YOUNGBLOOD REBORN! Arriving May 3rd, Youngblood #1, the book that launched the Image Comics Revolution hits stores with four striking covers by, series artist Jim Towe, David Finch (BATMAN) Youngblood and Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld and rock star Chris Daughtry!
“I met Chris several years back and was as in awe of his comic book knowledge and awareness as I was his powerful vocals and chart-topping music!” Liefeld says of Daughtry. “I told him last summer that I was re-launching Youngblood and he immediately responded with ‘I gotta do a cover man!’ Chris is a really talented penciler and it was a joy to ink over his illustration for this cover!
“Chad Bowers and Jim Towe will launch Youngblood #1 with over 100 pages and 5 issues under their belts,” Liefeld continues. “They've been working towards this since the fall and we understand how important it is to deliver the comic to both retailers and fans alike. I assure you, that even in the company of so many wonderful creative teams that have worked on Youngblood, including Alan Moore, Robert Kirkman, Mark Millar and Eric Stephenson, that this book has never, ever been this good. It's spectacular and a great marriage of story and art. The buzz around these guys will be on everyone's lips”
