In a post on his official website, comic book industry lightning rod Rob Liefeld has announced a new contest which can result in him drawing your 5-6 page short story. The only catch is that it's got to be one of Liefeld's characters -- but the winning story will be published in an upcoming issue of Bloodstrike or Youngblood.

The rules are pretty simple. According to Liefeld:

Step 1 – Write a short story featuring one of my EXTREME CHARACTERS. the story MUST BE EXTREME CHARACTERS ONLY. You are submitting a brief few paragraph’s pitching your idea for a short 5-6 page story.

Step 2 – HIT THE BUTTON. Here on this web site, to the right is a button that says CONTACT ME! This will send your story to my attention.

Step 3 – Wait to be contacted. I will choose 3 winners, 1 every few weeks starting March 6th, 2013. If your pitch is chosen you will be given a work for hire agreement to sign in order to participate.

Step 4 – Submission agreement. Click link below.

EXTREME TALENT CONTEST SUBMISSION FORM

I have the absolute highest regard for creators and for the ownership of original properties, and this agreement should in no way be misconstrued as license for us to appropriate your creations. This agreement protects Rob Liefeld from any liabilities involving coincidental similarities to works-­‐in-­‐progress or other submissions. Any submissions received without a signed agreement will be discarded without review.

5. GOOD LUCK!

This is basically Rob standing on the side of a highway holding a sign that says "Will do crappy art for your comic for food"

I really sort of hate this guy. Can't be mad at him though. The blame has to fall on the shoulders of 1) those that hired him and 2) those that paid him (consumers who paid money for his stuff). Come to think about it - if pop music and cinema are any indicators, Liefeld should be "drawing" 10 books per month [Yeah I have seen that page of "pencils" that it looks like a child drew.. literally, no kidding. A ten year old. Then the inker "cleans it up" read: does the actual drawing]. I guess I blame the public but I still kind of despise Liefeld.

A friend of mine suggested that someone submit a troll story.

A story that's so subtle in insulting him that he doesn't notice it, and draws it all and publishes it.

you're referring to the book he was doing with Kirkman that Kirkman basically fired him after he saw what he was doing?

Well, you may not like his art, his writing or him as a person. But for an aspiring comic book writer it's a pretty good opportunity to get his/her name out there, plus it'll look good on the resume. If that's something you'd want to do, i wouldn't dismiss this so quickly.

He survived this long with no talent. He should have invested his money in something else.

*paragraphs, Rob. No apostrophe needed. Jeez, both Liefeld and Lobdell both hate proper spelling and punctuaton, for claiming to be writers.

EXTREME characters only. Liefeld is so EXTREME.

#20 Posted by JonSmith (3990 posts) - - Show Bio

Now see, if ANY other comic book artist did this, people would jump at the opportunity. But because it's Liefeld, he's going to get so much hate and troll stuff that it'll discourage anyone other comic artists from doing something similar.

#21 Posted by Brazen_Intellect (1144 posts) - - Show Bio

Rob needs to go find a beach to retire to, just because he sold his soul to the devil to convince the world he was an artistic genius (at least in the 90's), and make a ton of money, he should realize by now almost nobody respects his work and just deal with it. His artwork is like Joe Kirby on acid, his characters are blatant ripoffs of Marvel and DC staples, he should thank whomever he prays to for what he has received from so meager talent and call it a day.

HEY KIDS! You know what time it is? It's Rob Liefeld's Homo Erotic Fan Fiction Time! Hope you children been chugging cough syrup and rot gut gin! This hot, wet, magical tail stars Byrd and Kodiak the Fur Burger! Yummy Fur Burger! 

 Byrd

 Kodiak the Fur Burger
  
Kodiak the Fur Burger was sad and lonely watching Storage Wars as sad and lonely Fur Burgers do. There was a knock at the door. Kodiak the Fur Burger thought to himself "Hhhmmm who could this be? I don't have custody of the kids in till next week..." To Kodiak the Fur Burger's surprise he finds a hot and sweaty Byrd holding a six pack of Mike's Hard Lemonade. "Byrd what are you doing at my section 8 housing?" Asked Kodiak the Fur Burger. " well I was on my way back from the topless David Duke Rally, and worked up a great thirst for some HARD lemonade if you know what I mean Mr. Fur Burger." Implied Byrd. "Oh I think I do. Oh I think I do Byrd" Whispered Kodiak the Fur Burger. With his furry palm he grabs Byrd's hand and took him into his home. Where they $#@% and they &@#! and they #%&@. Sweet Dreams Little Boys and Girls. Sweet Dreams.....

So I read his little form and it's basically giving him permission to steal your ideas.

F*** you Rob, you will never aloud to write BLOODGUTS now.

#30 Edited by Decoy Elite (30041 posts) - - Show Bio

Seriously don't even submit jokes, you won't get a dime and he'll probably rip off your idea while not giving any credit anyway.

It's shameful how he's trying to abuse some poor souls trying to get into the comic biz.

What a shameless horrible hack.

I don't care about artwork. What put me off in comics is bad storylines his early 90s Cable comics had good storylines.

Anything with Liefelds name on it might actually COST you a job. The other side is he might "borrow" your idea and use it, maybe that's why it has to include hid character.

Send it, but make it more graphic. Like add impossible sex positions that only Liefeld characters could achieve through their f__ked up anatomy.

Is Fourplay at all related to Rob's other creation, Forearm?

Forearm! He's got FOUR ARMS!!!

You trolls realize that I've received thousands of entries and that this is a fantastic opportunity. You trolls realize that I have unpublished Extreme scripts from Alan Moore, Robert Kirkman and Mark Millar that I could draw instead. Oh, but then your pathetic hate fueled hot air balloon would POP if reality was applied to your fantasies! : )
