    The Image Comics Hardcover is a collection commemorating the tenth year founding anniversary of the upstart publisher that changed the comics landscape for better or for worse. It features new stories as the remaining Image founders return to the characters that made their careers in 1992. Particularly noteworthy is the Spawn story with art from Todd McFarlane, whose pencils have not graced comic book interiors in years.

It features new stories as the remaining Image founders return to the characters that made their careers in 1992. Particularly noteworthy is the Spawn story with art from Todd McFarlane, whose pencils have not graced comic book interiors in years. Image Comics launched in 1992 with seven artists who bolted Marvel for greater control in their creator owned work. This book has the remaining four founders on hand. The three founders, who left, are Rob Liefeld, who resigned from Image due to a conflict with the other partners and Jim Lee, who sold his Wildstorm studio and character portfolio to DC Comics which also included Whilce Portacio’s Wetworks. Of the missing founders, Liefeld’s absence is easy to ignore. His Youngblood may have been the first Image comic released, but I’ve never enjoyed his overmuscled and anatomically distorted art. On the other hand, Jim Lee has always been my favorite artist and it is sad he cannot participate in this book. On my shelf though, Lee’s WildC.A.T.S. Compendium hardcover appears side by side with my Image Comic Hardcover as a companion volume. The two books couldn’t be more different. WildC.A.T.S. Compendium is an inedible snapshot into early Image. Brash, ambitious, beautiful art and a barely there plot, these are all the hallmarks of the excesses of Nineties comics. The Image Comics Hardcover is a more polished work compared to it. The Image founders have matured as artists. Also, each contributed story in this book leads to a new direction for their respective characters that would be explored further in their monthly titles. Why compare these two books? It is hard not to associate Lee’s contribution to Image itself. At one time, Lee, along with Liefeld, McFarlane, Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino and Portacio were Image. It is also a nice contrast between Image then and Image now. If there is one thing that remained consistent through the years, it is the great art. If there is one thing that Image Comics invested in, it was in its image.
