How's Rob Liefeld's writing?

Everybody always makes comments about his art but what about his writing? Is it mediocre, horrible, or great?

- I would go with horrible, the stuff I read that I know he wrote or co-wrote was pretty bad

Before someone says his writing on X-Force was bad...............I want to point out he didn't write X-Force, the talented Fabian Nicieza did. He came up with ideas but didn't write them.

Sounds like what he'll be doing with Grifter and Savage Hawkman - they said he's 'plotting' those titles, not writing them.

Same goes for Deathstroke.

I hope he doesn't ruin The Savage Hawkman. It's been so-so thus far, and it doesn't need another nail in its coffin.

Liefeld is who they assign to a comic when they want it to die.

"I hit him in the jewels -- full force." Actual quote from liefields writing.

From Lobo to Thanos in a panel flat. If Lobo starts saying "I shall have my revenge!" I'm buying a sniper rifle and some camo gear
