The 40 Worst Rob Liefeld Drawings

I've been watching VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's. Big songs made when I was in a band picked on by big comedians that have been on my show. It's an odd experience.

But it's made me think about my 20's. In the 90's comics were huge and terrible. Rob Liefeld was a big reason why. He got very big very young, and it ruined his career. Instead of taking years to develop as an artist, he learned every cheat in the business. When he needed the strong hand of an editor, he started his own company. And when he didn't understand anatomy, he made it up. Fifteen years ago, his name was iconic. Now it's a joke. Want to know why? Take a look at this list of his 40 worst drawings.

I owned a comic book store in the 80's and 90's, and recognized Leifeld's "drawings" for the crap they were right from the very start. This rectal wart with a pen needs to be sent to the nearest Soylent Green manufacturing facility for immediate processing.

I got to watch him hold court in the Hyatt at Wizard World 08 in Chicago this past weekend. I giggled as I watched him talk and thought about your post.
