Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    ya, i don't know about Icon really being used to unknowns. it is for marvel's creator-owned stuff. which means marvel proper doesn't get as much of a cut when selling those books. thus they are likely to only really trust Icon books with big named people they know will sell well.

    or in order to cement a contract for a big name that has always wanted to do creator owned stuff.
    id be interested to find out how much marvel makes off an icon book versus somewhere like image

    same goes for creators

    i remember millar saying something to the effect of they do all the promotion themselves and it has to come out of pocket

    Here's the full Secret Avengers lineup announced at C2E2 for those not paying attention to it.
    he panel started by revealing the full cast of Ed Brubaker's and Mike Deodato's "Secret Avengers." "It's a Secret unless you've been reading the internet for the past 48 hours," said Brevoort before revealing the lineup to be Steve Rogers, Sharon Carter, War Machine, Nova, The Beast, Moon Knight, Valkyrie, Black Widow and the Irredeemable Ant-Man. Marko Djurdjevic will provide coves and has drawn a massive Avengers image featuring the full lineup of all the teams, which will be broken up into six covers for all the Avengers titles next year.

    Marvel also announced a new Invaders mini-series by Christos Gage and Alex Ross.

    thing with image is, while they are all creator owned

    if you look at their board of directors

    that is pretty much the creators of their books right there.

    to clarify this is pretty much wrong

    the books by the image founders are such a tiny fraction of their output

    if Danielle Moonstar was Valkyrie I'd be down

    moon knight ain't never been cool, he's just crazy Batman to the Sentry's crazy Superman

    stop stealing dc characters and making them crazy

    it was cool that one time in exiles when you did it with Hyperion but enough is enough and it's time for a change (I am not a nugget)

    board of directors isn't founders, but even still that probably isn't the best term to use, ill admit.

    Founders: Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri, and Jim Valentino

    Partners: Robert Kirkman, Erik Larsen, Todd McFarlane, Marc Silvestri, and Jim Valentino.

    All i'm saying, when someone says "image comics" do you ever really think immediately of any project that is NOT done by one of those guys?

    damnit dude i know, but their heavy hitting books

    the ones that really sell, are ones that are done by those prominent people in the company. and thus that is how image is able to keep their heads above water and really become the number 3 even though they only do creator owned.

    because the money for their big guns is going directly back into the company.
