The revolution will not be televised but you can buy tickets.
Today at the Diamond Comics Retailer summit in Chicago, Image Comics announced Image Expo 2013, which will be held in San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts on July 2, 2013. What is it?

Image Expo 2013 will be be the most intimate comics event of its kind, offering unprecedented access to creators, exclusive swag, and the first chance to hear what the publisher that has been taking the comics industry by storm has planned for the future.
Image Comics has set up a page on their website for Image Expo 2013 so you can keep abreast of guest announcements and get ticket information.
If I had to guess I’d say that Image Comics’ newest employee might be bringing a bit of MorrisonCon to Image’s show, but we’ll have to wait and see.
