Robert Kirkman is pretty successful when it comes to life right now. The Walking Dead is a big hit across the board and another of his works is about to get the small-screen treatment in Outcast. Image Comics is celebrating the release of the series by screening the pilot episode at the Image Expo Spring Formal. The series premieres June 3rd on Cinemax and has already been renewed for a second season. A limited number of tickets for Spring Formal are still available for purchase here. Following the hour-long screening will be a cocktail hour with live art session featuring Jim Mahfood and Jason Shawn Alexander.
A special Valkyrie crowning ceremony—emceed by New York Times bestselling artist Babs Tarr—to honor the group’s devotion to expanding the comics audience and fostering community within the industry will kick-off the dance proper. Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie will DJ the event. Attendees will take to the tiles to dance, mingle, knock back signature cocktails and snap silly selfies in the photo booth. Valkyrie members are encouraged to attend by submitting their credentials here for a complimentary ticket to the Formal.
