Image Comics will later today tell comic book retailers that they will be adding the Diamond Comic Distributors logo for #BackTheComeback on comic books published on June 17th. Diamond had placed the symbol on Diamond packaging arriving in stores, as well as on T-shirts (one of which made its way to me) and had hoped that comic book publishers would follow suit.
Image Comics is the first to do so, so visibly and publically. The first #BackTheComeBack comics from Image Comics will be Gideon Falls #22 and Family Tree #6, both published on June 17th. Here is how they will be looking.

Centred around the appeal of "Our Comeback Will Be Bigger Than Our Setback," Diamond Comic Distributors and Alliance Game Distributors created the multi-phased "Back the Comeback" campaign in partnership with publishers and industry influencers to shine a light on the unique relationship consumers have with their local comic and game retailers while raising funds to help them reopen, restart and rebuild.
