My Future Pink Slip

This is why I would never make it as a comic artist.

I love to draw, but even if I got paid to do it I still think I’d be terrible at perspective and anatomy. Part of my problem might actually be that this era (early to mid-90s Marvel and early Image, specifically) had a huge impact on my middle school mind. Maybe that’s why I’m borderline retarded, I don’t know. What I do know is that I drew a lot of shitty superhero comics in 7th and 8th grade, some of which I’d love to scan and upload for everyone’s amusement.

Now, I’ll agree that Rob Liefeld is pretty awful behind the pencil; abysmal, even. That’s not exactly a “bold” statement, is it? But this article, besides having a few funny pictures on it, is the perfect example of my least favorite style of Internet Writing. I like to call it Maddox Disease (and trust me, I fancy myself an expert on how unfunny Maddox is), and the very first sign of it is attention to detail in the most obnoxious of ways.

I don’t want to get into it too much, though, because then I will become it!

One thought on “My Future Pink Slip

  1. You know the Maddox style is fine if you’re writing it stream of conscious on a messageboard. It kills me though that some dudes probably went through several drafts to achieve it for their “haha Rob Liefeld sucks” webpage that they made ten years too late.
