If you grew up with Image comics, but never knew the whole story behind it, there’s a great new documentary out called The Image Revolution. Check out the trailer and a clip:
The Image Revolution
directed by Patrick Meaney; director of photography, Jordan Rennert; produced by Jordan Rennert and Patrick Meaney; executive producers, Julian Darius and Mike Phillips; in association with Respect! Films
20 years ago, a group of artists left Marvel Comics to create their own company, a company that continues to influence mainstream comics and culture to this day. Image Comics began as more than just a publisher — it was a response to years of creator mistreatment, and it changed comics forever.
The Image Revolution will tell the story of Image Comics, from its founders’ work at Marvel, through Image’s early days, the ups and downs of the ’90s, and the publisher’s new generation of properties like The Walking Dead. We will tell the company’s story through new interviews with the people who made it happen. And what better time than during Image’s 20th anniversary to make this documentary?
