Image Is Everything...At Least, In This Instance

Let's see if I can get through this with a minimal amount of snark.  Start placing your bets....

Image Comics is holding a vanity con....

...okay.  Let me start over.

Image Comics is holding a comic convention where they won't have to share the spotlight with DC or Marvel or Dynamite or movies or.... more time.

Image Comics is holding a comic convention in Oakland, CA, just down the way from their Berkeley base of operations.  Coordinating it is Jimmy Jay of Jay Company, which runs the Amazing Arizona Comic Con and sells lots of Rob Liefeld variant covers.  It will be the last weekend in February.

Image is inviting other indies to come to this celebration of creators' rights.  Among the champions of creators rights in attendance will be Todd McFarlane, who tried to hijack the rights to Angela from Neil Gaiman, Marc Silvestri, who tried to hijack the rights to Fathom from Michael Turner, and Robert Kirkman, who takes 50% of spin off media on any title he publishes.

...see?  This is why I don't usually post before I've had my morning tea.
