September 22nd, 2016 by Marc Comments


Comic book legend Rob Liefeld has released a movie script for his Youngblood comic book on the 25th anniversary of its debut.

Saying the script is there for fans and is not being sent round to movie studios, Liefield is also sharing unknown relics and items from the past.

“As we approach the 25th anniversary of the launch of Youngblood and Image Comics I am sharing unknown items and relics from its past,” he wrote on Facebook. “I loaded up my Youngblood screenplay available for download on my website. It’s not being shopped around, it’s for the fans and in all honesty it’s how I would launch the book if I had a do-over. Link to my website in my bio.”

Youngblood is a superhero title from Rob Liefeld which debuted in 1992 at Image Comics.  At the time of its release, Youngblood #1 was the highest-selling independent comic book of all time, despite scathing reviews from critics.  The series followed a government-sanctoned superhero team and how the general populace would truly react to the existence of superheroes.

In 2009, a Youngblood movie was in development, with Brett Ratner attached to direct.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
