Ben Fisher signing! August 26th, Noon-2PM

In the near future, humanity awakens to the horrifying reality that the faintest touch from another's skin results in agonizing death.

Two years after the "Divide", a pair of thieves stumble upon the means to save their species... but not everyone is eager to see the old world order restored! Includes free digital bonus content to download, including the song "Teotwawki" (mood music for the apocalypse), a coloring book, RPG content, a self help book from the perspective of villain Sebastian Gibbs, dystopian short stories, and a song by the band City Below!

#ImageComicsDay Wednesday February 1st, Steve Lieber signing noon-2PM

In honor of Image Comic’s 25th anniversary we’re celebrating on Wednesday February 1st, 2017. We will have some giveaways and creator signings that we should announce soon.

Steve Lieber (The Fix, Underground) will be signing noon-2pm

On February 1, 1992 seven comics superstars Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri, and Jim Valentino came together to form their own company that would ultimately change the landscape of comics forever. Current partners McFarlane, Valentino, Kirkman, Larsen, and Silvestri collectively have brought creator-owned comics to the forefront of industry change and, after 25 years of amazing storytelling freedom, Image is pleased to celebrate the milestone anniversary with Image Day—Feb. 1, 2017. 

Image Comics wouldn’t have succeeded without the tremendous creativity and passion of its creators, the unwavering support of retailers, bookstores, and libraries, or the unbridled and unrelenting enthusiasm of the fans who show up each and every Wednesday to purchase Image titles. On Image Comics Day we celebrate together, nationwide, the exciting legacy that Image’s creator-owned publishing model has cultivated as we prepare for the next 25 years of amazing creator-owned comics to come.

DC Rebirth Midnight Release Extravaganza at Cosmic Monkey! Tuesday, May 24 at 11:30 PM - 12:30 AM

  • Cosmic Monkey Comics (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

DC Comics is relaunching their entire universe and it all starts with the DC Rebirth one shot by Geoff Johns & Gary Frank. Cosmic Monkey Comics is going to have a midnight release event to kick it off and let everyone get a first look at the future of the DC Comics.

All other DC books and comics will be 20% off for that night only!

It all begins here. Do not skip to the last page. Do not let a friend or message board ruin this comic for you. The future (and past) of the DC Universe starts here. Don't say we didn't warn you!
THEY SAID IT: "Rebirth is about focusing in on the core of the character and their respective universe," says writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. "It brings back what has been lost, the legacy of the characters, the love and the hope of the DCU!"
