Rob Liefeld Auto De Fe


I found two issues of Supreme #1 in my comic book collection. Owning one is bad enough, but two??? The strange thing is I remember thinking that was a horrible comic at the time, so why did I buy it? And why two copies??? Anyway, I'm burning all evidence of ever owning this Rob Liefeld comic and I'm uploading it on the Internets where I'm sure it will stay a secret.
Edit: btw, if Rob wants to burn my comics I'll send them to him free of charge.

Cool music! Disco inferno!

Whatever happened to Rob Liefeld? Didn't he make his own company like ten years ago?

Supreme? The Alan Moore series? I thought they were pretty funny, though the art was inadequate.

Alan Moore took over the writing around #40 and made it cool, in a '50s Superman kind of way. What came before was pure crap.

Todd McFarlane called him "Rob, Lie, Fled"... IMHO, a lot of comic artists were jealous of him; He was the #1 hack and every fanboy's wet dream. He scribbled on his own then presented his portfolio and got his own comic book. 99.9999---% of other fans all got the "Yer anatomy's Crap!" speech. (Anyone ever read the LOBO comic Con parody?) But he got the job, despite all sorts of perspective/anatomy/composition problems. And, despite troubles with workers, companies, etc. he kept going on and on and on...

I remember when he got pissed that he only had a 4 issue contract for Captain America so he wanted to start his own creator owned title that was 99% captain America, but Marvel's lawyer's stopped him...

I'm not really jealous, during the 'boom' he exploited, a lot of more 'underground' stuff went mainstream, which is my fav area.

Ah, if we fans wrote the comics...Oh, wait... O_O

But, seriously, even with the independent studios, mediocre to brilliant titles weren't always easy to come by. Although titles like 'The Watchmen' and 'Batman: Long Halloween' tend to make the various 'best comics' lists, I tended to like Angel Love, What's New, Buck Godot and The Adventures of Captain Jack more. There's just something about underdogs that tends to make them more 'cuddly' than the mainstream dobermans.

Here's hoping the industries can find their forgotten supplies of 'pixie dust'. (Not that *you* need it, of course) ^_^
