Seriously, Rob?




This shit is getting really nasty.
I like Scott Snyder and from the interviews I’ve read/heard, he seems like a pretty down-to-earth and humble guy, not an egomaniac. I wish he’d stay out of this feud. Rob Liefeld’s rant has been aimed almost entirely at editors. Other creators should just let him vent his frustrations, which sound totally justified to me, and not get involved.

Escher Girls: Calling all Rob Liefeld fans

eschergirls:

I was talking to a friend today about Rob Liefeld, and he was telling me that as awful as Liefeld is, he sells really really well and that’s why he still gets work. And that’s fine. I mean, he’s definitely an influential figure in comics, even if it might not be for good things. His popularity was…

I have asked myself that same question so many times. How is it possible for an artist’s work to be almost universally disliked and for the artist to remain a power name in the industry with the ability to sell comics? It doesn’t make any sense at all!

My only theory is that Rob Liefeld fans are a completely different demographic. They don’t hang out on the same blogs, tumbls, forums, groups as we do. They’re probably mostly people who were fans of his in the 1990s and still love that awful esthetic that has gone out of style (and that DC is trying hard to bring back into style, judging from the New 52).

Remember there was a HUGE boom in the 1990s and it was all swirling around Rob Liefeld and his Extreme Studios. There’s got to be people who were kids or teenagers then and who are feeling nostalgic about it now. And presumably these people are hiding in the shadows. Or they just don’t hang out on the internet, for some reason.

I don’t know. It’s a mystery.

Rob Liefeld pages from Wizard

When coming up with a gesture, I don’t use any reference, but once it comes time to finish the drawing, well, I’ll look at everything from Victoria’s Secret catalogs to Maxim to my shapely wife for input.

I’m reblogging this as a link, because I honestly don’t want those horrendous drawings on my tumblr. But the above is a quote from Rob Liefeld about his method, and it explains a lot! He uses references at the end instead of at the beginning? And his references material ranges from Victoria’s Secret to Maxim?

That really speaks for itself. But click through for images and brief commentary from eschergirls and others.
