I think Stan was fucking with them. The name/premise is just too perfect to highlight their distinct lack of creativity.

Even though I can't see it, and even if it didn't happen in the 90s, it needs a 90s tag, please.
Mine too. I remember there being an actual thing in junior high where kids said "Oh, he doesn't draw the feet. The good artists don't draw the feet."
Then at some point I discovered Hokusai and Andy Warhol.

Belts and shoulder pads are how actual women dressed in the 80s.
Not that these guys have ever actually seen one.
That's not true, I'm sure they've seen them in magazines and movies.

It's finished in part 3. HUGE MAN WITH GUN HAND, CHAINS, AND STUBS FOR FEET.

Was Stan Lee ever young? Did these guys inspire Warcraft character models?
"No" the the first question.
"Yes" to the other one.
Kidding aside, I've only seen one picture of a youthful Stan Lee, which was taken around WWII/1940's. Most of the press photos of him were taken in the ealy-mid 1970's when he was already creeping into his mid 50's.
There's a clip on here with him on the 60s gameshow. Youngest I've ever seen him.
World of Warcraft? You wish.
nothing about those guys was original.
Blizzard's design was a combination of plagiarism / brain drain from Games Workshop.
One might even say that Blizzard are the Rob Liefeld of games.

Joke's on you: Overkill went on to become a best selling part of the Spawn line of action figures. =(
|misterbuns - 2012-11-20 |
This is amazing.
I like to think that Stan Lee is making fun these guys and the direction popular comics was heading in the 90's. The name of the character he gives these guys to design is 'Overkill'.
Both of them were known for absurd over the top turbo-masculine designs.
Stan Lee trolls deep.

1. So that's how you pronounce Liefeld.
2. Liefeld isn't wearing a backwards cap, but you can still see one.
3. Stan Lee is like a dirty mouthed mob uncle in the presence of idiot nephews.
4. The initial "never been done" excitement quickly turned into a disclaimer.
5. "You know what we can do when we're finished? Both of you guys can sign this..." Oh uncle Stan, you're such a delightful bastard!

"Well, I finally managed to kill the industry that I took all the credit for. Here's hoping I'll outlive Ditko so I can claim all his accomplishments for myself. Excelsior!"

Every horrible thing these two assholes did to comics right here.
I think I need to read Kingdom Come again.

80's! Rob's shelf cut and Todd's Miami Vice party on the yacht look. Stan's Stan look.

This is the first time I've ever seen these two in person. McFarlane sounds like he has brain damage. Liefeld sounds a bit like Randall Graves.
I agree with everyone here. Lee is obviously trolling them. He's putting their lack of talent on exhibit and they are oblivious to his mockery.
|Old_Zircon - 2012-11-21 |
It was five stars out of the gate, but when McFarlane starts talking that really drives it home.
A clabberation indeed.
|TeenerTot - 2012-11-21 |
"The kids like chains!"
|poorwill - 2012-11-21 |
McFarlane is even worse than Liefeld. Not at art (though he does suck), but he is just a horrible person.

"You can think and draw at the same time?" Five stars.
