In the late ’90s, Alan Moore had a bit of a lull in his career. It was after his exit from DC and before he started up LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN and AMERICA’S BEST COMICS with WildStorm (almost exactly when DC bought WildStorm). The person who gave Alan Moore a job was Rob Liefeld, over at his Extreme imprint. Moore did a very retro take on SUPREME and wrote a run of YOUNGBLOOD. The thing is, not all of those scripts were drawn or published.
No more! (Pun intended.)
Over at Robot 6, we find out Extreme is relaunching and those old Moore scripts are getting produced. Erik Larsen will be doing Moore’s final SUPREME script and the quickly aborted YOUNGBLOOD series is to be resurrected.
“We have a great number of his scripts including several “Youngblood” issues that we will produce in the next year. Alan was in his peak form back then. “Supreme” fueled his comic book come back and many of his Extreme ideas became the basis of the former ABC line. We will showcase the best that Alan did at that period of his career.”
Now about the last installment of 1968… <ducks head>
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
