Here it is folks, the original panel which spawned the never dying meme.  It’s kind of interesting, especially to see what Batman is saying and why he actually slaps the boy wonder.



Liefeld vs. Synder…Snyder wins!

I’ve never enjoyed anything Rob Liefeld has drawn or written.  He’s worse than Morrison!  At least Morrison has class and creative ideas. Liefeld just simply can’t create a good story, let alone draw very well.  But that’s all he’s ever been to me, a bad writer and artist.  But now he’s gone over the deep end, reverting to name calling and bad mouthing people simply because his ego allows for it.

A few days ago, Liefeld began bashing DC on his Twitter account for a few changes they made in staffing, as well as many others aspects.  Discussions started going wild and Liefield came out with this Tweet…

Liefeld is entitled to his own opinions, and I’m sure not everyone disagrees with Liefeld’s sentiments on DC’s values.  It’s completely true that DC has a tendency to think less of its creators than a company like Marvel or Image does, but I wonder about Liefeld’s methods in “calling people out.”

It wasn’t until Scott Snyder, lead writer on Batman, had enough and came on Twitter to tell Liefeld to calm down and shut up.  Let’s face it, Liefeld’s actions lead one to believe he has an inferiority complex…

Snyder did low ball Liefeld, no doubt, but with all the postings Liefeld tweeted prior to Snyder’s remark, it’s a wonder no one else stepped up to the plate.  Liefeld didn’t let up though…

The entire back and forth duel the two had became a simple shout fest, with Liefeld leading the onslaught of insults, and Snyder only throwing one in here and there, trying to remain calm.  Liefeld continued to bash Snyder for calling himself the Lead writer (which he is) on Batman.  The definition of a character LEAD writer is simply this…if your writing for the flagship book.  Liefeld thought it would help his rhetorical jargon by constantly bad mouthing Snyder’s writing abilities, claiming that the only reason his (snyder) Batman stories are selling is because of how popular Batman is.  Snyder, getting fed up with it, came out with this retort…

And this is true, Deathstroke and Hawkman saw all time lows when Liefeld came on board.  While I think Snyder should have bowed out 0f this shout fest a while ago, it’s was a merited comment.  Snyder quickly gave up and went about with his own thing, but Liefeld persisted with his egotistical rants…

Not too long after, the private conversations that Liefeld was having with Snyder were leaked out, much to the approval of Liefeld.  Apparently Snyder was trying to figure out something he was confused about concerning Liefeld’s statements.  It was clear that Liefield was having a field day with bashing and bad mouthing anyone who got in his way, even if the other side was simply trying to understand what the heck was going on…

Liefeld thought reverting to childish insults was an intelligent move on his part, when in fact it made him look even worse.  The conversation continued and clearly Liefeld was simply mad at everything DC was doing and couldn’t hack it when anyone else was simply trying to get him to quiet down and stop enjoying the smell of his own farts.

I’ll state again, I’ve never liked Liefeld’s work, it’s simply not good.  But now, with this recent line of retorts and bad mouthing on Liefeld’s part, I feel justified in supporting him very little in my comic book collector years.  Liefeld, you have successfully lost a big chunk of your supporters.  Congratulations and good luck finding work after Marvel fires you.  Scott Snyder, I will continue to enjoy your work…you’re one of the stronger Batman authors that’s come around in a VERY long time!

So how did you ever find work?

Now THIS is funny!

So forget about the fact that Batman is naked, and Robin’s giving Bats a good ol’ pat on the rear end, just give your best comic book pal a high five and enjoy the rest of your day.  Besides, Free Comic Book Day is just around the corner!!

DC Comic’s “trinity” has always been an interesting concept; Superman is the positive thinker who believes in the natural good within people, Batman is the negative force that is convinced everyone is evil by nature, and the two are always at odds.  Wonder Woman acts as that buffer between the two, holding equally to both ideals that Supes and Bats does.

Artist Dave Despau has created three “bust” renditions of the three said heroes, giving only a splash of color to represent a little of their own specific personalities.  Despau is somewhat unfamiliar to me, but I have seen a few pieces of art in his repertoire, and these three additions of his are my favorites.

Dr. Seuss And The DC Universe…

Posted: January 5, 2012 in Batman, DC Comics

Remember a while back when DC Comics came out with a few volumes of graphic novels titled “What if Stan Lee Created the DC Universe?”  It was a conglomeration of DC most popular superheroes, but with that Stan Lee twist.  Things looked similar, but very different at the same time…and interesting.

Well, Dr. Faustas from Deviant Art has concocted his own version of the popular DC heroes…Dr. Seuss style!  I’ve done it, and I’m sure you comic book artists out there have tried it as well, and famous artists have done it too, always asking the question, “what WOULD my favorite heroes be like if I had made them?”  Dr. Faustas tried to interpret the Batman universe in Dr. Seuss’s image. These images are pretty darn cool I might add.  Every single one of these were pulled from Dr. Fuastas’s Deviant Art page, and I take no ownership of them.  Please visit his Deviant Art page and view more of his awesome work!
