Sneak Peek: Youngblood #8

Published on January 15th, 2009

Are you just downright pissed because you missed your chance at this week’s Amazing Spider-man (#583) with Barack Obama? No need to fret – thanks to Image Comics and Rob Liefeld, it looks likes the comic world Obamathon is not done just yet.

In his second major comic book appearance to date, America’s 44th President will begin his term by selecting the next line-up of Youngblood, choosing the team that will protect the country after the radical changes set forth in the Joe Casey and Derec Donovan run.

“Obama re-instating the YOUNGBLOOD program with his picks is a natural, with SAVAGE DRAGON having featured Obama already,” Liefeld told Comic Book Resources.  “And with YOUNGBLOOD having featured George H. Bush in its past as well as a Saddam Hussein styled guy and YOUNGBLOOD featured alongside Dan Quayle in WILDC.A.Ts and Bill Clinton in SUPREME, Image has a long history of involving presidential figures!” (from Comic Book Resources)

Stay tunes; this issue of Youngblood will be in-stores February 2009.
