Marvel Fan PWNS Rob Liefeld At 2009 Wizard World Chicago

This has been circulating for several days but I didn't find out about it until literally five minutes ago. Needless to say the fact that I am posting about it at such blazing speed should convince you that you need to make one of two choices:

A) IF YOU ARE A MARVEL COMICS FAN, YOU SHOULD READ THIS

B) IF YOU HATE THE ARTWORK OF ROB LIEFELD, YOU MUST READ THIS

First, a quick primer. If you aren't familiar with the artwork of Rob Liefeld, let me give you a crash course:





The pictures don't lie. If you want to check out The 40 Worst Rob Liefeld Drawings, you can do that too, but I suggest you continue reading on for now (you can always check out the multiple train-wrecks later.)

Now granted, Liefeld has made big, big money doing what he loves to do -- namely, drawing superhero comics. So no one can take that away from him. But the truth is, Rob Liefeld does not know how to draw. He has also ripped-off drawings from past artists. He doesn't know anatomy either. Just look at that f#@king Captain America for god's sake. Liefeld has become somewhat of a legend in that thousands of comics fans have rallied against his horrible art for many years.

Alright, here's where we're going with this. A few weeks ago during the Wizard World show in Chicago, some dude mustered up the ca hones to approach Liefeld at a signing table -- to hand him a copy of this book:


I had this book as a kid and it is awesome. It's even more awesome now that someone handed a copy of it to Rob Liefeld! Here are some pics taken at Liefeld's table:


The result? Liefeld was PISSED! For the entire story, head over to SuperFunAdventureTime...

Note: Special thanks to my friend G, the first person to point out to me just how terrible Rob Liefeld's art is!

  2. Now, when Liefeld came on the scene he was a pretty cool artist. Really rough around the edges, but he had something that hadn’t been seen up to that point. Unfortunately in the 20 years since he hasn’t progressed ONE IOTA! And thus, a million other artists have FAR more of that something then he ever had. Fucking hell Frank Miller’s stuff looks more fresh!

    I know that there are only so many poses you can draw a character in…but this is just uncanny, dude doesn’t even try.
