50. Image Expo: The Vibe On The Scene and What Connected

IMG_9130Held the day before Emerald City Comic Con, Image took their Image Expo on the road to The Showbox in Seattle for all the creator announcements of upcoming projects.

The Showbox offered a sexy venue with lighting, chandeliers, and was already decorated for Image's Spring Formal later in the evening. Image Expo would offer many highlights and it was interesting to see when the audience connected most with the presentations during the day.
