As announced at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, the Image United mini-series that debuts next year will be created by six of the artists who founded the publishing company 16 years ago — Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino, Rob Liefeld, Whilce Portacio, and Todd McFarlane — along with the newest Image partner, writer Robert Kirkman. But what is really different about this jam session is that each artist will draw the characters he created — sometimes meaning one scene of the series will have six artists working on it.

“This is the single biggest event in Image’s history. It’s an event that no one has attempted before, involving top creators drawing their most famous creations. What if Kirby drew the Fantastic Four alongside a Ditko Spider-Man and a Buscema Silver Surfer? Or a Gene Colan Iron Man drawn next to a Kirby Thor? That’s what this is. And what makes it bigger is that people never saw this coming. They believed we would never work together again,” Liefeld said.
