Youngblood #8, due in FebruarySavage Dragon, Amazing Spider-Man and now Youngblood.
Image Comics has announced that President Barack Obama will appear in February’s Youngblood #8. In the six page story written and drawn by Rob Liefeld, Obama will make his first major superhero-related initiative public.
From Image’s release:
"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!"
The Liefeld penned six-page back-up story will see America's 44th President begin his term by selecting the next line-up of YOUNGBLOOD to protect the country after the team's radical changes set forth in Joe Casey and Derec Donovan's fan-favorite run. This leads into May's YOUNGBLOOD #9, in which Liefeld returns to the book full-time and President Obama comes into play as the White House comes under siege.
