Liefeld actually improves with eyes closed.
Your eyes, that is.

Also... his left leg looks like he got a calf implant on top of his upper leg,  the right leg he just gave two sh*ts about and gave up 25% of the way through.  And apparently Batman cut his tackle off or learned to tuck it all inside his butt.

Nothing about the expression on his face that looks like he just pooped his batpants?

That's standard Liefeld. Batman has 108 tiny evenly sized teeth in his pert mouth. If they weren't clenched you couldn't get a soda straw into his mouth. Also note that Picasso style, Batman's crotch is rotated at a 30degree angle from his legs and torso.

His right fist appears smaller than the left, and if you didn't look carefully one might assume it ended in a stump rather than a tightly coiled fist. This may be the fewest pouches he has ever drawn on a character. Also, Batman needs a two tanged sword drawn with a straight edge to really get the Escher aesthetic that Liefeld has refreshingly pioneered.

It looks like he was gonna draw a gun/sword into his hands but couldn't find his eraser.

Also the weird shadow/line on the top of his head makes it look like someone already caved in Batman's skull.

Actually there seem to be too few for Liefeld.

Quick, everyone name 3 comic book artists who aren't Rob Liefeld!

Not that the hates undeserved, but it seems to be the only thing so many people know about comics so that's all they have to talk about. Just gets tiresome.

I'm gonna start going into every art thread to make fun of Thomas Kinkade.

And well you should. Hackneyed, cliche painting that only really appeals to the suburban housemom demo.

Land sucks too, but youd never hear about it here.

Dont get me wrong, im not defending Liefeld, if i were ever at a con he was attending i would love to get one of these signed by him for teh lulz, but its just that around here at least you never see anyone debating if Alex Rosss work is classic or cliched, or how awesome the stuff David Ajas been putting out is, or Jack Kirbys indomitable legacy, its just people parroting "lol Liefeld cant draw feet lol". Congratulations, you know that one thing about comic books, go learn something else.

Been loving David Aja's work on Hawkeye and Chris Samnee's on Daredevil. Humberto Ramos' work on Superior Spiderman, on the other hand, totally sucks balls. He's gone full Liefeld, and everyone knows you never go full Liefeld.

Like...if Chris Claremont's writing, he almost doesn't need an artist, what with the narration boxes, speech bubbles and thought balloons? Or if Perez is writing, get ready for 80s style storytelling?


OH! Most important, don't date Green Lantern if you don't wanna end up in a fridge.

You hear about Land and his porn tracing all the time around here. He just isn't as big a player as Liefeld, who dominated the 90s Dark Ages of Comics. I know that's the decade I bailed out of comics, wondering why everything looked so crummy
