The older I get, the more genuine, un-ironic admiration I have for Rob Liefeld, but I've never been able to find a good resource for news and updates about the Rob. Today, though, that has changed, and now my phone -- and maybe even my life -- have finally found a purpose, because the Rob has launched an official app, containing information about his history in comics, his upcoming appearances, and more.
There's even an "Ask Rob" section that allows fans to pose questions directly to the man himself, which means we can finally find out if he still has those button-fly jeans.
With the possible exception of those Sailor Moon toys that I dropped two hundred bucks on, Transforrmers vs. G.I. Joe #1 was the most exciting purchase I made last weekend at San Diego's Comic-Con International. It was pretty much guaranteed to be that way, too -- the #0 issue that came out on Free Comic Book Day and set up the ongoing story that Tom Scioli and John Barber would be telling was easily one of my favorite comics of the year so far. It was bright and engaging and weird, in exactly the way that a comic based on taking two toy properties and smashing them together to make one big story should be.
As far as weirdness goes, though, this first issue outstrips it by a long shot, and it does it by taking the high concept that I think we all expected from another Transformers vs. G.I. Joe story and turning it upside down, launching it into an entirely new echelon of strangeness. And it is great.
If you've ever wanted to see the entirety of culture in the early 1990s captured in 35 seconds, then you could do a lot worse than to watch the famous Levi's Button Fly Jeans commercial starring Rob Liefeld, directed by Spike Lee. It's a testament to the overwhelming popularity of comics in general and Liefeld in particular during that era, but more than that, it's a snapshot of the time in pop culture.
Now, cartoonist Ed Piskor has recreated it in the form of a comic strip, depicting Rob Liefeld in the style of Rob Liefeld, and it is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.
Do you have "Extreme Talent"? Would you like to have your story illustrated by Rob Liefeld in an upcoming Image comic? If the answer to either of these questions is a resounding "yes," then Liefeld's contest calling on burgeoning creators to reinvent one of his Extreme characters for publication in an upcoming issue of Youngblood and Bloodstrike could be for you.A reportedly relatively
We've had movies about the behind the scenes drama involved in launching social media companies and building baseball teams, so why not one about the real-life tale of seven friends going it alone and launching their own comic book company? At least, that's what Image founder Rob Liefeld believes - and he's even gone so fa
He may have seemingly burned bridges at both Marvel and DC in recent years, but there's no reason to feel sorry for Rob Liefeld just yet. Not only are his creator-owned titles undergoing new critical appraisal thanks to last year's
Rob Liefeld fans have even more reason to be excited about the upcoming Deadpool video game than they may have initially thought, with the revelation that another of the creator's signature Marvel characters will be showing up to co-star in the game. Hint: He's a time-traveling cyborg with a glowing eye and bad attitude.
