Chris Giarrusso pays tribute to 20 years of Image Comics

by  in Comic News Comment

Robert Kirkman and Chris Giarrusso‘s The Walking Dead For Kids may have been an April Fool’s joke, but what isn’t a joke is the fact that Giarrusso is creating 12 tribute variant covers for various Image titles this year as a part of their big 20th anniversary. First up is the way-to-Youngblood cover above, which will serve as a variant cover for Youngblood #71.

“Twenty years ago, I was eagerly anticipating the launch of Image Comics,” said Giarrusso in a press release. “Maybe it was partially due to my upcoming high school graduation, but it felt like the whole world was changing. I vividly recall the excitement of seeing the Image books on the shelf for the first time. It was a new era, and these cover images were instantly iconic. The opportunity to pay tribute to these classic Image covers is an honor and a privilege, and I couldn’t be more excited about my role and participation in Image’s 20th anniversary celebration.”
