Image Comics has announced the return of Youngblood, the team made famous by Rob Liefeld 25 years ago.
“Youngblood has had outstanding talent contribute to its amazing history,” said Liefeld. “Alan Moore, Robert Kirkman, Keith Giffen and Mark Millar are a few who have left their mark. Chad Bowers and Jim Towe are four issues into their run and are producing stories that will be held as some of, if not the best Youngblood tales ever told. It honors the best of the past and forges exciting new paths for these characters!”
In this YOUNGBLOOD #1, an uber popular self-protection app called HELP! is changing how we stay safe—“HELP! lets you decide who saves you.” But when a high-rated young hero on the app goes missing, his best friend’s search for answers gains the attention of some unexpected allies, and together, they’ll do whatever it takes to find him… even if it means resurrecting the world’s most hated super-team, Youngblood.
The new Youngblood series is written by Chad Bowers with art by Jim Towe. The first issue is scheduled to arrive on May 3, 2017.
I’ll admit to picking up some Youngblood issues back in the day, but I never latched onto it like I did other series from Image Comics. What are your reactions to the return of Youngblood? It has a new creative team, but will you secretly miss Rob Leifeld’s stylings? I have to know! Use the comment section below to share your thoughts.
