October 15th, 2007 (Berkeley, CA) - Rob Liefeld's return to Image dominated the buzz this past summer and now you can finally see the results in this January's YOUNGBLOOD #1!

"YOUNGBLOOD is the book which launched the Image invasion and eventually spawned THE ULTIMATES and AUTHORITY," said writer Joe Casey. "It's only right it's back at home and I'm extremely thrilled Rob has entrusted his creations to series artist Derek Donovan and me. Derec and I are bringing back everything fans loved about the series, but in a whole new style set for the fans of today."

A new administration reunites series originals like Shaft, Badrock, Die Hard and Cougar alongside newer creations including Johnny Panic, Doc Rocket and one never-before-seen character! The ongoing is set to fuse modern sensibilities and the original series' over-the-top excitement as our team learns darker forces are behind their reunion. In addition, creator Rob Liefeld will be providing variant covers for each issue of the series.

Image Comics Publisher Erik Larsen said, "Having Rob and YOUNGBLOOD under the Image banner is the way things should be. Rob's passion behind the book embodies the purpose of Image: creators owning the work they hold most dear. Besides, it's a thrill to have him and the whole YOUNGBLOOD crew signing alongside me!"

YOUNGBLOOD #1 (NOV072009), a 32-page full color comic priced at $2.99, will be available in stores January 9th.
