Celebrate Image Day February 1st!

February 1st marks the 25th anniversary of Image Comics! We’re celebrating in local comic shops across the world this Wednesday!

Skybound is very proud to be part of this event! THE WALKING DEAD #163— the first of our 25 cent issues—comes out on the 1st! Make sure to grab it! Later this month, we’ll also have two more 25 cent issues (Invincible & Outcast) and we’ll have 5 Image tribute variants!

Join us for the single most anticipated day of the year, as we come together and celebrate the 25th anniversary of Image Comics—but more importantly, the 25 years of true creative freedom and history-making storytelling from the best writers and artists in the world.

Wade’s Comic Madness in Bucks County, Pennsylvania will have free issues of The Walking Dead #163 and will be accepting (and matching) donations to the ACLU! They’re also offering 50% off Image Comics!

Strange Adventures up in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, Canada, who are also celebrating their 25th anniversary are giving away free comics with any Image Comics paperback purchase!

Unknown Comics in Amarillo, Texas is giving copies of THE WALKING DEAD #163 to all customers (mail order and in store) for the month of February.

At Heroes & Fantasies in San Antonio, Texas they’ve got a huge event going on. Free The Walking Dead #163, raffles for variants, and zombies galore! Make sure to check out their event page.

Planet Comics in Anderson, South Carolina is also giving away free comics and has a ton of other sales and offers going on!

We’ll add more featured shops as we hear back from them, but be sure to check your local store for promotions, giveaways, creator signings, and social media events, and see below for even more shops and signings!
