Image has been teasing their Image Expo Spring Formal dance for a couple of weeks now, and we are finally getting more details about the high school inspired after party.

The Image Expo Spring Formal dance will be held on the evening of Wednesday, April 6 from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. at The Showbox Market theater to celebrate diversity and community in the comics industry.

The crowning ceremony will focus on thanking The Valkyries as well as highlighting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

Artist Babs Tarr will emcee the Valkyrie crowning ceremony. Image is offering a complimentary ticket to all Valkyrie members if they submit their credentials before Friday, March 25.

The party will also feature the DJ skills of the creators behind The Wicked + The Divine Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie.

“Obviously, Jamie and I play all kinds of music, varying from early-period Robyn, to mid-period Robyn lightened with a little sprinkling of late-period Robyn,” teased Gillen. “But really, this is the first opportunity we’ve had to bring the Thought Bubble dancefloor experience over Stateside, which is basically The Church Of The Wicked + the Divine (featuring the sacristy of Phonogram). The aim is to make people dance in ways they really shouldn’t, and we – and our handpicked colleagues—will do anything to achieve our goal. Admittedly, this will inevitably involve some Robyn. You know what we’re like.”

All attendees for the Spring Formal dance must be 18+ and are encouraged to don their formal wear for a night on the tiles with their fellow comics fans, creators, press, and retailers. You can purchase tickets here.
