    Experience Creativity by Winning All of Image’s May #1’s! [Contest]

    This contest is now over! Thanks to everyone who entered, and congratulations to the winner.

    Image Comics happened to be our Publisher of the Year last year, and man, somehow they’ve completely blown away that year in just four months. Combining major launches like “Saga,” “Fatale” and “Prophet” with mega announcements like Morrison and Robertson’s “Happy” and the return of Gillen and McKelvie’s “Phonogram,” they’re just killing it in their 20th year as a publisher.

    May is shaping up to be another big month, as four big releases are being dropped. Two came this past week, in the well-received duo of “Mind the Gap” and “Epic Kill.” Two more are dropping, with one being the highly anticipated relaunch of Extreme Studios’ “Youngblood” and the other being yet another collaboration between writer Kurtis J. Wiebe and Shadowline Comics in “Grim Leaper.” We’ve checked out the latter already, and we can say its another hit from that combination that already has given us “Green Wake,” “Peter Panzerfaust” and “The Intrepids.”

    To celebrate our relaunch, we have an exciting contest for everyone. We’re going to give away copies of all four of the May Image #1’s to one lucky MC reader. What do you have to do? It’s simple: leave a comment for us sharing what your current favorite Image title is along with your email address, and we’ll select one lucky person to rope in all four of these titles. Make sure to get your entry in by Tuesday at Noon EST. That’s when we’ll be drawing our winner.

    • Livelobstr

      Saga is definitely my favorite Image title right now! livelobstr@yahoo.com

    • I’ve gotta go with Fatale, though Saga is a close second.


    • I have to with The Walking Dead as my current favorite Image book, even though I read it in trade. email: TheUncannyHavok@yahoo.com

    • Rgscarter

      Toss up between Saga & Fatale. Really looking fwd to Phonogram. So many great tiles! rgscarter[at]gmail[dot]com

    • My personal favorite has been AMERICA’S GOT POWERS. It’s tightly written, beautifully drawn, and captures not only the most fascinating aspects of bringing super-humans into the “real world”, but makes some magnificently biting commentary on celebrity culture and reality television. joshuadepstein@gmail.com

      Saga. Vaughn had me with: “Am I shitting? I feel like I’m shitting!” Plus, giant cats, stabbing tongues, android sex, battle-turtles, what appears to be a fat joint – and that’s only the first two issues! I can’t wait to see what other crazy concepts BKV brings to this world.

    • Prophet is my favorite. Great story and artwork.

      Big fan of Witchdoctor. Walkind Dead, natch! And Elephantmen!

    • Nathanial Perkins

      My favorite Image title… goddamn, hard question. Supposedly, Fell #10 is coming out soon, so I want to say that, but I need to stop dreaming and focus on what I can actually read right now, so the answer is Saga.


    • Daniel Morales

      Hmm…If I had to pick just one it would have to be Saga. There’s only been two issues out but it’s been SO good so far.


    • Near Death is a very close second, but I’m most excited for Whispers right now.


    • Jamal Khan

      Sweet Christmas, this is going to be difficult. One Image title…hurm. I’m going to go with one which hasn’t been mentioned yet since I love me some Image. Chew, one of the most consistent, FUNNY, and original titles at Image which has kept the steam blowing from its’ initial launch.

    • Andrewjamesgordon84

      Fatale or Saga its a hard choice between then two.


    • Bookofdisquiet

      I’ve got to go with Saga, but is no one going to mention Morning Glories?? That was a close second for me.


    • Mark

      Chew, without a doubt.


    • Carlo

      Saga for sure


    • Tony

      Peter Panzerfaust


    • JP Valdecantos

      Definitely Prophet! It’s a wonderful reimagination of a 1990’s concept. And the artwork rocks!


    • Chuck

      This is pretty easy for me, as I only collect Saga and Fatale from Image. Saga has been excellent so far, and is Science Fiction & Fantasy, which I love, so Saga takes the cake!


    • Morning Glories
