Title: Rob Liefeld Quits DC: ‘The 0′s are my last issues’
Post by: Gay Titan on August 23, 2012, 10:06:27 AM
Rob Liefeld has talked about quitting DC before, but it looks like this time it’s for real — and with a firm end date.

On Twitter, the writer/artist stressed that it was his choice, saying he “Officially got off the DC52 treadmill this morning,” and “I believe in what DC is doing, but had to preserve my sanity.” He continued, acknowledging, “This is the 4th time I quit in the last 4 months. This time it will stick.”

Liefeld is currently writing and drawing Deathstroke, and plotting and co-scripting Grifter and The Savage Hawkman. In a Tweet, Liefeld said that September’s “0′s are my last issues,” which would be contrary to what’s been solicited for October and November, with each month listing Liefeld in his current roles on the three books. He disclosed that Scott Clark, who has been illustrating Grifter, will be replacing him on Deathstroke, and that long-time Liefeld associate Marat Mycheals will “continue the work on Grifter.” In further tweets, Liefeld addressed his reasons for leaving, including, “Massive indecision, last minute and I mean LAST minute changes that alter everything. Editor pissing contests,” and, “Last week my editor said ‘ early on we had a lot of indie talent that weren’t used to re-writes and changes..made it hard’. Uh, no, it’s you.”

Liefeld has been involved with The New 52 since its inception, first as the artist (and later writer) of Hawk and Dove, which ended after eight issues. In January, one day after the news of Hawk and Dove‘s cancellation, he was announced as coming on board Deathstroke, Grifter and Hawkman.

And then the ass goes on twitter and starts calling everyone out. Saying his editor kept making last minute changes and the artist he was working with was the reason sales stayed low. Yeah, he of all people started calling out his artist ... in a public forum.
And this is not the first time he has thrown people under the bus.

Screw him.

He is a puck ass, no talent hack that should never be hired by anyone again. You heard me me. PISS OFF LIEFELD

Didn't he used to have a forum here? Did he create bad blood here?

Yes. Alex had set aside a forum for him here. It worked about as well as I thought it would. Liefeld brought all of his fans over, and they talked while the rest of the Realm peeked in from time to time but basically avoided the forum altogether. It was really like having two separate boards.

And there was no bad blood on my end until he, once again, recently started throwing people under the bus for no damn reason.

When Perez left Superman he blasted DC like Rob just did and I have no problem with that. I mean, creators bashing "the man" is pretty fun, in an anarchist kinda way, but when creators start slamming fellow artists or writers publicly ... for no reason other than to slide fault away from them ... I think that is as cowardly as you can get. And when Rob Liefeld, an artist (and I use that term loosly) that knows something about being slammed by ... everyone, starts slamming another artist, I find that incredibly shallow and moronic.

I asked him why he was talking so bad about a fellow artist. Actually, in all honesty, it was a little more snarky than that as I believe I said "Really? You are going to talk bad about another artist? Really?

His reply - "Piss Off"

I guess he showed me.

Anyway, we are talking about an artist that has never even tried to improve his 'art'. He is still just as lazy as he once was, and I find it incredulous that he would have the gall to speak ill of any other artist, regardless of how good or poor they are at their craft.

But no, there is no bad blood between him and the Realm. Maybe me ... a little. (of course, I guess I should have his editor ... Just realized I called him a 'puck-ass' instead of the more excepted - 'punk-ass') ;D

Liefeld's Deathstroke Origin close to Perez's version? Maybe a tad?

Good call. Disgust is the appropriate word for me as well.

Wow. Anyone know if maybe DC told him do that?

It could be an homage to the original creators - did he even mention them in the book?

To me, that wouldn't matter. Not for this size and scale. The article didn't show the entirety of the pages either.

Hell I enjoy homages. I love seeing different takes on great covers like the Superman holding the dead Supergirl, or the Giant Size X-Men cover, or countless others, but to me, that is where the homage ends ... taking a well known image and reproducing it in various styles or with different content. This, this "copying page after page" is total and utter crap.

Whether DC told him to do it, or told him it was okay, or he did it on his own, Perez should be getting at least half of his page rate. Period. Not only for copying page after page, but copying it in that horrible, lack of talent style of his.

This guy is out of ideas...

And yet he criticizes other creators?  Unbelievable.

My interactions with Liefeld on this forum were all entirely negative. My first time talking to him, I introduced myself as a Marine who enjoyed his books while out in Iraq, along with the other guys in my platoon and I asked him a question about his use of art in one of his issues.

Some dude, Flowers something, started calling me a "baby killer" and a mindless tool of the government for fighting in an unjust war. To which Liefeld said... and I quote, "LOL! That's telling him man. That's the funniest thing I've seen you do to someone!!!"



...not to be crass, but the guy can go fuck off and die. He doesn't deserve one iota of respect from anyone. I look forward to him leaving the industry once and for all.
