    Rob Liefeld is a GI Joe plagerist?

    http://www.dreamers.com/adlo/estudios/comparativas.htm

    Sorry it's in spanish, but you can use http://babelfish.altavista.com/ to translate the text. You can clearly see how much Liefeld copies other artists.

    Thanks to the translator page I was able to read the complete that they are spewing about my favorite comic book artist of all time... Michael Golden...

    He did a lot of GI Joe stuff and was the most detailed artist I've ever seen.

    So that website says it isn't plagerism because Roadblock can not physically hold such a large weapon. Only the cybernetic arm of Cable could. So it's more likely Cable's drawing is the more accurate, the more credible drawing. Nevermind the fact that the "cybernetic arm" isn't holding the bulk of the weapon where the trigger is.

    Nevermind the fact that the drawing of Roadblock exsisted years before that drawing of Cable.

    I understand Liefeld wants to honor another artist... but?? I've never been a fan of Liefeld... now I abolutely dispise him.


    What do you think?

    Yeah, I've known about Liefeld's Roadblock rip off and others for years.

    It's pretty sad....

    What is worse though, is that he is still working in comics! I saw some new Liefeld "Shatterstar" comic a few weeks ago.

    Rob Liefeld has never had original idea in his life. EVERY character he has "created" has been a complete ripoff of someone else. Remember a book called "Dooms Four"?. It was about a superhero team with all of the powers of the FF just rearranged. There was even a character called Grimm. What about thet Darker Image character who was a Lobo ripoff? The list goes on and on..Why this guy never got his pants sued off for plagarism is beyond me. He totally sucks.

    Anyone who has anything to say against the most underappreciated artist EVER to work in comics, MIke Golden, I have a problem with.

    Did I mention Liefeld blows?
    Booya!

    I have never seen the appeal in Leifield.

    Every male character of bulk looks exactly like Cable.I call it the Captain Chapel Cable look.
    Every male character not of bulk looks exactly like Shatterstar.

    Every female character looks like Domino.

    And then there's the required height problems.Average non super empowered characters come about crotch high on Captian Chapel Cable.Which if the average person is at least 5' 7",that would make Captian Chapel Cable near 12' tall.

    Seeing his Roadblock rip off,just gives me one more reason to hate Leifield.

    Oh and lets not forget Leifield destroying every single good thing Joe Casey had done on Cable in one issue.

    I've hated Rob Liefeld since he totally screwed up the New Mutants. I agree that the guy does nothing but steal other people's ideas. That's one reason I hated Image when it first started - the vast majority of the titles were nothing but rip-offs of other comics by DC or Marvel. Ugh!!!

    This is such a weird thread for me personally to read, because i found out something interesting about rob leifeild few years back. I went to savannah college of art and design when i started college, and they a seminar weekend before school started. I took a sequential art comic book 1 hour class by walt simonson, who worked on thor a long time, and other stuff. Well, walt told us a few comic book stories and such, and 1 was how his wife and leifield has co created cable, and leifeild took all the credit. Mr. simonson came across as a nice and down to earth guy, and this kinda seems like something sneeky leifield would do, so who knows what side is accurate, that is just what i had heard and never forgotten from walt.

    I think I know what you're saying. Didn't his wife WRITE the first few issues that intriduced Cable? She should get 1/2 credit...

    i'm not sure Simonson's wife would want any credit for a turd of a character like cable. she probablly wants to distance herself as far away from liefield and cable's stench as she can. hahah, sorry, i just hate most of the image artists anyway. hide the hands and feet... OOOOH mysterious MIST is what we need on every panel!!!! YES THIS COMIC RULES!!!!
