Image Comics announced a free preview book that showcases their Extreme line of comic books that are slated to appear in 2012.
For those of you that are unaware, Image Comics and Rob Liefeld have re-teamed to bring their Extreme Publication imprint back from the comic book world’s graveyard. This resurrection will bring back the 90s powerhouse titles from the publisher including Brandon Graham and Simon Roy on Prophet, Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell on Glory, Tim Seeley and Francheco Gaston on Bloodstrike, John McGlaughlin, Jon Malin and Robert Liefeld on Youngbloods, while Erik Larsen and Cory Hamscher will be teaming up to finish off Alan Moore’s story on Surpeme. And this rebirth will take place starting in January 2012 with Prophet #21. But, you can check out a preview book to see what they have in store for the titles for no money!
It’s absolutely true! Right now, the 32-page preview book will be absolutely free online through Iverse, comiXology, Diamond Digital, and Graphicly. But if you were lucky enough to visit by the Image Comics booth at NYCC last month, you could have gotten a physical copy there. Or, maybe you stopped by there and didn’t know what it was so you threw in your bag. Well, pull that sucker out! Or not, I mean, it is online for free, after all.
Personally, I have zero attachment to these titles, but there are some creators on these books whose work I enjoy, so I’ll give some of them a shot, but I’ll definitely be reading the preview book, again because of the free. And who knows? I might really dig it, and you might, too! So, let’s put our sunglasses on and read some digital comics because it’s time to get EXTREME!!!!
