EXTREME ANTHOLOGY ANNOUNCED
A new Brigade series ready to go and Bloodstrike had already been revived, Youngblood has been announced and now an Extreme Anthology is coming out.
Liefeld says “There is an Extreme Anthology book because, A, I love anthologies and I love these characters… we’ve got great stories for them and we figure that that’s a great place for people to familiarize themselves. I remember when we launched Darker Image, Bloodwulf appeared for the fist time in a million comics. People love Darker Image and then we never followed it up. That was a kick ass book with three medium sized stories. So I’ve wanted to revisit that. Certainly Bloodwulf will be in this Extreme Anthology.”
Liefeld continued “I’m not going to flood the market. We’ll do selective stories, selective arcs, and then at the end of the year, we’ll be collecting the material. I love collections. We’re going to collect the original stories for the first time, as well. Very little of the ’90s stories have been collected. Bloodstrike No. 1 was a book that I laid out, we had young talent at the time — it gave me a chance to control the storytelling — and we’re going to recolor and reissue that so that people can have an affordable version of that. Re-Gex No. 1, I did with [Marvel TV head] Jeph Loeb, we’re doing a new edition of that. But, yes. There’ll also be new adventures. We’ll do a couple of story arcs. We’ve got a lot of the Extreme talent working on new material, some of them are already back at work on it. Marat Mychaels, who was the original artist on Brigade, is working on it again.
And again, the fans love this stuff. On my desk right now, I have a bunch of books from ’92 and ’93, and I looked at the layouts of this stuff, I looked at the visuals, and I’m telling you, we at Image Comics and Extreme Studios, we pushed the boundaries of storytelling. We had big, bold, colorful characters, and we had interesting conflicts. I just think, especially aesthetically, there’s a visual direction we gave great care to. That’s fun.”http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/extreme-anthology-announced/http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Extreme-Studios-Logo-600x257.pnghttp://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Extreme-Studios-Logo-150x64.pngNews
