Notice that nobody's feet are visible at any point.
wow did they pay for this?
"but you have to give him a lot of credit for creating some of the coolest characters around... Deadpool, Cable, Domino, and Shatterstar"
Deadpool yes, Cable sort of, but Domino and Shatterstar? Really? Who gives a shit about those?
Getting shit done before deadline trumps actually being good in a lot more places than just comics, unfortunately.
By most accounts the comic industry is full of prima donna artists who miss deadlines on a regular basis. Liefeld, despite his majestically hideous art style, has never been one of those people. That counts for a lot.
Seven Arts/H8 Red
Liefeld missed deadlines in the mid-1990s. He was the worst at deadlines when he was part of Image Comics, and during that abortive attempt to repurpose unused Captain America artwork and stories as "Fighting American."
Liefeld should have become a sales agent. His skills in that field are miles beyond his "artwork" and "writing."
If this Shatterstar guy can master any weapon by touching it, why does he even have a sword? If I was him my gimmick would be grabbing random objects to use in a flurry of improvised weapons. Why be four hundredth jerk with a spiky sword when you can be the psycho who kicked Colossus' ass with a hair dryer, a dead bird, and an old shopping bag. Every pre-battle scene would have a panorama shot, and your opponents mentally cataloging every object within 20 feet of you and how much it would hurt to have it smashed into their face or shoved up their ass. Hang out in hardware departments and auto parts stores, if your enemy sucks then challenge them in a produce department or lingerie boutique. Or grab your genitals all "Wanna find out how this can ruin their life?" That works pretty well even without superpowers.
'Rob Liefeld has created some of the most durable character designs in modern comics. No small feet.' That's an unfortunate slip.
OHMYGOD, that's DEADPOOL!
How did they get Deadpool to show up?! Does he have a booking agency or something? Does Mr Liefeld know him personally?!? Ohwowohwowohwow.
Only way this day could get any better is if Domino shows up.
