“Most of the great graphic novels are gone, and ‘Youngblood’ is one of the few comicbooks left with tentpole potential,” Ratner told Daily Variety. “It was a real personal passion project for me, and a lot of people wanted (‘Youngblood’), but the amazing thing about the guys at Reliance is the speed with which they’re able to move.”
I would love someone (not Ratner) to try and bring Squadron Supreme to the big screen. It was a pretty awesome mini series.
And John, thanks for that link. I have never been a fan of Liefeld's work and they are spot on with every critique. Liefeld just doesn't understand how the human body is supposed to look.

"I remember meeting a mother of a child who was abducted by the North Koreans right here in the Oval Office." — George W. Bush - June 26, 2008, during a Rose Garden news briefing.
Took a nephew to this yesterday. Visuals were great, plot was kinda stupid. The "oh noes, it didn't work...oh, wait, it did" was kind of a deal-breaker. Looks beautiful, but can't recommend. Music is darned pretty, though.
