In my youth I was big into comics. Around that time Image was formed, and Rob Liefeld was the name in comics. I wasn't a huge fan of his stuff, but I did read it. I also just read this NYT article about Deadpool, which Liefeld created:
Mr. Liefeld added: ‘I wrote the stories. Like Jim Lee and others, I worked with a scripter who helped facilitate. I chose Fabian, and he got the benefit of the Rob Liefeld lottery ticket. Those are good coattails to ride.’ Neither Mr. Nicieza nor his manager could be reached for comment.
Oh, and my favorite image comic was Savage Dragon, which is still going on!
The image with this post is the cover of the first Savage Dragon which I am sure I bought at the Dragon's Den on Central Avenue.
