Image Comics is an American comic book publisher. It was founded in 1992 by seven high-profile illustrators as a venue where creators could publish their material without giving up the copyrights to the characters they created, as creator-owned properties. Along with DC, Marvel and Dark Horse, Image Comics is one of the four largest comic book publishers in America.

Stories and tales about a city of a rich history of superheroes and supervillians often told through the eyes of the people who live there.

  • Elephantmen
Blade Runner meets The Island of Dr. Moreau. Hundreds of years in the future, African animals are genetically engineered into soldiers. What happens when they're decommissioned?

Mark Twain and Nicola Tesla fighting Thomas Edison. Electrical robots versus lovecraftian monsters. SCIENCE!

School for supervilian children.
A young girl claims to others in her school that she is a fearsome giant-killer.

A modern and sleek superhero coming-of-age story. A whole superhero universe told through mostly this one title.
  • Madman
  • The Maxx
  • Nightly News
  • Orc Stain
  • Pax Romana
  • Phonogram

It has zombies!
  • Witchblade v2 (Ron Marz)
Ron Marz turns a paper-thin excuse for Marc Silvestri to draw naked women killing people into a fascinating paranormal police procedural.
