I noticed something about a couple of Liefeld's "New 52" books

I was looking though some of the previews of this week's DC books, and something about two of the books coming out this week caught my eye.

Does anybody else see it?

The black outlines on Grifter, Deathstroke, and Lobo's faces are all EXACTLY THE SAME.

Now, the designs of Grifter and Deathstroke's masks (and overall costumes, really) didn't look like this before Liefeld jumped aboard these titles, so clearly the consistency in the eye designs are his doing.

I don't really know what the point of this post is. I guess I just wanted to point this out. I thought it was a little amusing... in the worst way possible.

Well, I'm not trying to defend any artist, but Liefeld is not the only one who draws faces the same. Many people in the industry are guilty of it.

Liefeld destroyed Lobo.

Those are called eye mustaches.

Good catch. Especially looks dumb on Deathstroke (his mask design has always been great - leave it alone!) and on Lobo it looks like he is joining the Bat Family, maybe borrowed one of the Robin's domino masks.
