Liefeld to Draw Deadpool Corps

Disappearing backgrounds and magic fog covering feet here we come!



Does anyone, other than the dog, have noses in this picture? It all just gets... scrunchy where the nose should be. But hey, he's gotten better at feet! The "he" I'm talking about is none other than living legend Rob Liefeld. Rob created the Deadpool character back in New Mutants #98. Rob has been "tweeting" a lot recently about this book, and now we know why... He's drawing it.
 

Rob Liefeld has been twittering with joy the various Deadpool-styled characters who will be populating the Deadpool Corps book, Headpool, Kidpool, Dogpool and Lady Deadpool. And now we know why. He’s drawing the book.

Yes, all of it.

And yes, so far, it seems to be on time.


 However, in my search to find these supposed tweets and become that "hard hitting" reporter I've always wanted to become, I only found this guy, and I don't think he knows what a Deadpool is. Then, I realized I was spelling his name wrong, and easily found Rob on Twitter. Then I noticed there are two fake Rob accounts that only talk about how he can't draw feet. I finally found his twitter account and here's a few pieces of what he had to say about the upcoming debockle known as Deadpool Corps. 
 

  I'm finishing up DCP #1 right now. I drew Prelude to Deadpool Corps.: Lady Deadpool #1 a couple months back and Deadpool MWM #7 in summer 
  http://twitpic.com/yojnd - So now that Deadpool Corps. is out of the bag. Here's a panel from issue #1 to whet your appetite. DCP in April! 
  In case your wondering, Deadpool is crying because Cable is so damn heavy and he can't hold him a moment longer. http://bit.ly/6LGVmc

After reading many of his tweets, I never want to see the word "Deadpool" in print, ever, again. The current on-going Deadpool book is pretty good, but that's about it. It started off with a bang, and for me, it got boring. He got another on-going and a mini-series, and now this. I feel like I'm having bad comedy shoved down my throat week after week. And before the fans jump down my throat... Deadpool is great in either small doses or with a strong lead character attached to him. On his own, it's too wacky, and that wackiness can only last a few issues before losing it's appeal. I'm at a point where I could care less about this book. I don't care who's drawing or who's writing. I'm sick of the character.  Sad thing is, no matter how much I complain, I'll still read it.
 
What do you guys think? Does Liefeld sway you on this book either way? Sick of Deadpool yet?

I'll go with "Sick of Deadpool"

Noses? Don't be silly, Ego...who needs noses? Or proportion...? Psh...don't--don't be silly.
 
I'm tired of Deadpool, though. Really, one book was enough. It's the only book I read other than his mini-series.

Nice to see after all these years,Leifeld still struggles with the same aspects of anatomy.

Deadpool's my favorite comic character, but they're stretching him so thin he's the new Wolverine (only Wolverine doesn't make one-liners, so he's easier to swallow). ONE ongoing series is enough, plus some crossovers. We don't need Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool Corps, Deadpool Teamup or anything like those.

it looks like he's gotten better since the Heroes Reborn days

I want to read this book though! The idea seems fun!

We'll see if April is the month to kill your love of Deadpool.  That's the  month where every other title has a Deadpool variant.  On top of that, he's also in Fall of the Hulks, HoH & Moon Knight.

NO MORE DEADPOOL!!!!!!

@xerox-kitty: Now I must say though, he is the perfect character to have spotlighted in April, seeing how he's such a fool. BUT TOO MUCH IS TOO MUCH! They are going to ruin him and we won't see him for ten years...

Actually, that doesn't bug me so much. I like several of those covers. Besides, if I didn't leave Marvel after all of those Marvel Zombies and Marvel Apes (!) variant covers to series, Deadpool isn't going to hurt. I've been a fan of his since the early 90s. I just think having multiple series to his name is too excessive.

I don't like Liefeld a little bit. I don't like Deadpool a little bit. I don't like Marvel a little bit. And by "a little bit", i mean "THEREISNOWAYIAMGONNABUYTHISSH!T"

Since the position of his shoulders and absence of hands suggest his arms are crossed behind his back....um....is ol' Wade holding Cable up with his "muscle"?...or, rather, impaling him with it? This is the guy that has a problemo with Shatterstar's sexual evolution, right? Me tinks he be slightly confused.

HEY MAN !! Drawing feet and hands are harder than you know ! ....ha ha ha ha

Im looking forward to Deadpool Corps, I mean Deadpool is the perfect character to imitate the GL Corps lol

Yup... just where are Deadpool's hands disappearing inside Cable?  No wonder he's sweating!  What's up with Cable's upper legs merging into one?  Why does he have the waist of a pre-teen?   
 
