To celebrate 25 years as a comic book publishing company, Image Comics / Skybound will be releasing a few books with a twenty five cent price point. The books will be on store shelves in February of 2017. The time will mark and commemorate the company’s founding in the early days of 1992 when Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino and Rob Liefeld bravely broke from Marvel Comics to found their own, creator-driven, independent venture.
The three books that will be marked at that low, low price are The Walking Dead # 163, Invincible # 133 and Outcast # 25.
The full press release, as announced here, is available for you below:
