While wasting time on the internet this evening, I happened upon a post from two years ago called “The 40 Worst Rob Liefeld Drawings.” I know what you’re thinking: “How can someone have possibly narrowed it down to forty?” Well, somehow they managed to do it over at progressiveboink.com. If you’re a Liefeld hater like every other comic book fan is, I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of it. And surprisingly, this image of Captain America isn’t included. I didn’t realize that a worse piece of comic book art had ever been drawn. Then again, I’ve managed to steer clear of Liefeld’s work for most of my 15 years reading comics.
I was directed to the “40 Worst” post through another blog called “Heroes N Hunks,” which had a post about Liefeld’s hating on the recent revelation in X-Factor that Rictor and Shatterstar are in fact gay. So if a complete lack of talent despite enormous success in an industry we all love isn’t enough to make you hate the guy, now there’s another: Rob Liefeld is a raging homophobe!
