Liefeld Agonistes

It is perhaps unfair to spend several gloating pages over how awful an artist (and writer, but let's stick to artist) Rob Liefeld is, with many, many, forty even examples to show it.

His shortcomings are not unique. Walt Simonson sometimes plays sketchily fast and loose with proportion. Arthur Adams had foot problems.

But Liefeld exemplifies the wretched Age of Image in comics, and remains considered today a major talent, even if he can't draw women, men, hands, feet, legs, guns, or all those ridiculous belts of pouches he still wraps around people's legs.

This is from 2007. He's not improved with another five years.
