incredible!!! 
Have all the issue 1s of these guys, and all the WildC.A.T.s! LOOVE Image Comics!
 
With you on that one Skaarason, it needs good ol' Invincible, and I really really really wish Lee's WildC.A.T.s coulda made it on here. Grifter woulda been perfect in those panels =/
Posted by EvLJEsT

So is this its own title or will it bee seen in spawn and young bloods, or Savage Dragon?

Edited by Kid_Zombie

Never was a big image superhero fan. When i was a kid, my brother was into spawn and savage Dragon and has the first 10 issues of both, but he did not like him after that, so neither did I ha ha. I dug Wildc.a.t.s a lot when i was a kid because of the cartoon. But never got into the comics all that much. But this does look really cool, i might not have any idea whats going on but i really dig what they are doing with it. All the different artists is a great idea and is a gimmick that is interesting me alot. The pictures look sweet, and surprising how much they flow together for being different artists. good  for image this concept will do the company really well.
 i already buy Walking Dead and chew, and i want to start reading invincible, so image deffently has a lot of pull with me but i never got into these superheros so im confused.  I wish WildCats was in this because that is really the only image superheros i knew, and invincible I want to get into but hes not here either. Will I buy this? maybe, i haven't decided yet. but i am very very tempted.

The idea is awesome !!!!

Posted by Nahero

awesome im seein that
Posted by RavagingHamster

O.O *poops self a little*

Posted by ARMIV

Wait,Al Simmons is the bad guy?!

Posted by waruikumo

YAY!!!!!!! early 1990's FTW, This is looking really cool.  Its nice to see Image build some continuity. 

Posted by drawme

I can´t wait to get my copy of IMAGE UNITED.
I think I will choose between Savage Dragon, Spawn and Witchblade...although Jim Lee´s version is pretty hot!

Posted by Jamiracles
@geraldthesloth:  For real, what about Invincible?
Posted by King Hercules

Awesome!
Posted by jloneblackheart

Seeing as how Jim Downing is now Spawn, and both he and Al Simmons are in this issue, should Jim Downing have his own page? Both are currently credited to the Spawn page. After reading this, Al now calls himself the Omega Spawn.
