On March 8, Meltdown Comics will celebrate the launch of ALL TIME COMICS, the most anticipated and unexpected superhero comic event of the year. Acclaimed director Samuel Bayer, who launched his career 25 years ago with Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” video and went on to direct videos for the likes of Green Day, the Strokes, and more, is now working on his (arguably) most outside-the-box project yet: in collaboration with his brother, indie comic book creator Josh Bayer, Sam has created a superhero universe, ALL TIME COMICS.

Come celebrate the launch of ALL TIME COMICS with an open bar featuring cocktails specially crafted in honor of the ALL TIME COMICS superheroes: Crime Destroyer! Bullwhip! Atlas! and Blind Justice! Bringing a truly retro, punk vibe back to comics, ALL TIME COMICS is published by Fantagraphics, the publisher of the world’s greatest cartoonists like the Hernandez Bros (LOVE & ROCKETS) and Tony Millionaire (DRINKY CROW). Get the first-ever issue of ALL TIME COMICS, CRIME DESTROYER #1 signed by some of the book’s creators, including Sam and Josh, at Meltdown Comics. Let’s party like it’s 1979!

Samuel Bayer also recently announced his ALL TIME COMICS short film starring LaMonica Garrett (DESIGNATED SURVIVOR, SONS OF ANARCHY) as the title character in ALL TIME COMICS, CRIME DESTROYER #1. Denise Schaefer, who has modeled in campaigns for GUESS and Marciano, stars as Bullwhip opposite punk rock icon Steve Jones (The Sex Pistols; The Professionals) appears as her enemy. Rounding out the cast are Maitland Ward (BOY MEETS WORLD), Jackie Chan’s stunt crew, and acclaimed Stunt Coordinator Eddie Braun (THE AVENGERS).

Briank K. Vaughan, Joe Casey, Steven T Seagle and Matt Hawkins. It’s gonna be a blast, food, drinks, party!
FREE EVENT!

On February 1, 1992 seven comics heavyweights Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri, and Jim Valentino came together to form their own company and ultimately change the landscape of comics forever. Current partners McFarlane, Valentino, Kirkman, Larsen, and Silvestri collectively have brought creator-owned comics to the forefront of industry change and, after 25 years of amazing storytelling freedom, Image is pleased to celebrate the milestone anniversary with Image Day—Feb. 1, 2017.

Image Comics wouldn’t have succeeded without the tremendous creativity and passion of its creators, the unwavering support of retailers, bookstores, and libraries, or the unbridled and unrelenting enthusiasm of the fans who show up each Wednesday to Image titles. On Image Day we celebrate together, countrywide, the exciting legacy that Image’s creator-owned business model has cultivated and we prepare for the next 25 years of amazing creator-owned comics to come.

The planet’s most badass metal band takes control of comics! The ultimate thrash juggernaut, Slayer has dominated stages and destroyed audiences for over thirty years, with their latest album, Repentless, showing no signs of slowing down or showing mercy. Based on the brutal Repentless videos, this expansion of the video story lines drives deep into the darkest heart of America, a raging road trip down a bloodstained highway, a tale of the doomed, the damned . . . and the repentless!
