One of the worse covers.11171

This is one of the worse covers I have ever seen on a "professional" comic book, besides ones from Rob Liefeld... looks like a high school kid drew it and used colored pencils. Sad thing is, it will probably sell out...

Have you seen Scottie young’s covers? Horrible.

I love lots of Liefeld's work and would hardly consider it in the same league as the Ghost Spider Book.

Regardless what you may think of him as a person, there is no denying he has penned many iconic covers, and some over exaggerated ones as well.


A couple of my all-time favs

I don't see anything wrong with this cover, it is very original. Artistic expression.

George W immediately came to mind...although I like his artwork.

I think with some coloring contrasts I could like it a lot better.

@poka that one is definitely easier on the eye.

@flanders I've seen some decent artwork from W. I'm hoping that piece was one of his early works.

Liefield's work is sloppy and lose.....consider the x men cover above. Notice how Wolverines pants are drawn...ugh. Or the Jacket, with its immensely lopsided collar...one side massive the other properly sized....and who on earth holds a cigar like that? Notice the hand held just above wolverines shoulder to the right in the cover...Thumb then how many digits?
Seen a few covers Liefield did well, but generally when you take the time to really look them over, they are mostly drawn off proportion, missing or added digits or limbs, no feet, etc.

It's better than average for Liefeld but whoever did the colors deserves a signature spot on the cover.
I think the Inkers are often under-appreciated. I heard first-hand from an Inker that Marvel was paying them $70 per book in the '80s. I hope that rate has gone up.

Liefeld is hit and miss....mostly miss and when he does hit it's a triple at best, never a homerun.

The hips are drawn smaller than the shoulders width. Torso is males anatomy. Legs are small, and chest is flat like a males chest. Then there is the feet size. It pretty much looks like a Deadpool's body with a womans head.

What made Hitgirl interesting in the Kick Ass movie was that she was a nine year old girl (played by a twelve year old actress) that would swear like a sailer while evicerating her opponents with bladed weapons and guns.

While the character had aged a few years before this comic came out the reason she doesn't have a huge chest is that she is a teenager.

@GanaSoth - When Hit-Girl first appeared in the comics, she was 10-years old in the storyline. In the 2010 movie Kickass, she was played by a just-turned 12-year old Chloe Moretz. So she’s not supposed to have a women’s figure, as she’s just starting puberty.

@esaravo @drchaos thanks for the clarification. Like I said, I didn't know anything about the character, hence the "transgender" remark. Makes sense now.

Jack Kirby - disturbing drawing isn't it? What's going on with the head and the left arm?

@GAC Best line - "In conclusion, I hate Rob Liefeld and he should be thrown in a well." That was funny stuff there. I completely agree, Liefield was the worst, popular artist ever.
