"An absolute must-watch… one of the best documentaries of the year" – Umberto Gonzalez, Latino-Review
In 1992, Marvel Comics was the number-one publisher of comic books in the world, largely due to its dynamic artwork. But as a response to what was believed to be years of mistreatment toward creative talent by the industry's leading publishers, a small – but influential – group of artists left Marvel Comics at the height of its popularity to form their own company, Image Comics. Led by the outspoken Todd McFarlane (Spawn), this group kicked off a revolution that would change the comics industry forever, instantly granting power to creators and launching Image to "rock star" status. But with great power came great turmoil, as Rob Liefeld (Deadpool), Jim Lee (X-Men), Marc Silvestri (Wolverine), Erik Larsen (Savage Dragon), Whilce Portacio (X-Factor) and Jim Valentino (Guardians Of The Galaxy) almost immediately began to unravel the very bond that united them.
Through rare archival footage and brand-new interviews with all seven founders, as well as industry insiders, comics historians and current Image Comics creators like Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead), The Image Revolution brilliantly tells the story of the rise, fall and triumphant return of one of the most successful publishers in comic book history.
