Talking Comics' Cynthia Gerriets invited me on the show, and I don't think she realized what she was asking for.

I'm glad she had me on, so I can talk about the Image Documentary screening I arranged at the Loft Cinema on Monday, March 24. Tons of local comic book creators and special guests Max Cannon and David Fitzsimmons will be there. Cynthia said she will cosplay as an Image character! There will be a Image Comics giveaway and Q&A with the filmmakers after the film.

Twenty years ago, seven superstar artists left Marvel Comics to create their own company, Image Comics, a company that continues to influence mainstream comics and pop culture to this day. Image began as more than just a publisher - it was a response to years of creator mistreatment, and it changed comics forever. The Image Revolution tells the story of Image Comics, from its founders' work at Marvel, through Image's early success, company difficulties during the comics market implosion, and ultimately the publisher's new generation of properties like The Walking Dead. Filled with colorful characters, the film includes interviews with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, as well as Walking Dead cast members Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus. The Image Revolution is a documentary about the American ideal of entrepreneurship and personal freedom, and the challenge of maintaining integrity in the face of success. It is also a clarion call to all artists to take control of their own destiny. Directed by Patrick Meaney (Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts). (Dir. by Patrick Meaney, 2013, USA, 81 mins.,Not Rated, Respect Films) Digital

Tickets are only $8 and $6 for members. The con starts at 5:30 and screening begins at 7 p.m. Click here for more information.

In this week's episode, we reviewed a new Image ongoing series Manifest Destiny:

In 1804, Captain Meriwether Lewis and Second Lieutenant William Clark set out on an expedition to explore the uncharted American frontier. This is the story of what they discovered lurking in the wilds…

Skybound’s newest original series unveils the monsters of the western frontier in the adventure of a lifetime by writer CHRIS DINGESS (Being Human) and up-and-coming artist MATTHEW ROBERTS.
