Youngblood: Bloodsport #2 was delayed endlessly...
The image in the database is for the "real" finished issue, but I can't find any proof that it ever actually was finished and released.
Furthermore, the only copies I can find of this book for sale anywhere are the "bootleg" edition which has BOOTLEG
faux-stamped over "YOUNGBLOOD
" on the cover.
Here is the image currently in our database:
I've seen a lot of chatter when googling this that the issue was solicited for a September 2008 release (all such chatter was also accompanied by different artwork for the cover), but nobody ever seems to have actually gotten theirs.
Here is a scan of the copy I just obtained from padreglc (thanks Jeremiah!!):yeah yeah, somebody scribbled all over it with Sharpie...
As you can plainly see, "BOOTLEG
" is across the upper left corner.
This comic is unfinished (hence the "bootleg"):
pages 1-4, 6, and 11-13 are finished, pages 5, 8-10, and 14 are rough pencils, and pages 7 & 15-18 are just Mark Millar's script pages.
Since I can't find any compelling evidence that this issue ever was actually finished and properly released, I'm leaning toward the assumption that what we've currently got in the database is promo art, which would mean some CR work is needed on this item.
Does anybody here actually possess a real finished copy of this book?
Any help finding proof of a real finished issue would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
