Right out of the gate, Image Comics differentiated themselves from the big two in the comic book community by ramping up the sex, violence, and gore to absurd levels. For every hilarious moment in Deadpool is an equally bloody moment in Image Comics. As the company continues its mission of releasing interesting work by independent artists, the gore has steadily increased in both shock value and aesthetics. The panels you’re about to see aren’t for the faint of heart, so make sure your mom isn’t in the room.
Gruesome comic scenes are more than simple drawings of fingers glued to construction paper or a guy being stabbed to death in the shower. Like the most gory moments in Marvel comics, brutal scenes in Image Comics slowly register in your mind before you realize that you're looking at a horrifying piece of art. The illustrative prowess that’s on display in this collection of bloody moments proves just how vital the independent comic scene is to the world today. Enjoy these gruesome Image Comics panels and vote up the bloodiest ones that are forever engrained in your memory.
Berserker Does Something Berserk
Berserker was pretty much just Milo Ventimiglia's excuse to make an edgier version of Wolverine, and that's fine. He could have been doing worst stuff with his time, like being mean to kids at a children's hospital or something.
The whole series is pretty gory, but the comic starts off with one of the Berserkers getting his fingers smashed with a hammer, and then ripping another guy's arm off and beating everyone to death with it. He also punches through a guy's neck. If you don't care about plot or the quality of writing, then it's a pretty good read to pass the time.
Negan Beats Glen To Death
Issue 100 of The Walking Dead featured one of the most brutal and surprising deaths of a series that's made up of brutal and surprising deaths. Rick had his hand cut off, Carl had his eye shot out, and so many chompy boys were blown apart, but Glen's death was still a lot to handle. The frame by frame beatdown that Negan gives Glen feels like an exercise in forcing the audience to confront the violence that they come back for month after month.
Invincible Headbutts A Guy To Mush
If Robert Kirkman is writing a comic, then you can rest assured that someone is getting their head smashed in. The man has a singular obsession with watching heads get bashed. In a nutshell, Invincible is about a guy with super powers who is sworn to protect earth. When Invincible fights an evil alien named Conquest, the creature seemingly kills Invincible's girlfriend, so Invincible bashes in Conquest's head until he's a disgusting mushy pulp.
Billy Kincaid's Art In Spawn
In the Spawn universe, Billy Kincaid is a child murderer who gets his just desserts after he's released from a mental institution in Issue 5 of the series. His death is pretty rough, but it's got nothing on his whole obsession for cutting off the fingers of children and gluing them onto a piece of paper. Gross.
