... and Rob has taken what started as a private quibble and made it a very public venom-spore with Scott Snyder.

Keepin' it classy as ever.

The guy just really doesn't know when to stop does he?

and in an effort to have total disclosure...
I do not follow Rob or his work. I never did. I didn't care for him on Xforce. I didn't buy any of his Image or post Image work. I do not follow him on twitter. I truly don't care about the guy or what he produces. However, my LCS has a very active and robust Facebook group and through all the chatter that goes on there, I am kept very abreast of all the ins and outs of comic creator-dom. So, as long as it is chatter there, I will try to share it here.

I personally disagree with all the bashing his artwork gets. I love it because it is different than everyone else. It was his creation, Cable, that drew me into the X-Men books. Think about it this way, he has to have fans for Toy Biz to make a subline of XForce toys in their XMen line in the 90's.

Cable, Shatterstar, Deadpool, Stryfe, Domino. RL created some great characters.

As for his leaving DC? I've read several interviews/reports of his interviews. It seems to me that many of his reasons are the same ones George Perez gave for leaving as well.

I'm with you on Domino.

The rest? Meh.

You are right that Rob has the ability to create characters out of seemingly nothing. But he has become very formulaic in the way that he is doing it. What worked then, won't automatically work now and he doesn't seem to care.

The problem I have with Rob's art is that his anatomy is beyond broken.

And I have no problem with him leaving DC. I have no problem with the reasons he is giving for leaving either. The problem I have is in the way that he is mouthing off and presenting himself. If he had even a modicum of composure or professionalism I could let this slide.

It's awful that when you Google for "Rob Liefeld art", the results are mostly links to sites mocking his art.

When you Google just his name, it's all links to negative news.

I feel sorry for his family.
