For the first time in their history, Image Comics will be flying over to India to be a part of Comic Con India. It makes sense given that this country represents one of the fastest growing market for comics and Comic Con India itself runs 5 separate shows in 5 different cities across the year.
Image will have a dedicated booth presence and storefront alongside an exciting lineup of creative talent appearing at Comic Con India and exclusive Comic Con India reprint issues to drive a concentrated and concerted focus on the Image brand abroad.
Jatin Varma, Founder & Managing Director at Comic Con India, stated:
Since our inception, Comic Con India has been the key element in bridging the gap between international content and the Indian fans. Thus, it gives us immense pleasure in hosting Image Comics & their team at our shows this year! And our unique collaboration gives the fans in India a great opportunity try out some of the most popular series under Image Comics along with meeting some of the leading creators.
Along for the ride at three of its shows this year (Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore) will be Declan Shalvey (Batman, Savage Town) and John Layman (Leviathan, Detective Comics, Chew) in Dehli, Sana Takeda (five-time Eisner Award-winning Monstress) in Mumbai, and Vanesa R. Del Rey (Redlands), Ram V(Paradiso, Savage Shores), Ryan O’Sullivan (Void Trip, Fearscape), and Dan Watters (Limbo, Lucifer) in Bangalore.
And, here’s a list of the exclusive con comics:
- Spawn #1 by Todd McFarlane (Hyderabad)
- Saga #1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples (Bangalore)
- Chew#1 by John Layman & Rob Guillory (Delhi)
- Descender #1 by Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen (Mumbai)
