Twenty years ago some of the hottest creators in comics, Todd McFarlane, Rob Liefeld, Jim Lee, Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Whilce Portacio, and Jim Valentino, up and left Marvel in order to form their publishing company that would come to be known as Image Comics. Now, Image is the chief creator-owned publisher in the industry, continually pumping out hits like “The Walking Dead”, “Saga”, “Wanted”, “Spawn”, and more.
