In an interview with CBR, the exec promised to unveil further details of the venture once there is a "solid amount of work in the can".
He told the website: "I'm actually working with a crew of very talented young writers and artists on a group of new titles that we'll hopefully launch in the fall of this year, and I'm really curious how everyone will respond to the books, both individually and as a group.
"I don't want to say much about that until we actually have a solid amount of work in the can. I think announcements fall a bit flat when they only consist of a book title and a couple names that may not be particularly well-known.
"If I'd said a year ago, when we picked up Carbon Grey and Nonplayer, 'We're launching two amazing new books by Hoang Nguyen and Nate Simpson', the collective reaction would have been, 'OK, whatever'. But we announced them when we had something to show people, so that everyone could see what we were so excited about."
Image was founded by Erik Larson, Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Marc Silvestri, Jim Valentino and Whilce Portacio. The publisher celebrates its 20th anniversary next year.
