Image is home to some of the most creative titles in comics, and they couldn’t make that claim without a massive roster of major talents behind them. The annual Image Expo represents a gathering of these talents coming together to blow the collective minds of comic fans, with major announcements, new titles, and more and more talent bringing their creator-owned ideas to the Image empire.

Along with all the names already announced, Image is proud to add Emma Ríos, Brandon Graham, and James Robinson to this year’s lineup. Check out the press release below, and if you’re like me, start wondering now about who the “surprise guests in attendance” will be!
