NRAMA: But then, what you say yes to the offer?I was extremely disappointed that Liefeld's answer wasn't "Someone set us up the bomb!" (Actually, that response would probably be more appropriate coming from comic book fans learning that Liefeld was starting a new series before finishing his uncompleted projects, or from Marvel after they recalled Liefeld's track record with the company.)
Quesada also said that in the near future, readers should see a return line-wide of a return to more Kirby-esque art.Bonus points for the redundant "a return of a return" bit.

With Image Comics now under the guidance of Erik Larsen for the last month or so, we're now hearing about new projects that Erik's bringing to the "i." Last month CBR News told you about a new indy anthology called "Flight" headed up by Kazu Kibuishi. Sunday afternoon, CBR News ran into Kibuishi at Wizard World: Los Angeles who was excited to report that he's found a publisher and, you guessed it, it'll be Image Comics. Larsen saw the work of "Flight's" contributors at last months Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco and was impressed by what he saw. We'll bring you more on this story later this week.Wow, that's good news on two fronts: That "Flight" found a publisher, and that Image under Larsen is interested in putting out non-spandex material.
