Image Comics’ July Anniversary Variants Offer Visions of the Future

Image Comics has been pulling out all the stops for its ongoing 25th anniversary celebration, from 25 cent comics to variant covers celebrating LGBTQ Pride Month and a reunion panel at Emerald City Comic-Con.  The company continues that celebration with another round of variant covers that start rolling out on June 12.  Image has released a preview of six of the 18 planned covers for July’s anniversary theme — Images of Tomorrow.

According to a press release from the comic company the variants will “celebrate the longevity of Image Comics’ series with covers speculating possible future events in their storylines.”  The covers will span a range of Image titles and give hints to what fans can expect from the series, with a few paying homage to some classic influences. Eagle-eyed fans will likely notice the Rat Queens variant is a take on the iconic Jim Valentino 1990 cover for Guardians of the Galaxy #1. You can check out the full schedule for the variant issues below, as well as the first six covers.
