Deadpool, We've Got Bad Blood

And you know we used to be mad love.

Well okay, nothing will change my love for Deadpool. But comicbook.com just announced that artist Rob Liefeld will be returning to Marvel, working on the character he helped create. Which is kind of cool but also cringe-worthy because Liefeld is notorious for being a kind of terrible artist. Which isn't a reputation you want your lead artist to have.

Case in point: Deadpool's thunder thighs.

Granted, a lot has changed since the 90s.

The art style (and proportions) have shifted over the years. People have things like feet, for example. But... this feels like a reputation that's gonna follow Liefeld around until he dies. Am I wrong?

Wow....yeah those aren't very appealing to the eyes 馃槗 Hopefully he's grown as an artist. Yikes.
Yea so this announcement sounds like return of the thighs snd tris for me lmao!
Whether his reputation precedes him or not is irrelevant. All that truly matters is whether his art style has changed or not. Although in my experience, it's rare for artists to do a total 180; so we'll probably get something akin to your pictures.
@ScriptedSoldier that's very true. Some of his style was definitely the time- people complain about all the dark tension lines he used and it's a fair point, but everyone else was doing the same thing in the 90s. His proportions are totally bizarre though
