Rob Liefeld is planning a reunion of his memorable Extreme Studios company for a special signing at Orange, California's Big Red Comics. Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the company's founding, Liefeld and 13 artists and writers who worked at Extreme Studios will be doing a signing March 30 at Big Red Comics in Orange, California. A special limited edition program is scheduled to be published for the occasion.
Artists scheduled to join Liefeld are Jeff Matsuda, Dan Fraga, Andy Park, Shannon Eric Denton, Chap Yaep, Todd Nauck, Marat Mychaels, Norm Rapmund, Art Thibert, Danny Miki, Matt Hawkins, Dan Panosian, and Karl Altstaetter.
“I am beyond thrilled to be working together with these amazing artists as well as reuniting with them back together after 25 years.” said Liefeld. “I was fortunate to see the unique potential in each of these artists when they were just starting out and give many of them their very first, or their biggest break in the comics industry. Watching them build their impressive resumes over the years and help shape the entertainment industry for the past two decades has been one of the highlights of my 30 year career."
This event is similiar to two tours Liefeld's Extreme Studios ran in 1993 and 1994, where the cartoonist and several of his collaborators participated in book tours across North America.
