That list of Image Titles in full

Image released a LOT of information this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. Taken from my post on The Beat and including as many of the covers as I could find thus far, is a full list of the books they announced. On a weekend where Marvel had nothing to announce due to being stuck in AvX, and DC’s New 52 wave also precludes them from doing new books or having anything exciting to talk about, Image (and to a smaller extent IDW and KaBoom) were the publisher who took most attention this year. The lineup of forthcoming titles from Image also reveals a number of creators are no longer on exclusive contracts. Matt Fraction writing for Image again would suggest that he decided not to try publishing through Marvel’s ‘Icon’ line, for example. 
We also see writers like Greg Rucka, who have no books for the major companies anymore, trying something with Image. Also noteworthy that he’s working with Michael Lark, who I believe he first met while writing Gotham Central for DC. There are a number of creators here who met doing Marvel/DC work, and have now decided to try something for themselves.KellySue DeConnick and Emma Rios, who first worked together on a Norman Osborne series, are now doing a western for Image. It’s suggestive of a move away from mainstream works, in order to create a new mainstream where creators are valued over the characters. It’s a fascinating lineup to read through, and there are some incredible exciting new books here.
