Image Comics is Berkeley-Bound

Image travels to the land of underground and independent comics publishing in a Bay Area move made necessary by a need to be closer to head honcho Erik Larsen.

The southern California location of the Image offices played a symbolic role in the early perception of Image as a fresh and exciting alternative to New York mainstream comic book publishers. The impending re-location also brings into relief continuing efforts to find new ways to keep the company viable in its second decade, changes that made news early in 2004 when Larsen replaced Jim Valentino. The most amusing moment in the article is the notion that Image will benefit from low office space prices following the end of the Internet economy boom period, a cycle very familiar to the comic book publisher.
