Image Firsts Walking Dead As discussions for Free Comic Book Day began, many of our retail partners brought up how helpful it would be to have additional, inexpensive supplements to our featured title, Silverline’s FRACTURED FABLES, as a way of bringing in an even wider range of fans,” explained Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “We developed the ‘Image Firsts’ program to showcase the great variety of titles we have to offer. Between the superheroics of SPAWN, INVINCIBLE, WITCHBLADE, SAVAGE DRAGON and YOUNGBLOOD to the science fiction of GIRLS and PROOF to Eric Shanower’s historical epic, AGE OF BRONZE, and the horror of THE WALKING DEAD and CHEW, there’s something for every reader, old and new.
