Image Comics Reveals “Images Of Tomorrow” Variant Covers For July

I’ve been doing these “variant covers” posts in celebration of the Image Comics 25th anniversary because each month the publisher has been issuing some very interesting stuff. If you’ve missed any of the posts from the past few months, just click on THIS LINK to recap because there is always a chance you can find some of the ones that you are interested in at your local comic book shop. The July plan is for “18” of their titles to get “Images Of Tomorrow” variant covers. This post features the first “9” that were revealed. Here we go.

The Press Release:
IMAGE COMICS CELEBRATES 25TH ANNIVERSARY BY LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE WITH IMAGES OF TOMORROW VARIANT COVERS: Image Comics is pleased to reveal the first six of 18 variants planned for July’s 25th anniversary theme—“Images of Tomorrow.” After 25 years of ushering in waves of bestselling, award-winning, and groundbreaking comics, these variants will celebrate the longevity of Image Comics’ series with covers speculating possible future events in their storylines. Each month of Image’s 25th year will boast a theme for special anniversary variants.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So depending on when you read this post you might see more than the “9” images that I’ve posted from the two separate press releases. I like the look of these covers but am not generally the sort of collector that snags such things up. That is something for the specific kind of diehard comic book collector. What do you think of these variant cover editions? Will you be picking any of them up? So as I’ve mentioned, depending on when you see this post, you might see only the first bunch that I received but in the coming weeks closer to July all of them will be here. I’m just adding them onto this post as I don’t have the creative freedom to do a new post with each revelation. Posting them the day before New Comic Book Day is so you can show the post to your local shop and ask about ordering the ones that interest you the most. See you next time.
