And Gail Simone writes it.

Just in time for me to run out of toilet paper.

This is out already? I hit House of Secrets at 2, and there was no sign of it, no "New" card, nada.

Can it be Burbank has THAT many Liefeld fans?!?

Just from seein the covers online, I know it blows. I haven't really been blown away by any of the Titans artists on the new book, but at least they were competent.

Can't say the same about the latest though.

did anyone see the "how to draw wonder girl" by liefeld in wizard a few months back? and on the website he did a "how to draw robin."

it was really impressive to see how he took a rather loose and, frankly, decent, thumbnail, and step by step made it stiffer and more anatomically incorrect. then he threw all those great useless lines all over them. not to mention wonder girl looked like a she male with her man-hands and bulging crotch.

I love how everyone on that second cover is looking to the right, except for Robin.

He's just staring the reader down.

All those years in the industry and he still can't learn the basics of anatomy.
There's also a recent cover of X-Force where one of the characters has fingers that are all the same length.

he is really so incredibly bad - completely without an ounce of value.

i recall many months ago at a comicshop seeing his printed sketchbook which was so full of uselessness i could barely resist buying it. resist though i did, for the fact of not wanting any of my money being used towards his gain. he had some of his hollywood concepts which he claimed were in demand for movies and stuff. does anyone have this? if so, please scan some of those pages - the one with the spy mom carrying what is supposed to be a baby is particularily pathetic. so very funny.

And the cover says, daringly, "You know you want it!" which is really what every Liefeld-drawn comic is saying.

Yeah....I bought it. I'll scan when I have time.

HOW DO PEOPLE STILL HIRE ROB LIEFELD?!! Seriously, at what point does it become a good idea so say "Let's get Rob Liefeld to do this series!"?
I dare anyone to draw this picture from the back angle & make it look anatomically correct. Or even just draw it without the shield...

The last one CANNOT be real! Please, tell me it's manipulated, because if they published
the Cap that way, there must be something really really wrong in the industry.

Oh man that's bad!

I just checked out his site. Must he always draw someone randomly flying or punching in each background? I remember when YoungBlood first came out, you'd think that he'd have gotten the hang of drawing by now.

Good lord... Captian America needs a bra...
