Image Comics Reveals Final Four “25th Anniversary” February Variant Covers

I’ve been raising a glass in honor of the 2017 25th Anniversary of Image Comics and it wasn’t too long ago that I shared the press release about their special homage variant covers that will be happening in February. Yesterday they unveiled the final four covers that are coming next month and since the copy refreshed the memory on the first bunch I am adding those images back in as well for good measure. The ”Final Four” will be down towards the end of this posting. Check it out.

The Press Copy:

Image Comics Announces $.25 Issues For 25th Anniversary

2017 will mark the 25th Anniversary of Image Comics and I am proud to say that I was one of the companies original supporters. I still remember hitting the local comic store when titles like “Youngblood”, “Spawn” and “Cyber Force” hit the shelves. My friends and I would buy several copies of each first issue of course since we were going to save them forever and be rich old me. Ahh memories. So anyway, in celebration of this awesome anniversary, Image has announced that three titles will have an issue on sale for $.25 and you can read about them below.

The Press Release:
Image Comics/Skybound is pleased to announce that THE WALKING DEAD #163 by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard, INVINCIBLE #133 by Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley and Nathan Fairbairn, and OUTCAST BY KIRKMAN & AZACETA #25 by Robert Kirkman, Paul Azaceta, and Elizabeth Breitwieser, will all hit stores this February 2017 with a $0.25 price point in celebration of Image Comics’ 25th anniversary.
