    I was going to reply to this image but there is just so much wrong with it I don't know where to begin (the wings on his head are even crooked but man is that ever a square jaw). I just wonder who he has stuck in that costume with him.

    I think the consensus is that that is not a very good picture, so maybe we should leave it at that

    And that's all i have to say about that.
    There are alot of geniuses(?) in comics. Though the way the industustry is set it's hard to figure out who is and isn't. Liefeld and six other (Jim Lee, Valentino, Selvesrti, McFarlane, Larsen, and Pichacio (?) left Marvel to form Image. The bases was for more creater control, money and so forth. They saw their pay cheques and saw how much there books were selling and saw how much money Marvel was making so they decided to form there own company where they have the bigger piece of the pie and control over the charaters. Image was a good idea at the time, but with no one to answer to, they were late with there own books and started to venture off into doing other stuff like toys. But in the end of it they became what they hated the most. They became another Marvel. Image did some good things for comics like shifting the spotlight to smaller and indipendent companies. They also did some bad, foucusing so much on drawing instead of story telling and stories itself they started to lose some of there fan base, and when the bottom fell out Image suffered just like everyone else did in comics.
    I still have no idea what Wild Cats is about.

    I HATE W.I.L.D.Cats! Tried to read seeveral issues; couldn't understand anything, it was like reading a bad comic in a foreign language.

    Please remember, Liefeld admits that the guys who formed Image were not very good artists. Rob also had no formal art training. Yet he still got hired by Marvel to draw comics for them!

    Wild C.a.t.s was never my favourite Image comic. I did enjoy Stormwatch though. From Stormwatch we got Ellis's take on the team and then 'The Authority'. From that we can see how 'Planetary' came about and so on. Some good stuff came from Image, but in some departments it never measured up to the big two.

    Same here. I picked up a #1 issue way back when to see what it was like, and hated everything about it. The story was awful, the dialogue was lame, the characters all seemed to be ripoffs of Marvel or DC characters, the art was ugly... I think the inking, and colouring was okay, but beyond that I couldn't see any appeal whatsoever.

    You are a stupid seal with a small rooster. Translate that into french and you'll get it.

    The reason why no one who gets hired as a comic book artist never really had any formal training is if you go into college or university at the time (90's) and say you want to become a comic book artist they'ed turn you around and kick you out the door. I know, because that's what I told OCAD and other art schools at the time. They all had this view from the 30's or 40's mentality, that you only did comic book work if you had no other choice or were looking for some serious work, and if you did do comic work, you'd change your name so that your legitamate work would not get effected.

    So alot of comic artist were people that knew how to do story telling and draw good. That's why I'm still dumbfounded by Liefeld. Take a look at Youngblood #1 and look how the costume changes for the charater named Sentinal(?) (They guy with the yellow shoulder pad(s) and helmet). But also to get into comics you have to bug the crap out of the editor till you get some work, like McFarelane did.

    Alpha Rider, are you secretly Rob Liefeld in disguise?

    I have got to say, even though I "accidentally on purpose" hijacked this thread a wee bit, this has been a fun conversation! In a year or two, we'll have to revisit this, do a whole thread on Liefeld and Image!

    Awh man my cover is blown. But I did work in the comic book industry with some big name artist and companies, and was schooled in what was going on in the industry. However that was in the past and I have no plans on ever going back. Too many pre-madaonnas. Everyone is *****y about the other guy can't draw or write, but jealous because they don't have the big name project like the other guy. What a bunch of whinning babies.

    And now you have piqued my curousity. But I will refrain from asking you anything you do not wish to volunteer. Hopefully you have found happiness and contentment in other employment since?
