Youngblood fans who happen to own an Apple iPhone or iPod Touch are in luck this morning as comiXology has announced fans of the series can buy the digital comic through Comics by comiXology application.
The first Image Comics publication, Youngblood chronicles a high-profile superhero team sanctioned to do the bidding of the US government. comiXology will debut Liefeld’s re-mastered edition of Youngblood, featuring re-scripting by popular comics writer and Ben 10 co-creator Joe Casey. The exclusive relationship with Liefeld is indicative of comiXology’s commitment to preserving top print comics and maintaining strong ties to independent comic book creators.
â€œWe are thrilled to have Youngblood in our catalog and strongly believe Rob’s decision to work with us exclusively is a validation of our leadership in the digital market,” said David Steinberger, president of ComiXology in a prepared statement. â€œThe Image founders have each had a profound effect on the comic industry and the way it views and treats creators, and Rob is no exception. It speaks volumes that Rob has put his confidence in us to bring Youngblood into the digital age. We look forward to working with him and welcoming a new legion of Youngblood fans.â€
â€œComiXology is at the forefront of the digital comic book age and presented the best opportunity for me to bring the original Youngblood series to new audiences,â€œ said series creator Rob Liefeld. â€œComiXologyâ€™s impressive track record in distributing classic print comics digitally gave me all the assurance I needed to know that Youngblood would be in good hands.â€
