Besties Robert Kirkman and Rob Liefeld will team on a new SFish book called THE INFINITE for Kirkman’s Skybound imprint at Image, USA Today reports.
In the future, the world has fallen to a villain who has discovered time travel. A soldier named Bowen goes back to visit his 19-year-old self, Bo, at a turning point in his life and to persuade him and others to help defeat “The Infinite” and prevent impending doom.
“A lot of people in comic books are trying to save the world. Not a lot of them are trying to save the world after having seen it destroyed,” says Kirkman, who is releasing The Infinite on his Image imprint, Skybound.
Adds Liefeld: “It’s a buddy movie with yourself.”
The duo had previously been cooking up some schemes for an aborted Killraven relaunch at Marvel — so perhaps some of the ideas for that post-apocalyptic adventure will find their way to THE INFINITE. Liefeld notes that he’ll be able to draw in his original Image style — news that some in the comments section equate with tiny ankles.
