Let's Hope This Isn't Legit - Liefeld May Be Taking over His Book

Source

Coming through the industry gossip mills comes the news that Rob Liefeld, current solo writer/artist of Hawk And Dove, and artist of The Infinite, will also be writing the new 52 series Deathstroke.

It’s a good source, but not one I’ve used before, so do bear that in mind.

Deathstroke is currently written by Kyle Higgins and drawn by Joe Bennett and Art Thibert, up to at least issue 7. Issue 8 solicitations are due any day now though.

But Rob Liefeld has changed his Twitter logo to that of his verison of Deathstroke. In a previous life, Rob Liefeld co-created Deadpool, a particular parody of Deathstroke – as well as the name, there’s also the Slade Wilson/Wade Wilson similiarity.

Seriously people, stop changing your Twitter logo, it’s a dead giveaway.

You're joking, right? Please tell me you're just being cruel and this is a horrible, horrible joke. Please?

This wouldn't affect me very much as the revamped Deathstroke hasn't thrilled me.

It would be amusing as a one off, but obviously he'll try to put in as many DP references...

If you listen carefully you can hear Morph crying.

Well, good thing I dropped that book already...I'm just waiting for the Deathstroke covers to appear in "Heavier Metal: 25 Years of DC by The Biz" or something.

... Well, maybe this will work out for the best.

In that writing Deathstroke is arguably what Rob Liefeld got into comics to do in the first place, so maybe now he'll crash and burn and just stop.

Take away the carefully and you have a true statement.

- How does he still get work outside his own titles?

- He was a flash in the pan hit due to his style (not substance) and his Image work was overall a maximum joke

I dropped this a while ago but I'm still worried for Deathstroke, this early on in his New52 career and he may never recover from the scars Liefeld will inflict upon him

Did DC knows Deathstroke is not Deadpool?

I don't think Liefeld is that bad...

Thanks to info from the freaking awesome Morpheus, it seems that Liefeld's actually going to be using him for an issue of Hawk and Dove. So technically he'll be writing the character (for that one issue), but will NOT be writing this book.

@spiderbat87: You and will get along.

And the world breaths a sigh of relief

It will be the only issue of Hawk and Dove that I will ever purchase.

Book will probably get cancelled anyway.
