From Spawn to Saga


Saturday, June 14th is a big deal for Image Fans. Mainly because the publisher will witness much of their history on display at an exhibit called From Spawn to Saga: Image Comics at 22. The show is presented by One-Shot Gallery and on Saturday, June 14th, from 8 to 10 PM at St. Mark's Comics, the fruits of that publisher's labor will be on display.
One-Shot is a micro-gallery that exhibits original contemporary art and prints inspired by and celebrating the aesthetics, characters and themes of comic books and original graphic novels.

In 1992, several high-profile artists that were frustrated with working for DC and Marvel struck out on their own to form Image Comics. These artists joined with other unique talents to give the creator-owned movement a shot in the arm by putting out books like Spawn, WildC.A.T.s and The Maxx which would become synonymous with comics in the '90's. Since then, Image has become the place for creator-owned projects, including critically-acclaimed series like The Walking Dead, Saga and Rocket Girl. This exhibit celebrates the awesome books published by Image Comics from ’92 to today.
