Liefeld Update:
Joe Casey New Writer On Youngblood

Joe Casey -- whose credits include "Adventures of Superman," "Wildcats," & "G.I. Joe: America's Elite" -- is going to be the co-writer on the "Youngblood" revamp.

Ethan Van Sciver is quoted as commenting on the Newsarama message board,

"This is the best news I've ever heard in my entire life."

Reactions on the board were split between "awesome" and "meh."

But as Erik Larsen commented,

"Obviously not every book is for every reader. There's no one title that is bought and enjoyed by every person that has posted in this thread much less to every reader who frequents a comic book store across this country.

That having been said--there are people that are clearly very enthusiastic about both Rob and Youngblood and I expect readers to absolutely go nuts for this new series, which really embraces the best of everything Youngblood."

My take? I have a certain nostalgia for the early Image books, so I am a little biased. I'm not jumping off the chandelier apeshit over the news, but I think it's interesting & Casey is a decent writer.
