Image Expo already announced that Marjorie Liu would be attending January’s Image Expo event. Paranormal romance novelist, Liu has worked almost exclusively in comics for Marvel, with small dalliances for Red Sonja at Dynamite and for Jim Henson’s Storyteller at Archaia.
But now she seems set to announce a new Image Comics title at the show.
Image Comics has received flak for not focusing enough on female creators, and typically wait until the show to announce the presence of creators new to the publisher. Marjorie’s inclusion in the advance line-up would seem to suggest a subtle shift in strategy from Image Comics in this regard.
And Bleeding Cool understands it’s more than just one comic for the publisher. And we may be seeing other creators Liu has worked with in the past as well.
Who might that be joining Liu? Here’s a run down of the favourites.
Kalman Andrasofszky from NYX: No Way Out.
Phil Noto, Amilcar Pinna, Gabriel Hernandez Walta or Mike Perkins from Astonishing X-Men. Or how about Daniel Acuña from Black Widow.
Who do you fancy?
