Image Writes Off Writers With New Wordless Variants

Image believes in artists. Whatever that means.


Source: Press Release

Image Comics believe in artists. Or whatever that means according to their new variant cover program. #WeBelieve is "14 exclusive virgin wraparound covers in celebration of artists and the importance and impact they have in defining the comics medium."

Breaking new ground, Image Publisher Eric Stephenson said,

"Simply put, without artists, there would be no comics. The success of the comics industry ultimately hinges on well-told stories, but because comics is by definition a visual medium, artists are integral to that storytelling."

The covers will be released without any copy meaning they won't have titles, endorsement quotes, names, logos, or jacket copy. The covers will instead consist of just wraparound images. 

Titles and cover images are below.
