Image Comics Publishers of the Largest Selection of Creator-Owned Comic Books Can Be Found at White Dragon Comics
Image Comics formed in 1992 by creators for creators is the third highest selling comic book publishers. Image Comics established out of frustration when writers and artists’ developed new characters and storylines that were being heavily merchandised, but artists and writers only received standard rates for their work, while top publishing company’s reaped the profits.
In 1991 a group of artist, comic book heavyweights Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Jim Lee, Todd McFarlane and a few others approached Marvel president, Terry Stewart demanding that the company give them ownership and creative control over their work. Unfortunately for Marvel Comics, they did not meet their demands, which has resulted in one of the best publishers of creator-owned works being formed, Image Comics. Shoppers can read many of the award-winning comic books from Image writers and artist sold at White Dragon Comics.
They introduced an increasingly important business model for the company, offering other creators the same total-ownership terms the partners enjoyed, but taking a fixed fee upon publication for the company's administrative costs. This practice was later formalized as a function of "Image Central", the business unit independent of any of the studios.
