Break out the celebratory Jolt Cola and the most offensive flavor of Doritos you can get your hands on! Superstar artist and comics luminary Sir Robert Liefeld continued his winning streak this week as Youngblood #1, the relaunch of the hit series he launched as one of the original Image Founders in 1992, has sold out and gone back to press for a second printing, according to Liefeld himself:
Official announcement forthcoming but YOUNGBLOOD #1 is SOLD OUT and going back to press!!! Thank you fans!!

Liefeld’s star power is so strong, Youngblood managed to sell out with Liefeld writing or drawing the comic (aside from a variant cover). Those honors belong to Chad Bowers and Jim Towe, and it looks like they’ve managed to hit the Liefeld lottery merely by being associated with the Youngblood brand. Radical!
If you missed out on picking up a copy of Youngblood #1 yesterday, fear not! A second printing should be in stores soon (probably by the time issue #2 comes out). Or, you could always pick up a DRM-free digital copy here. We’ll let you know when we know more.
