Good lord. When Image announces titles, they seem to do so in absolutely incredible flurries of quality. Today at the Image panel, Image announced an onslaught, including:

– “Nowhere Men” by writer (and Image publisher) Eric Stephenson and artist Nate Bellgarde
– “Reign” by Chris Roberson
– “Satellite Sam” by Matt Fraction and Howard Chaykin
– “The Saviours” by James Robinson and J. Bone
– “Oliver” by Darick Robertson and Gary Whitta
– “Sex” by Joe Casey and Piotr Kowalski
– “The Bounce” by Joe Casey and David Mesisina
– “Pretty Deadly” by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios
– “Non Humans” by Glen Brunswick and Whilce Portacio
– “Point of Impact” by Jay Faerber
– “Multiple Warheads” by Brandon Graham
– “Lazarus” by Greg Rucka and Michael Lark
– “Great Pacific” by Joe Harris and Martin Morazzo

So many announcements! While there are assuredly more to come, as Image is getting bigger and bigger constantly it seems, I think I speak for all of us at Multiversity in saying that we’re most excited for “Pretty Deadly,” the Western title from DeConnick and Rios. Both of those creators are favorites of ours and big time up-and-coming talents, and previously they released the stellar “Osborn” through Marvel. We’re really excited to see where they go with a creator-owned book like this.

More on this as we get it, but Image keeps building on the momentum they’ve created in the past few years. Congrats to everyone over at Image on the big day of announcements. Check out a gallery of promotional art for a number of the series below.

Multiple Warheads (we think – these images were released without the titles, so we’re guessing on this one):
