The first four issues of the all-new, all-different Youngblood comic series are being collected into a trade paperback called “Focus Tested.” The new Youngblood features the creative team of Godland's Joe Casey and Conner Hawke's Derec Donovan. "’Focus Tested’ is the opening salvo of the new Youngblood assault that Derec and I have planned," Joe Casey said. "The stories in this collection are just the beginning of a much larger epic that, for fans of the Youngblood concept, should give them exactly what they've been wanting for years. It's pop superheroics on a grand scale, not to mention media and celebrity worship at its most obnoxious. All this, plus the grand soap opera and the big explosions that superhero team books do so well. This one's got it all!" In addition to the first four issues of Youngblood, the trade paperback will extras such as an introduction by Invincible and Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman, interviews with Joe Casey and Rob Liefeld, and a Youngblood script by Casey circa 1995. Derec Donovan said, "Where Youngblood goes after the trade has me more excited about the book than I've ever been. An old Youngblood favorite, Televillain, returns in full-on serial killer mode, gunning after the a brand new Youngblood team I can't wait to draw. All this plus I can't believe who we're bringing back from The Golden Age! It's a good time to be a Youngblood fan." The Youngblood: Focus Tested trade paper will be 104 full color pages, will retail for $9.99, and has an on sale date of August 3rd, 2008.
