To truly appreciate this rant, you need to have been reading comics in the late 80s, early 90s, when Rob Liefeld first hit it big as a comic book artist.

You know, if he'd just been a lousy artist, I wouldn't've minded so much. What drove me nuts about Liefeld is that he was insanely popular. He not only drew horribly, he inspired everyone in the industry to draw horribly too, so that they too could make pots of money for drawing characters that looked like crap.

So, yeah, I did have better things to do than read a rant about a sampling of Liefeld's worst drawings, but it felt so good to hear someone else say "Hey! Look! The emperor has no clothes!"
