Popgun is a comics anthology series created by Mark Andrew Smith and Joe Keatinge. It was published by American company Image Comics in four volumes, between 2007 and 2010. The driving concept behind Popgun was a mixtape of graphic short stories that cross the borders of all genres. No theme was given to contributors and instead emphasis is placed on diversity of content and the mixing/track order of each volume.


Popgun featured many well-known creators as well as showcased brand-new talent who were not widely known at the time. Many creators debuting in Popgun have since made their mark on the comics industry. Popgun twice won the Harvey Award for best anthology, and won the Eisner Award Best Anthology once.


Popgun volume 1 was edited by Mark Andrew Smith and Joe Keatinge. Mike Allred illustrated the cover of the first volume. The first volume of Popgun was released on November 28, 2007.

Paul Pope illustrated the cover for Popgun volume 2 and it was edited by Joe Keatinge and Mark Andrew Smith. Volume 2 was released on July 25, 2008.

Popgun volume 3 was released March, 2009, featuring a cover by Tara McPherson. It was edited by Mark Andrew Smith and D.J. Kirkbride.

Popgun volume 4 was released in February 2010. It featured a cover by Ben Templesmith and was edited by D.J. Kirkbride, Anthony Wu, and Adam P. Knave.
