Desperado Publishing to Leave Image Comics
Desperado Publishing has announced that they will be leaving Image Comics and begin self-publication in July, 2007. Desperado President Joe Pruett had this to say about the decision:
“I want to publicly thank Image Comics for their faith in our company and the enthusiasm that they’ve shown for our line over the last few years. I have no doubt in my mind that the decision to partner with them at our onset has allowed us to survive the turbulence of being a small, specialty press in today’s marketplace. That being said, I’m excited about the possibilities that lay ahead for us.”
Desperado will begin with eight solicitations a month as an independent publisher.
