Re: Rob Liefeld...

I think his work is best for "cover artwork." Kinda like how I think that Alex Ross's work is best as cover artwork.

In any event, I don't get why the guy has so much venom spewed at him. Granted, he does have a unique style and, if not reigned in, he can go overboard at time (re: Cap boobs). However, compared to other artists at the time, I thought his work stood out. Much of the artwork that went around all seemed to have a very bland, sameness look between artists.

Now, you can debate whether you liked his style, but at least it was something conformist, imo.
