    Only took twenty years to get to #75!

    Can we please stop taking this seriously?

    Next you'll be telling me the movie's in pre-production, script limbo hell with thirty minutes of footage no one is allowed to see.

    I'm still trying to figure out how they got to 75. 10+11+2+9+4= 36.
    Do they count all the issues they solicited but never actually produced?

    Because McLaughlin and Malin are making Youngblood an entertaining series? At least that's why I keep buying the series.

    ladies and gentlemen THAT is the very definition of scraping the barrel. (not what Dark Flux did just that Liefeld needs to do that to justify 75 issues.)

    Think about it, it's been 20 years, I would be embarrassed if there where only 75 issues of a book no one really cared about in that time and an embarrassing, not to mention totally unaware fool to actually add them all up and virtually show that to the world. At least if it's in volumes you can just say hiatus in between (which is in fairness sort of true) but to point out that you've been around for twenty years with only 75 issues of a comic that you supposedly consider a bit of an opus AND to re-launch at #75 when there's not an actual 1-75 is confusing to the potential new readers and doesn't lend itself to a 'great jumping on point'.

    Thanks for the support, Pil! I'm certainly excited for where the book is headed and hope you will be when you find out!

    If you're not interested in the book, don't read it. Like I don't. You don't have to be an ass about it.

    I hope you guys give the book a try*. Listen to a CBR forums alum ;)

    This issue and the next one (a self-contained flashback story featuring BADROCK) are great jumping-on points for the book's new direction.

    *especially if you're a fan of the original Image line-up of the 90s or the fame-obsessed superheroes boom of the 00s (like a certain character who's still hovering about in my avatar after 10 years)
