One of the most significant -- and to many readers, one of the most exciting -- developments in comics in the last few years has been the growth of Image Comics, with many of the most popular writers and artists in the industry currently producing much, if not all, of their creator owned work through the publisher. As such, Image Expo has become a highly anticipated event, as publisher Eric Stephenson uses the annual show to announce several upcoming books from both established and new talent.
Today's Image Expo continued that tradition, as more than a dozen new titles were announced, from Ed Brubaker, Grant Morrison, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Chris Burnham, Matt Fraction, Rick Remender and more.
Even though the crowds of Comic-Con International might be a huge hassle, there's one thing that we can all agree on as being well worth the trouble: Burritos. And being able to talk to our favorite creators about their upcoming projects, I guess, but seriously, the burritos out there are amazing. Fortunately for me, I was able to combine both of those things when I grabbed lunch with Joe Keatinge, and we spent the walk back to the convention center chatting about his upcoming Knight story in the Batman Incorporated special, and the launch of Marvel Knights Hulk later this year.
Dormant since 2010's Spider-Man: Fever series, as revealed by today's solicitation info the Marvel Knights imprint is coming back in a big way. It's a little bit of a different creature than you might remember, though. The imprint will still feature top-tier Marvel characters, but exclusively in mini-series by creators whose names one might associate with creator-owned work.
Marvel announced three such series today: Marvel Knights: Spider-Man by Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) and Marco Rudy (Swamp Thing), Marvel Knights: X-Men by Brahm Revel (Guerilla) and Marvel Knights: Hulk by Joe Keatinge (Glory) and Piotr Kowalski (Sex).
While touring San Francisco in advance of this week's Image Expo, Glory and Morbius writer Joe Keatinge came upon this excellent street mural that recreates the iconic "Starwatcher" illustration. According to Juxtapoz, the mural was painted by artists Mark Bode, Stan 153, and Cuba, in tribute to the late French master who passed away in 2012.

Emerald City Comicon, a time when the "Seattle Freeze" thaws and comic creators, consumers, and costumers are welcomed into the city's warm embrace. The event also marks the beginning of convention season, a frenzied (and friendly) whirlwind that will run until the close of New York Comic Con in October
Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell's Glory is nearing its end. We've covered the series extensively here on ComicsAlliance, and spoke to Keatinge and Campbell about its upcoming conclusion with issue #34. With just three issues left, t
The countdown to the final issue of Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell's 12-issue run on Glory begins this Wednesday at what's more or less the crack of 2013, just in time for the Rob Liefeld-created heroine's 20th anniversary year. From the looks of the lat
Of all the books that were part of the excellent Extreme Studios relaunch this year, Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell's Glory was far and away my favorite. The epic story, the beautifully drawn battles, the quiet character moments, all of them combined to make it one of my favorite comics of the year. With Glory #34, though,
The Metro Convention Centre in downtown Toronto played host to Fan Expo Canada this past weekend. The event is Canada's largest nerd convention and has been billed as "the third largest pop culture event in North America," though that doesn't count the forthcoming Avril Lavigne/Nickelback wedding.
