Break out the Jolt cola and the most obnoxious flavor of Doritos you can get your hands on! Superstar artist and comics luminary Sir Robert Liefeld is assembling the band again for an Extreme Studios 25th anniversary celebration! According to a report on Newsarama, Liefeld will join with artists 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 at Big Red Comics in Orange, California to meet with fans and party like it’s 1992. It’s great to see Liefeld and Fraga getting along again after their troubles back in the day.
Announcing the event, Liefeld humbly explained how the fates of all these artists became entwined when Rob Liefeld discovered them, saying, “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.”
The reunion takes place on March 30, so you may want to camp out outside the store starting early next week to make sure you get in. In 2017, Rob Liefeld and Extreme Studios are riding as high as ever before with a relaunch of Youngblood and other Extreme properties at Image, a deal with Akiva Goldsman to develop the Extreme Universe into multiple cinematic franchises, the success of Deadpool, and an Avengelyne movie, just to name a few current projects.
