The Image Seven!

[Eddy]

It's not everyday you get to meet Jim Lee. Or Whilce Portacio. Or Marc Silvestri. Now, just add Todd McFarlane, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino and Rob Liefeld to the mix and you've got a great day. Throw in some free comics and ninety-degree plus weather and you've got the all seven of the Image founders signing at Atomic Comics for Free Comic Book Day last Saturday!

As one of my friends put it, "it's like being a part of comics history!" And for hundreds of fans baking in the hot Arizona sun, that's exactly what it was at they all waited several hours to meet the Image Seven. Having lived in Arizona, Marat Mychaels was also there and he told me was the first Image rookie, making him number eight.

The buzz in the room was great too, as everyone reminisced about the good old days and even the days yet to come. The level of anticipation and excitement in the air was very real and you could feel it from both fans and creators alike.

What could be more fitting for the seventh FCBD?
