Image Expo Adds to Huge Guest Lineup

Image Comics have announced that Todd McFarlane, Gerry Duggan, John McCrea, Chris Sebela, Jody LeHeup, Brian Haberlin, Farel Dalrymple, and Rob Guillory will be making appearances at IMAGE EXPO in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, February 21st.

McFarlane is the creator of Spawn, co-founder, partner, and President of Image Comics as well as the founder of McFarlane Toys. Film director, artist, writer, and producer McFarlane is widely recognized as one of the most influential comic book creators of the last two decades. Spawn’s hugely popular May 1992 debut sold 1.7 million copies—a still unsurpassed feat for an “independent” comic book series. A whirlwind of growth and expansion followed: more comics, action figures, film, and award-winning animation.

Gerry Duggan is a writer and producer whose recent comics include Deadpool, Guardians of the Galaxy, Uncanny Avengers, and Chewbacca. After writing for G4’s gaming and pop culture show Attack of the Show, Duggan and comedian Brian Posehn wrote the black comedy The Last Christmas, illustrated by Rick Remender and published by Image Comics. His following Image project, Infinite Horizon with artist Phil Noto, was nominated for an Eisner in 2008. Analog, co-created with David O’Sullivan from Image Comics, hits stores on Wednesday, April 4th.

McCrea is an Irish comics creator whose previous work with Image Comics included his supernatural science series Mythic, co-created with Phil Hester.

Sebela is a two-time Eisner-nominated writer living and working in Portland, Oregon. He’s the co-creator of books such as Heartthrob, High Crimes, We(l)come Back, Dead Letters, and Short Order Crooks, as well as having written books including Blue Beetle, Kiss/Vampirella, Detective Comics, Escape From New York, Captain Marvel, Injustice: Ground Zero, and Demonic.

LeHeup is the co-writer and co-creator of Shirtless Bear-Fighter! with Sebastian Girner and Nil Vendrell Pallach. A former editor, Jody worked on series including Uncanny X-Force, Deadpool, and Strange Tales for Marvel Comics as well as Quantum and Woody for Valiant Comics.

Haberlin is a comic book creator, artist, writer, editor, and educator. He is the creator or co-creator of titles including Witchblade, Aria, Stone, Area 52, Hellcop, Anomaly, Shifter, and many more. He teaches art at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and through his Digital Art Tutorials, which are available through Image Comics.

Dalrymple is the creator of Pop Gun War: Chain Letter (2017, Image Comics) and Pop Gun War: Gift (2016, Image), The Wrenchies (First Second Books, 2014), It Will All Hurt (Study Group Comic Books, 2015), and Delusional (AdHouse Books, 2013). Dalrymple was a co-founder and contributor to the comic anthology, Meathaus, and the artist on Palefire (Secret Acres, 2015) written by Mk Reed, PROPHET (Image Comics, 2012) by Brandon Graham, and Omega the Unknown (Marvel Comics, 2010) by Jonathan Lethem.

Guillory is known for his distinct, animated art style that has graced the pages of Image Comics, Marvel Comics, IDW, Dark Horse, and Valiant Comics. He’s won multiple Eisner and Harvey Awards and is co-creator with John Layman on the New York Times bestseller CHEW from Image Comics.
