Rob Liefeld Tells The Story Of Eve


Rob Liefeld's The Covenant is scheduled for June from Image Comics, as the Philistines steal the covenant from the Jews to use as a weapon of mass destruction. It looks like it's a one shot, and it's going to be followed by Eve And The Garden of Eden.


Liefeld writes,

I have several Bible themed projects coming out in 2015. Eve and The Garden of Eden chronicles the time and adventures that Eve experienced with Adam in their time in Paradise. Even the most conservative estimates put Adam and Eve in the Garden at least 100 years, we don't really believe they were laying around staring longingly at each other the entire time right? The Accuser had fallen from the Heavens and was plotting his destruction and poisoning of Paradise from the beginning. The art will be provided by a variety of illustrators working over my pencils, layouts and storytelling. A preview of the gorgeous work of Patrick Blaine and Mike Capprotti over my pencil roughs is featured here. This will arrive this fall, following The Covenant, Bloodstrike and Brigade!

I've always thought that Rob Liefeld should focus on one shot comics, it stops chapters being delayed, it allows Rob not to get bored and want to move onto something else and it enables him to create a library of projects without having to delegate. For all the criticism he gets there is something inherently Robby about a Rob Liefeld comic and it's something we should value.

It's also good to see him concentrating on his religious projects, a subject that he has always returned to through his superhero comics, from Chapel to Prophet to Zombie Jesus.

Probably would be an idea to get Brigade out sharpish though…
