Still more Rob Liefeld madness

So I recently pulled Youngblood: Bloodsport #1 by Rob Liefeld out of a dollar bin just out of curiosity. It's written by Mark Millar and it's just him being as offensive and obnoxious with the writing as possible. Not in anyway that comes across as clever or funny, more like what a 12 year old would think is being edgy. I usually like Mark Millar but this kinda shows he works better when an editor or higher up is keeping him on a leash. Anyways this issue had some little gems of insanity by our pal Liefeld. Let's take a look.
Here we have a character doing cocaine. Despite the fact that he is in the middle of doing a line the straw is not up his nose. Also looks like his girlfriend has a serious humpback.
Out of context what does this panel look like? I don't know about you, but it looks to me like Shaft here is buttfucking the reanimated corpse of Martin Luther King Jr. And yes that is indeed the reanimated corpse of MLK that part I'm not making up.
OK, two things, first of all Pigtails McBoobs there has a neck that way too close to her left shoulder. She should probably see a doctor about that. And this guy's chair has invisible armrests, you don't often see that in a chair.
Seriously how in the hell has Rob not been sued? That is the Thing. He took the Thing, added gloves and make it a Youngblood character. How does Rob pull this sort of bullshit over and over again and still have a career. He can't keep a schedule, his artwork looks like a 12 year old's, he is a pain in the ass to work with and yet he still keeps coming back to Marvel and DC. Top creators still want to work with him. Even when he burns bridges it still never bites him in the ass. The man sold his soul to Satan. There's really no other explanation for his continued gainful employment within the world of comics at this point.

    1. You're right it looks like his head isn't connected. Like that video game character Rayman.

  3. Well, at least Mark Millar wrote Rob Liefeld a script as deep and dignified as his artwork merited.

    1. All joking aside I have noticed even the best of writers when paired with Rob tend to write garbage. I think Rob may indeed be so talentless he actually drains talent away from those working with him.

  4. I've never bought a Liefeld comic, because I saw the terrible/comedic Captain America he did, and that stupid Levi's commercial he did around 1991.

    THOSE two things turned me off of him, and ESPECIALLY that horrible Cap'n A picture is the reason why I only have ONE picture by him in MY blog! ;)

    Good post! :)
