Image Expo. The most glorious convention EVER! Todd McFarlane!! Eric Larsen!!! Mark Silvestri!!! Rob Liefeld!!(?) Whilce Portacio!! Jim Valentino!! Robert Kirkman!!! And even more?!?! YES!! The ULTIMATE convention came and left a huge void to be filled. More on that later.
I remember the day I found out there would be an Image Expo. It was a few weeks after finding out that WonderCon would not be held in San Francisco this year. It made my day. I started to remember all the times I had visited the Image booth at WonderCon and, looking back, it’s the only place I KEPT going back to. Weird enough, I had only been collecting four Image titles at that time (Haunt, Elephantmen, The Walking Dead and Invincible). Regardless of not knowing too much about what was going on in Image, I decided I would pay the $300 ($150 apiece) for the MVP passes for me and my wife*.
