A little bird just told me that there's more to my Crossover story from earlier this week. Come to find out, Image seems to have over 10,000 copies in variants alone already lined up. Now, I don't know for sure, but I'll guess that means maybe 15? 20 covers so far? Featuring all manner of comic book characters from across the industry? We last heard retailers were jumping the gun on cover requests before the book is even solicited… So we've got a week to go before Image officially begins their call. What number do you reckon they'll be up to by then? Our source revealed that one artist in particular may be of interest… but we'll see if they'll give us any more clues in the meantime. A reminder that Donny Cates' Absolute Carnage at Marvel last year still took second to Image's Spawn – perhaps he'll get in at #1 this time around with Image Comics backing him.
While we wait to find out more… I'm told Image Comics' The Department Of Truth from James Tynion IV and Martin Simmonds' series is another hot, hot, hot commodity and I've got my hands on Scott's Collectables' Peach Momoko cover before anyone else. Stunning.
