Robert Kirkman is re-teaming with Rob Liefeld, the artist he once described as “the modern-day equivalent of Jack Kirby,” for a science fiction adventure called The Infinite.
USA Today reports the series, which debuts in August from Kirkman’s Image imprint Skybound, centers on a soldier who travels back in time to recruit his 19-year-old self, and others, to help defeat a future world-conquering villain called The Infinite. “It’s a buddy movie with yourself,” Liefeld says.
The two previously worked together on Image United, and had planned to collaborate on a Killraven miniseries for Marvel (however, that project never materialized).
“We both like tech gear, James Cameron, Star Trek and Star Wars,” Liefeld tells the newspaper, “so it’s a big sci-fi fantasy epic, but it’s got a lot of heart.”
