COVER SHOTS: Image Comics April Solicitations

It's official - someone stole the Image Comics 'Approved' stamp, and went nuts on the pile of pitches the company received. In April six new #1's kick off (seven if you include Top Cow), plus one-shots for Walking Dead and Madman - crazy!! Still of all the covers both new and old, these four stand out from the rest to lead the charge.

COVER OF THE MONTH: BLUE ESTATE #1 - Kalvachev Yeah it took me a while to realise the whiskey was being poured from a gun too. Of all the pulp titles kicking off in April, Blue Estate covers in one image just what all good pulp is made of; hard drinks and harder women.

CLOSE CONTENDERS: Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman - Undying Love #1, Erik Larsen - Savage Dragon #171, and writer/artist Nate Simpson - Nonplayer #1. For more Image April #1's and other numbers click the jump.

    Took me a while to realize that was a gun, too. :)
