Yesterday on twitter, Rob Liefeld announced that he is leaving DC Comics. With Issue #0 of Deathstroke, Grifter, and Hawkman being his final issues on those respective titles. His tweets detailed that he wasn’t happy with the last minute changes, editorial interference, and it echoed a lot of statements DC writers have had within the New 52.
I have read a lot of comic books in my life. In fact I am a lifetime fan and consider myself an expert on the genre. Of all the artists who have ever put pen to paper, there is no one that I despise more than Liefeld. When I think of all the artists out there begging for a shot I get infuriated. Liefeld was given SO MANY CHANCES to improve on the defects in his art and after 25 years he has only gone backwards. How he keeps getting work from the DC or Marvel is beyond my understanding.
In the past couple of days I have been enjoying a Twitter war between Liefeld and the editors of DC. Finally, someone creative and talented took on this bratty punk and let him have it in the way you only can on Twitter.
That has provoked response from others who have suffered from Liefeld's lack of talent all these years. This one is my favorite and pretty much sums up what I feel about the crap that Liefeld puts out there.
Isn't this 'Fighting American' just a bastardized version of Caption America.
Protip: if you ever have to start a rant/comment/conversation with, “I’m not homophobic, but…” whatever you are about to spew from your talking-hole is definitely going to be homophobic.
AND MOST OF ALL? FUCK YOUR ANATOMY FAIL. HOW IN THE EVERLOVING FUCK DO THESE LOOK LIKE HUMAN BODIES TO YOU.
The above are all examples of “artwork” by the illustrious Rob Liefeld. So what we’ve learned in Professor Liefeld’s human anatomy 101 class today kids, is that all women have 6-inch waists, 40DDD breasts at LEAST, no rib cages to speak of and all female legs must be at least 3 yards long, minimum. Men all have chests that look like vacuum-packed bulk-buy economy steak packages at BJ’s Wholesale, and protrude at least six inches out from their collarbones. All male biceps must exceed 22 inches in diameter, and necks must remain nearly as thick. Feet do not exist on anyone. Anywhere. Ever. ALSO NO ONE IS GAY EXCEPT LESBIANS BECAUSE THAT’S LIKE HOT AND STUFF.
