Rob Liefeld has made a deal with Adi Shankar‘s 1984 Private Defense Contractors to turn his comic Bloodstrike into a feature. The comic centers on “a Bloodstrike unit consisting of a team of super-soldiers who have secretly been imbued with vampire blood—making them an elite strike force feared by all enemies.” According to Variety, Shankar and Liefeld will produce along with Liefeld’s manager Brooklyn Weaver (The Number 23). They are conceiving of Bloodstrike as a possible franchise.
Liefeld helped found Image Comics in 1992 and launched Bloodstrike in 1993, selling over 30 million copies in the years since. Hit the jump for background information on the series.
