After the resounding success surrounding the relaunch of Rob Liefeld’s YOUNGBLOOD series (currently at issue #1) Image comics has put out a press release that you can read below concerning the series’ massive reception by fans thus far and it’s hopes for the series going forward:
Image Comics is pleased to announce that Rob Liefeld’s YOUNGBLOOD #1 with writer Chad Bowers (X-Men ‘92, Deadpool: Bad Blood) and artist Jim Towe is being rushed back to print in order to keep up with the overwhelming customer demand. YOUNGBLOOD #1 is part one in the all-new story arc “Reborn” to which Bowers and Towe lend their fresh story and artistic spin.
“There is a certain satisfaction at putting creative teams together and watching them conjure magic,” said Liefeld. “When I paired Chad Bowers with Jim Towe, I could feel that special spark and with 5 issues and counting I am nothing short of amazed at the content they are creating! The first day sell out of Youngblood is Chad and Jim’s achievement and I’m so proud of them and the work they have created. Strap in for a crazy ride because as I look over the 120 pages gathered across my inbox I assure you that there is much more magic to come!”
Twenty-five years ago, YOUNGBLOOD launched the Image Revolution and turned the comics world on its head. Now the original blockbuster hit series returns with an all-new cast and a brand-new mission! When a young hero goes missing, his friend’s search for answers leads to some unexpected allies. Together, they’ll do whatever it takes to find him…even if it means resurrecting the world’s most infamous super-team. YOUNGBLOOD #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
