The Entire Image Universe Will Unite In March

Posted by G-Man (39559 posts) - - Show Bio

Today the second issue of Image United is released.  It's been announced that it has already sold out at Diamond so you'd better get to your local comic shop today to pick up a copy.  Image has also announced that the entire Image Universe will...unite in March's Image United: Interlude.
The effects of Image United will go global and we'll get a glimpse of the crossover's impact on Invincible and many other Image Comics characters in this one-shot.

"As the scope of IMAGE UNITED became larger and larger, it was apparent we would really need to touch on what the rest of the Image universe is up to," IMAGE UNITED writer Robert Kirkman said. "The goal behind the mini-series is to create an even tighter Image universe than ever before, so not only do we get to see how this affects Image founder characters like SPAWN, YOUNGBLOOD and SAVAGE DRAGON, but we're bringing in INVINCIBLE, among many other surprises." 

Image United: Interlude will pick up immediately after the cataclysmic events of Image United #3.  As the entire world reels from that issue's devastation, Invincible leads the charge with a pantheon of Image's finest.  The book will be illustrated by Ryan Ottley as well as many other artists.  The complete cast of characters and creators will be announced over the coming weeks.
Image United: Interlude will be a 32-page full color book with a $3.99 price tag.  It will be on sale on March 31, 2010.

Glad to see Invincible involved in the crossover.  It was the only Image title I read before the crossover started.

Never read an image comic except the return of shadowhawk ( i think it was called that...) on my iphone. I read DC and a little of Marvel.

Man the last one I read was the paperback that led up to Invincible changing his costume.  When did it change back? I really gotta get back into Invincible it was one of my favorite comics. I might just pick this up.

I love the fact image silhouette the Pitt character created by Dale Keown. I mean, c'mon it hasn't been THAT long...though I wonder has Dale gotten much work since that title went belly up?

@Dr. Detfink: Each character in Image United is drawn by their own creator/original artist (or one of their most popular artist). I'm pretty sure the only reason those guys are all   silhouettes is because the cover shown is only Ottley's art, and everyone else in the back is just sketched at the moment until they can be sent to their respective colorist.  
 it hasnt yet, but it will be soon. they have been talking about it for a couple of months now. I think it might be in issue #70 (#69 came out today). 
im sooo hyped about this. I cant even remember what they where about, but i used to love reading Supreme and Youngblood. and i remember reading Savage Dragon because there was a big controversy about its nipple content. And Invincible is COMPLETELY changing the way i see comics (stoopid sexy Kirkman). 
 i skimmed over 1&2 today buy didnt buy them BECAUSE Invincible wasnt in them, and i figured i could wait for the trade. But if he will be, im gonna have to go back 2morrow and grab those bad boys.

I bought both issues I skimmed through em. I just can't get into the series. Although I'm curious to see why/how Al Simmons became the ruler of Hell or whatever.

IMAGE COMICS - 20 years and still the same disrespect for readers! What about IMAGE UNITED parts 4 to 6??? No mention at all during ImageExpo, or now... No one is asking them to come out and openly admit that they cancelled the remaining issues. It does not matter if you liked 0 to 3 or not, you should still be pissed about the cancelled last issues. And even more pissed that they did not bother making a public statement confirming the cancellation due to poor sales. Poor sales due to a lack of effort and delays in shipping schedule. This project deserve to be completed even if they can only sell 7-10M issues of the last 3 chapters, just out of respect for the fans who helped them become what they are today.
