Image’s Popgun Aims for Diverse Visions

Image Comics loads a roster of comics’ most creative artists and writers into the Popgun Vol. 1 Original Graphic Novel (SEP07 1958, $29.99), a massive, 400-page vehicle for a wide range of entertaining stories and works.

Image anthologies like Put the Book Back on the Shelf: A Belle & Sebastian Anthology (DEC05 1753, $19.99), Four-Letter Worlds (NOV04 1533, $12.95) and many others have served as stellar showcases of its commitment to bringing readers outstanding work from established and rising creators. With a host of luminaries handling the writing and art, Popgun Vol. 1 should continue that tradition.

Included in this “ultimate graphic mixtape” are stories by Mike Allred, Chuck BB, Mike Bullock, Benito Cereno, Dave Crosland, Toby Cypress, Brandon Graham, Shepherd Hendrix, Jonathan Hickman, Eva Hopkins, Joe Keatinge, Erik Larsen, Jason Latour, Corey Lewis, Joseph Michael Linsner, Jim Mahfood, Derek McCulloch, Chris Moreno, Moritat, Khary Randolph, Rick Remender, Jamie S. Rich, Mark Sable, Tim Seeley, M. Zachary Sherman, Mark Andrew Smith, Richard Starkings, Jame Stokoe, Nick Stakal, Doug Wagner and others.

The full-color Popgun Vol. 1 OGN features a cover by Allred and is scheduled to ship on November 21.
