He's quit comics!!!

From http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/10/24/rob-liefeld-announces-his-retirement-from-comics/

In a Facebook thread stared by Ethan Van Sciver, he stated

I would like to Rob Liefeld to draw Badrock Obama. But he won’t.

A mashup of Barack Obama and Rob Liefeld’s Badrock from Youngblood presumably. Liefeld replied;

Ethan, I am retired from comics but you have my blessing, it would look great if you drew it

Liefeld recently stormed out of DC in a barrage of tweets, but it was still expected that he would continue to work in comics, whether on Infinite with Robert Kirkman, the Extreme line for Image, or on projects such as his Scriptural Zombie comic or even getting rounf to finishing Youngblood Bloodsport.

But it appears it is not to be. Rob Liefeld is 45.

Don't let the door hit you in the ass and or belt pouches on the way out leifeld.

Also Infinite kinda sucked, not sure what Kirkman was thinking on that one.

Okay.....I'm going to actually use my mod powers and declare that we will have a respectful moment of silence on this thread for those who will miss and lament Liefeld leaving comics.

 

 

....and that should do it.  Let the ridicule begin!  ;)

Retired?

More likely he didn't have a foot in the door elsewhere.

What a loss for footless waspwaist women everywhere

Don't much care for his art but I think his twitter is quite enjoyable.  He actually makes some decent points sometimes too.

Mumbly Joe - 




Ugh, yeah, new quote system is da suck... wanted only Joe Q's pic in quote

Right then, surely all the Rob Liefeld haters will point to his cap, but they let Joe Q's Cap slide? small head, mooby chest, small shield... I mean really guys?

Don't waste a vote up on me (or paw, he has too many as it is
:)

So, does this mean we retire the Wrong Forum Liefield jokes?

I'd vote you up twice, if I could.

One for suggesting a vote up on me is waste and two for raising the "Wrong Forum Liefeld" question.

 

I'm of the opinion that Wrong Forum Liefeld is always an appropriate joke.
