It’s the 20th anniversary of the comic book that launched the Image Revolution in 1992! ROB LIEFELD’s YOUNGBLOOD returns bigger and better than ever with an all-new look at the next generation of superheroes, courtesy of screenwriter JOHN McLAUGHLIN (Black Swan, Parker), up-and-coming artist JON MALIN and YOUNGBLOOD creator and Image founder ROB LIEFELD!

In this first issue, a young reporter is embedded in the Youngblood team. Her assignment is to gather enough information for a humiliating puff piece, but she quickly discovers Shaft, Vogue, Lady Photon, Die Hard and Cougar are a team to be reckoned with. Badrock would be part of the group too… if he wasn’t in a coma with wounds that have nearly pulverized his otherwise rock-hard hide.

  1. This could be fun or terrible.

    My favorite Youngblood was the one Millar was writing – too bad it lasted on issue.

  2. I bought this purely on a lark even though I despise Liefeld… not for his bad art but I just don’t like him or his work. I made it about 3 pages and it is going to take some effort to force myself to finish this one. oof.

    • That bad? I was kinda wanting to read this…oh well

    • I liked it. The art was a little rough, but I thought the dialogue was sharp and I’m interested enough to grab issue 2.

    • I thought it was pretty good. Like Rusty said, the art got sloppy in places but the story was good. I always liked the idea of a government PR superhero team.

      @ Zhurrie If you despise Liefeld, why did you buy the book? So you could post some pithy little comment on here? It wasn’t that bad at all.

    • @BCDX97 Because I wanted to see what, if anything, changed plus he only “assisted” whatever that amounts to… so I checked it out. I found it pretty bland and the art was lacking so not much different than before. I did give it a fair shake and tried to but it wasn’t for me and that was what I stated.

  3. This was a little bit cheesy at times, but overall they introduced some solid ideas and I’m interested to see where it is headed. I’d like to see a little bit more character development if they expect me to stick around for any lengthy amount of time.
