Fake comic book art by Rob Liefeld
Fake comic book art by Jim Lee
Here's a classic article about one of the princes of shitty comic book art, Rob Liefeld (see link below). At his 'height' he helped perpetuate the myth that bad drawing was a 'style' and not just fucking ignorance at work. You know what that is? That's me telling a fine girl that my shitbox car is all the rage, not a piece of junk that can barely get down the street without the engine dropping out of it. Marvel made these ass-clowns 'famous' and I've personally met real comic book artists put out of work because of them. A goddamn shame and it'll never ever be forgotten. Then that pure filth so-called 'style' infiltrated DC comics and their books started looking like they were drawn by teenagers smoking crack cocaine.
Rob Liefeld was a slacker and let me add that other artistic slacker, Jim Lee's name to the criticism. Lee spent years drawing the human figure as if someone had covered his eyes with a fucking blindfold. The only difference if there even was one was that at his worse he was better than the other fuckers. Today he's some sort of big shot at DC comics -a 'co-publisher' (whatever that means). Big deal. As long as he doesn't draw that many comic books the comic book world will be better off.
I'm George Alan Booker and I created the character known as Zombie Racer and then everyone and his mother started turning it into shitty video games and smelly gym shoes on the Internet so now it's just all over the damn place. Anyway I used to work in comic books, animation, and TV advertising storyboarding. Now I'm returning to comics again with the start of this website. Check the site ledger on the Home Page (Graphic Storytelling.com and Gallery subheadings listings) for samples of my artwork. Follow me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/zombieracer for satirical jokes and political commentary (it's where I chill at).
