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€
The Youngblood mini-series is available now.

Wow.Â Never thought I’d see the day where I’d be writing that headline, but it appears to be true as Variety is reporting Brett Ratner and Reliance big Entertainment joining to turn Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood series into a motion picture.
Most of the great graphic novels are gone, and â€˜Youngbloodâ€™ is one of the few comicbooks left with tentpole potential,â€ Ratner told Daily Variety. â€œIt was a real personal passion project for me, and a lot of people wanted (â€˜Youngbloodâ€™), but the amazing thing about the guys at Reliance is the speed with which theyâ€™re able to move.â€
Really?Â The great graphic novels are gone, and Youngblood is the only thing left?Â Wow.Â H’Wood must have really pillaged the comic industry over the last year.Â I really need to get my Zombie/Kung-Fu/Western out the door so I can make a billion bucks.
