The end of the year is a time of reflection in many ways, and that often means thinking about and assessing what the very best releases in any particular medium were. As we prepare to cross the threshold into 2017, we've been collecting some of the best covers of the year by publisher for your perusal, and today we're looking at fifty of the best comic book covers released from Image Comics in 2016.
AD: After Death
The recently launched Image title AD: After Death by Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire is a beautiful, contemplative and experimental approach to comics that abstractly takes place in a world where science has overcome the curse of death and everyone lives forever. With only one issue out so far, Sony Pictures has picked up the film rights and plans to bring AD: After Death to the big screen.
Next week sees the release of AD: After Death #1, the latest collaboration between Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire, which not only tells a poignant and emotional story, but mixes prose, illustrations and sequential art to redefine what a comic can be. Ahead of its release, ComicsAlliance spoke to Lemire about how the collaboration took shape, and the slow burn sci-fi mystery of its premise.
