16 Forgotten Image Comics Action Figure Lines
A little over twenty years ago, a group of creators left the confines of Marvel Comics for the wild world of indies. By forming Image Comics, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Erik Larsen, Todd McFarlane, Marc Silvestri and Jim Valentino set a new precedent for comics.

Throughout its existence, Escher Girls has published its share of Queen drawings with commentary about the strange poses found therein. A bunch of them are still viewable on the Internet Wayback Machine. They're not on the site itself any more, though, because Queen reported those posts to Tumblr, claiming they violated the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. He subsequently took his anger against the Tumblr even further.

It was announced Monday that venerable horror filmmaker John Carpenter's next project is to be a live-action adaptation of Darkchylde, based on the comic book by writer/artist Randy Queen. The story of a variously undressed teenage girl who transforms into the monsters she sees in her nightmares and "acts out her deepest, darkest impulses," Darkchylde was perhaps the most successful of
