Are we willing to surgically remove cast member's feet for the movie, or are we looking entirely for lower limb amputees that we can attach spiky feet to?

I've seen parents drag children to movies like Wanted and the Resident Evil films, I am sure plenty will take them to see this simply because it's a comic movie, or they couldn't even attemp to find a baby sitter.

It's not simply that his artwork sucks, his characters were complete trash.  I loved New Mutants and they got invaded by...  Shatterstar?  Feral?  Domino?  Cable?  What the fark, man?  Was there a single personality in the bunch?

I was getting older at that point, but that hastened my exit from comics.  I was gone.

Hahaha, the funny thing about this one is that he DIDN'T draw Enchantress' legs so long. He actually deformed them with Photoshop because he miscalculated and didn't want to have an empty block in the lower part of the panel.

And that's the origin of everything wrong with Liefeld: He doesn't know how to do composition. He starts drawing "as is" and just notices certain details after the fact. It's why his work is plagued with unseen feet, extended legs, bent swords/rifles, afterthought hands, empty spaces, etc.

Mugato: So I take it comic book nerds don't like this fella.


Apparently in person he's too nice to really HATE but no one buys his comics for his mastery of the medium. I'm not sure why anyone buys his comics actually. He's sort of like that slow kid in grade school that stole your apple slices but you can't really get mad at him because his mom buys you your own pizza when you stay over.

That's really why his artwork is so messed up!  He just doesn't understand composition and how to properly lay out comic panels.  His stories were okay.  You can critize him but many others imitated him for a while.

Why Liefeld gets so much hate and not MacFarlane for his crappy Spawn artwork I don't understand.

Liefeld was a symbol of the 90s excesses that. ritually destroyed the comic book industry. Of course, the same could be said about at least half of the Image founders.

But, Liefeld is still around, while McFarlane farked off to play with Mark McGwire's balls.

You know, I never realized that the spine was supposed to be at a 45 degree angle from the pelvis into the thoracic vertebrae. Or that the aspect ratio of leg to torso is supposed to be 1.5:1.

If you haven't read it yet, go down to the link on Neil Gaiman's testimony against Todd McFarlane and read the transcript. You'll get some interesting insight from Neil like 'these guys (Image) clearly had never written a story before in their lives.' and at the DragonCon autograph table Neil and Todd shared when they first met 'both of us had lines that went out into the hallway. Todd's consisted of 14 and unders, while mine started at 16 years old and went up.'

MacFarlane is messy, and often inordinately busy, but he has a basic understanding of anatomy and proportion. He tosses it fair often, but Liefeld just hopped on the comics bandwagon when he could, and crapped all over it. MacFarlane created buzz in the field, and it got a independent comics a boost for a bit. And that was good for the industry, even if Image trotted out bubblegum comics, while Dark Horse put out the quality stuff, it was still a boost for a lot of guys who came up, and gave some great artists more attention. Liefeld is just the Michael Bay of comics. No, that's unfair, because Bay did produce Pain and Gain, which was fair funny, while Leifeld just threw up badly drawn tripe. MacFarlane at least planned his books a bit, while Liefeld couldn't be bothered.

I think the main reason most comic fans hate Rob Liefeld is because we all personally know someone who can draw (or write)  far better than he can, and these people remained unknown, weren't hired by Marvel and DC, given oodles of money, and allowed to run amok in their respective universes... But Rob Liefeld was given all of that, and there's  nothing to explain why anyone at any comic book company would look at his piss-poor work and say "You're hired!" when they KNOW there are far more talented people out there.

We hate Rob Liefeld because he simply  does not deserve the life he has. He's a §hitty artist and a terrible writer and he's consistently rewarded for being a half-assed embarrassment to comic books in general.

He gets his fair share, not enough for me, but MacFarlane gets his share of shiat.  Having his ass handed to him in court by Gaiman makes me warm and fuzzy.

back in 94 I got to witness MacFarlane be a diva like douche nozzle to a girl no older than 10.
She was an aspiring comic artist , was taking her sketch book around to various artists at a Dallas Fantasy Fair and was looking for tips etc...and honestly for a child her skills were pretty amazing... when she got to "Toddy" he pulled this "well...if I look at your sketch book, I'd have to look at everyones sketch book and frankly I'm to important to do that".

though in relation to Liefeld, MacFarlane at least came up with something akin to an original idea...dumb ideas but at least they weren't complete and utter rip offs.

Greg Land may be a hack because he copies and traces more than actually drawing, but at least his figures have human-like anatomy.

The only time exaggerated work has ever impressed me in comics was when Bill Sienkiewicz was on New Mutants decades ago... But Liefeld is no Sienkiewicz.
