Today’s art post is all about Image+ magazine. I snagged a copy of this back in May on Free Comic Book Day but I’ve only just recently sat down to read it through thoroughly. And I am sad that I waited so long. I absolutely love it!
Image+ magazine (Issue #1) is packed with fantastic articles, from so many different creators in the comics industry. It had interviews from artists, writers, colorists and more, along with a fantastic balance of both female and male creators, which I think is really important. While I don’t currently have any comic making plans, I love reading about the process and getting a peek behind the scenes and this issue delivered so much more than I expected.
Along with the excellent interviews, it also provides some previews for upcoming Image comics. I’ve already added a few more to my watch list that I otherwise wouldn’t have even heard of. Plus, in the back of the magazine, they provide a checklist for all the titles coming out from Image in the month of July (which is the magazines publish date.)
Personally, Image is my favorite publisher in the business. They have what I feel is the best and most varied content, and I love that they provide a platform for creator-owned comics to be seen and heard in the market. Image+ Magazine gives a great added element to that, along with latest Image news, and I can’t wait to get a new copy each month!
If you’re a comics fan, admirer, or creator, I highly recommend picking up a copy! At $1.99 an issue, it’s an absolute steal. You can also subscribe to receive it in the mail each month here.
