    Ah, memories. I remember sitting in Glenn's old apartment going through assorted comic books looking for Liefeld swipes for a But I Digress… column. Good times, good times…

    This is beyond ridiculous. He's swiping more than a pose or panel, he's swiping an entire Marvel Crossover. He has to be called out on this one. In a time where people are calling for new ideas and not the same stuff recycled, he's straight stealing. This is worse than when he took that entire sequence from The New Titans.

    Guys, he's not the first to do this. Comics artists have been swiping shit from each other since 1939, if not before. Remember Victor Fox? I mean, what's the original Wonder Man but a reworked Superman? Captain Marvel, same thing, slightly tweaked. But I will admit, Liefeld's a bit more brazen about it. Like Brian DePalma brazen. In fact, Rob reminds me of the old story I heard from Ellison about the Hollywood producer who kept a huge stack of pulp magazines in his office and who'd go through them until he found a story idea. Never mind that it was all copyrighted… just file off the serial numbers and fling the movie out there, praying that nobody noticed that he'd stolen it whole cloth from somebody else… Still, I can't afford comics these days, and when I could, I despised Liefeld. And after the Spider-Man reboot, I feel the same way about Marvel. Not the guys who work there, just the company in general and Quesada in particular.Miles

    As a image by itself, I like actually that picture. Wouldn't mind seeing a Hulk issue all black and white apart from the green Sin City stylee.