It's not just them.  Emma Frost (below DP's right leg) has the waist the size of a pencil.  No wonder her rib bones are so pronounced!  But that still doesn't explain her mighty thunder thighs.  Talking of Shatterstar (top right corner) he's still got his flowing ponytail & head-guard... someone's still in denial.  Also in the wrong outfit is Domino, who appears to be wearing the outfit she wore when Liefeld was last on X-Force... except that Domino never wore that (it was Copycat).  Yet this seems to be set in the modern day since you have Hope as a grown woman. 
 
There is just SO much wrong with this image.  That includes the way that Nick Fury seems to  be perfectly comfortable stood below DP's crotch ;)

That's too much. But the Daredevil one makes me laugh.

I'm a huge Deadpool fan, but 75% of the stuff that has come out in the past year was garbage. The shark is in the water ready to be jumped, and Liefeld is driving the boat.

Posted by Blue_Shield

I haven't read Deadpool since the 'Secret Invasion' arc, and all of this does absolutely nothing to want me to buy it.  All of this seems like way to much.

I love his humor but I avoid him just cause he hails from Wolverine Universe and Wolverine just pisses me off.

Korg to not read Deadpool Corps.

Posted by Bandito

I'm going to say the same thing about Liefeld's art that I said about my dad at his trial:  "THIS GUY SUCKS!  I WANT MY MONEY BACK!"

Posted by MJ Styles

OH NO!  The feet.  The feet.

Posted by Caligula

I love Rob Liefeld but I hate Marvel, and this is a blatant parody of DC's Green Lantern Corps, I hope Stan Lee, Disney, and all of Marvel's creators/owners/affiliates rot in hell. 
 
Rob Liefeld is the only redeeming quality about this comic, and regardless of what people say, Liefeld is a great artist, and I have the utmost repect for the guy.

That sounds like a Dr Seuss rhyme.

Don't feed Marvel, they are on some kindo of DC hate/slander parade recently, with the Variant Cover trade ins, and now this. I guess they are sitting in the corner crying, because Blackest Night is outselling all of their siege garbage.
Posted by EisforExtinction

Okay, this is worse than the Twilight manga.

Posted by SirSparkington

As much as I love Deadpool, enough is enough. I'm enjoying Deadpool (ongoing) and Merc With A Mouth, but four ongoing Deadpool books is too much for me. As far as Liefeld's art goes, I can't say I'm a huge fan. Lady Deadpool is probably a dream come true for him because he finally gets to draw Deadpool with giant boobs.  
 
Also, has anyone else noticed that Liefeld never EVER draws a string for that dude's bow in Youngblood? I noticed this in Image United. I also noticed that continuity isn't his strong suit ether.
Posted by Obsurity

I'm a fan of Deadpool but it's gotten out of hand. I bought Merc with a Mouth series for about 2 issues before stopping. I won't touch those Deadpool teamup series... Even his on going series seems to be running out of gas at least for me. I thought the Pirate and X-men arch was pretty bad

As many people I see here complaining that the artwork sucks. How many actually draw themselves? Definitely agree with Bruce Vain drawing hands/feets are quite difficult. I always had a hard time doing them
Posted by jacobyLIVE

I think the idea is cute,and by 'cute',I mean I can't take it seriously but it'll be fun to look at all the pretty pictures. Headpool? "Dogpool? That's way too campy. Deadpool is a one-character franchise. Marvel should keep him that way

Hey I love Blackest Night and haven't read Siege but frankly I'm a Deadpool fan well Blackest Night is almost over with.

Edited by aztek_the_lost

I give Marvel a lot of crap but even I have to say the company deserves a pat on the back for giving the unskilled, jobs, people like Land and Liefeld are the ones who give me and my stick figures hope of one day making it big as an artist in the comics biz

Posted by Man of Lengend

ok people i get the whole " there is way too much DP going around these days" i tend to agree, dp is my favorite comic character ,but .....really only a few months ago people were so excited about him getting the attention he aparently deserved??? and now since he is the new wolverine everyone is really upset. Dont get me wrong , way too juch at one time !!! with 3 monthly titles, the marvel covers, and the DP corps?? in time they will slow down, so just enjoy the fame while it lasts, because as much as i am a fan boy i know this wont last forever....

Hey people love dogs! Let's have a Deadpool dog! Brilliant brainstorming Marvel.

Posted by MrDirector786

I still see screwups in the feet. No one having a nose but the dog also looked weird. Well, at least they're better than a lot of his past drawings....
