When even Rob Liefeld thinks your company is farked up, you have problems.

Also, seeing in this article about how there's no creative freedom and editorial is farking with everything, why do they even bother having big name people on books? Just do it like they did it in the old days... the editor tells them what to write, the "writer" comes in with a script the editor changes to suit his whim, and no one gets credited for the book.

Did the editor ask him to draw feet?

Alan Moore's writing couldn't even make Liefeld's comics readable.

Jesus farkballs, he's not even trying to cover it up anymore is he.

Reminds me of another artist whose name escapes me, but he pretty much just traced movie posters and other artists work and passed it off as his own.

The inimitable Mr. Land? Gotta give props to a guy that figured out he could trace porn pics and make money, and not "drawing for Heavy Metal" money at that.

That was Image for you. All the artists were their own bosses. No wonder that company fell apart rather quickly.

If arms had that much muscle volume, they'd be useless as they could no longer bend. And what the hell is that supposed to be anyway?

One of my friends raised an excellent point. If Liefeld, who loves comics and comics work with a passion (skill be damned) is leaving DC due to creative differences and freaking George Perez is hinting at similar problems, what the hell is going on over there?

Someone should do an anatomical study of the Rob Liefeld Woman with the assumed skeleton and musculature.

Shiat, I just glanced at Glory's waist, glimpsed between arm and boobs. THE MAN IS A NO-TALENT ASSCLOWN.

LOOK AT GLORY'S SWORD! Her hand is in front of her body, the sword rises straight up... AND GOES BEHIND HER BOOBS. It's a goddamn never-ending staircase of tits and blades, which is pretty much Leifeld in a single phrase.

DrMcNinja: He seems to get worse with time. Is this normal?


If he has Alzheimer's or Parkinson's... yes.
The wife says it looks like he forgets to actually draw everything out before adding details, and skips the "where is everything" stage to add a few more cross hatches to her tits.

Who the fark is buying his shiat? Well, I bought a signed copy of one of his comics as a joke gift to my brother, but I mean where are his fans? You don't even get the occasional white knighter for him. His continued production defies logic.

That's the one! Can't decide what's worse, the blatant ripping off of other artists work, recycling, or pron tracing.
