Written by Rob Liefeld and Eric Stephenson Drawn by Dan Fraga Inked by Danny Miki and Rob Liefeld Colored by Thomas Mason Lettered by Kurt Hathaway Published by Image Comics This was a surprise that I hadn’t been expected, as I hadn’t heard any information about it even being developed. This just showed up in…

GLORY AND FRIENDS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL #1

Merry Christmas! In honor of the occasion, I will be reviewing this little comic-book, which was published in December 1995 by Image Comics, featuring various Rob Liefeld characters. The lead character, seen on the cover, is GLORY, Liefeld’s Wonder Woman analog. She’s a warrior princess from Amazonia, the Isle of Paradise (seriously). The issue opens…

BLOODPOOL

Written by Jo Duffy Drawn by Pat Lee Published by Image Comics Bloodpool was series of characters created by Rob Liefeld. The premise was that this was the program in which the U.S. Government recruited and then trained new superheroes for the YOUNGBLOOD team. A couple of members, Task and Psilence, had been introduced in…

Bloodstrike #2

This story opens with Professor Night (Liefeld’s analog of Batman…Liefeld has a lot of analogs of established superheroes) caught and getting brutally beaten by the young woman who acquired Bloodstrike’s penis last issue. She mentioned…

Bloodstrike #1

Written and drawn by Rob Liefeld Published by Image Comics This issue begins the latest incarnation of Rob Liefeld’s Bloodstrike. Love him or hate him, Rob Liefeld has his fans (of which I am one of them). And, at this point in his career, that’s specifically who he makes his comics for. So therefor I…

SUPREME BLUE ROSE

In January 2013, Erik Larsen’s brilliant but all-too-brief run on Rob Liefeld’s SUPREME came to an end with #68. Larsen left with the title with several dangling plot-threads, and I was curious to see whom Liefeld would enlist to follow-up on them. Tom Scioli publicly stated that he’d be pitching Rob Liefeld for the gig,…

SUPREME SACRIFICE #1

This issue was released in September 2006 via Rob Liefeld’s latest imprint (co-founded with Jimmy Jay), Arcade Comics. This was meant to be the kickoff of a new storyline featuring Supreme, apparently in an attempt to reconcile and/or merge the original Supreme with the Alan Moore version of Supreme. It featured two stories, and was…

Brigade #1 (featuring KID SUPREME)

This issue was published in July 2000 by Rob Liefeld’s Awesome Comics. Written by Larry Stucker and drawn by Deitrich Smith, this is a new incarnation of the team, not connected to the original series. The story revolves around S.P.I.C.E. an artificially intelligent robot (built to look and act like a teenager girl) was programmed…

SUPREME by Alan Moore

Alan Moore, a man considered by many (including myself) to be The Greatest Comic-Book Writer Of All Time, was hired by Rob Liefeld to take over the SUPREME series, beginning with issue #41. That’s quite a coup for this series. As I’ve said in my previous reviews of this series, one of the biggest drawbacks…

SUPREME #0, #32-40

Along with variant covers and swimsuit editions, a new trend in the comic-book industry that picked up in the 1990’s was “zero issues”. Publishers would release issues of certain series as #0, usually to be part of some special storyline or tell a significant story. In August 1995 Rob Liefeld’s Extreme Studios line at Image…

SUPREME in BRIGADE #17-21

Brigade began as a spin-off title of Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood, featuring new original superheroes of his. In February 1995 there was a radical revamp of the series, launching in the aftermath of Liefeld’s EXTREME SACRIFICE crossover, with issue #17. Now it would be a team made up of not just some of Liefeld’s characters, but…

SUPREME #24-31

At some point in recent issues it must have been decided that the original concept of SUPREME just wasn’t working. I’m unable to find sales charts for the month of November 1992, when SUPREME #1 came out, but I’m willing to bet that like most of the early Image titles, and particular those published by…

SUPREME #19-23

This next batch of issues that I’m reviewing continues the revolving door of creative teams. Rob Liefeld is credited with “story” on issues #20, 22–23, with Kurt Hathaway scripting #19–21, and then Gary Carlson takes over as scripter for #22-23. Artists on the ensuing issues include Marat Mychaels, Cedric Nocon, Joe Bennett, and Mark Pajarillo.…

Keith Giffen’s SUPREME

Writer/artist Keith Giffen joined Image Comics in 1993, with his creator-owned series TRENCHER, which, according to Wikipedia featured “a zombie-like anti-hero named Gideon Trencher, as he endeavors to complete his mission of exterminating souls that had been “wrongfully reincarnated”. It’s Gideon’s job to hunt down these beings, with the assistance of a voice in his…

SUPREME MADNESS

SUPREME MADNESS is a 6-part story, the first full Supreme-centric crossover, which ran from SUPREME #13-18 and firmly established Supreme within the broader Image Comics Universe at the time, as opposed to simply just Rob Liefeld’s Extreme Studios corner of Image. This arc benefited from a coherent, if simple, storyline. Rob Liefeld is credited with…
