MCFARLANE COVERS THE INFINITE

December 31, 1969

Kirkman & Liefeld’s The Infinite #2 to Feature Variant Cover by Todd McFarlane

Berkeley,
CA – 12 August 2011 – THE INFINITE already boasts a creative team-up of
epic proportions, but now Todd McFarlane, Image founder and creator of
the ongoing SPAWN series, will be jumping into the fray with a one time
only bloody new variant cover for THE INFINITE #2! The cover will
feature an outstanding collaboration of pencils by Rob Liefeld and inks
by McFarlane that manages to simultaneously show off the signature
styles of both iconic artists on one cover!


In
THE INFINITE, Robert Kirkman, Image Comics COO and creator of THE
WALKING DEAD and INVINCIBLE, and Liefeld, creator of Deadpool, Cable and
YOUNGBLOOD, have joined forces to create an action-packed tale of an
aging freedom fighter who must travel back in time to team up with his
20-year-old self in order to save the world!


Liefeld
commented on his recent collaboration with McFarlane: “It was a treat
to work with Todd again! I couldn’t wait to see how it would turn out,
and it was better than I expected! We’re both really pleased with this
cover, and I think the fans will agree.”


“If
you remember Rob’s work on New Mutants back in the early ‘90s, then you
definitely remember the fantastic covers Rob and Todd collaborated on
for that series,” said Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “They
make a great team, and considering this is only the second time they’ve
done a cover together in over 20 years, it’s a true event!”


THE
INFINITE #2 (JUL110528), a 32-page full-color sci-fi action comic for
$2.99, featuring several limited variant covers including the McFarlane
variant (JUL118004), will be on sale in stores September 14.
