In 2007, Bill Hanstock (progressiveboink.com) published The 40 Worst Rob Liefeld Drawings, a scathing review on the art of one of the 90’s most popular comic book artists. Rob Liefeld is credited for characters such as Youngblood, X-Force, and the recently resurrected Marvel character Deadpool (thanks Ryan Reynolds). As if 40 weren’t enough, Hanstock wrote the followup 40 More of the Worst Rob Liefeld Drawings in 2012.
If you love the work of Rob Liefeld, then I suggest you don’t read these. Personally, as an artist myself, these two articles are freaking brilliant and funny as Hell. I’ll honestly admit too that I hate drawing feet as much as Rob Liefeld does; the difference is that I’d draw them until I get them right, where Rob Liefeld would just not. I digress. These are fantastic reads and I know I have a bunch of friends who love these just as much. So, because I like pretty things and I like to read things on my iPad, I decided to reformat these two articles into nicely polished PDFs. I wasn’t sure how Bill would react to them, but I got official Twitter confirmation today by him by getting a “like” and a retweet. By the way, follow Bill on Twitter at @sundownmotel.
