Image Celebrates 2018 Eisner-Nominated Comics By Selling Them for Cheap on ComiXology

Posted by May 1, 2018 Comment

It was just last week that Comic-Con International announced the 2018 Eisner Award nominees, but Image Comics is already devaluing them by offering digital copies of all 18 of their nominated series on ComiXology. If you think this sale sounds like just an excuse for Image to brag about how many nominations they got, you’re… probably right, as the press release consists of just one paragraph about the sale and then immediately goes on to list all Image’s nominations again and tell people how to vote for them:
