Group Info

About The Group:

This group is for all people who love and adore the great and powerful artist known as Rob Liefeld.

You can post fan art. Talk about rob liefeld. Draw your own tribute to his greatness. Take pictures of his hair you secretly clipped off of his head when he wasn't looking at Comicon. Or anything else Rob Liefeld related.

About The Rob Liefeld:

Seriously Is there another better artist? "No." is what you were thinking. None. His dramatic style echos through the hallowed halls of an unmatchable comic gods realm. A realm so powerful... feet are unnecessary. No need to draw them. No need for real perspective, "Robspective" is king. Gritty facial features astound and brush hair pleases the heart. If only all artist could be rob liefeld.

Origins of this group:

This group was lovingly started by superfan "Oh! Oozi". Me. I started it. To my amazement there were no Rob Liefeld focused groups. Seriously people? How could you let this huge artistic supernova slip past. It's like ignoring the earth crashing into mars while martian unicorns hijack our TV airwaves performing Madonna cover songs. Impossible. You should be ashamed.

Rob Liefeld rarely creates new IPs. Mostly I think it's because the world can't handle it. His art is so powerful it scorches the earth like forest fires, an uncontainable force devastating everything in its path. There are many 3rd world countries that still haven't recovered after seeing his art for the first time. I pray for them. But, every once in a while a new project comes out to light up your eyes up like nuclear fission. Once upon a time Rob Liefeld Created " Re:Gex ". And the world wept.

Re:Gex: The Story (according to the infallible Wikipedia):
"The world is ruled by a dictator named Lord Sharpe. Fighting against his rule are a band of mutants and cyborgs called Re:Gex. They are led by a man named Scarab. Scarab previously worked for Lord Sharpe but rebelled against his master when he encountered an angel during one of his missions."

Gold, I tell you!

In fact the book was so good it only needed 2 issues and 8 variant covers (No joke). Also, one of those issues was a "0" issue, so it was a series of 1. But, man, that one was incredible! Unfortunately, I have no idea where my old comic books are, so I'm going to have to go purely off of memory to describe this comic to you. It was like a snickers bar in your pocket on a warm day. You know there is all this deliciousness inside that wrapper but if you open it you'll be in for an afternoon of messy ecstasy.

The story includes a genius meshing of genres: Anime (transforming motorcycles), Fantasy medieval women warriors (she might be an angel) and  soft-core porn (a requisite shower scene, so hot). Conceptually it has everything you want to see in an action oriented comic book. I don't think I read it, but I can only assume that the story lives up to the precedent set by the universally admired Youngblood issue #1 plot.

The art:
It's Liefeld, need I say more? It's Rob-nomenal. It hits your eyes like the lights of a hospital ceiling on the day you were born. Colorful, fun and a left turn from the gold standard Rob created with Youngblood.

Final thoughts:
If for some odd reason you haven't picked up this hidden gem, like,  because you were in a coma for the last 15 years. Go to eBay and pick it up now! You can find it a market price of $.63 That is the best deal you will find in a life time.


Awesome rating scale (1-5):
Drumroll... I give it 5 backwards thumbs up!

Like most Rob liefeld super-fans I lack the ability to comprehend those superficial-squiggle-balloons... So I've never "read" it, per se. But I'll make an (un)educated guess. Yes, he is all powerful.

I looked it up. Turns out he's just enhanced to have extended longevity, which explains why he lives on to become Absolution and later Crypt.

Rob Liefeld group 😲. I was shocked by the add to tell you the truth. Seriously, you probably have to put up with a lot because he has a rabid army of fanboy haters, more than Miller or Slott. But I admire your honesty! I came to be a big fan Moore's version of Youngblood and you can tell my favorite character is Twilight(Linda Kendall). Never met Rob, but I am told by my bro he likes Whataburgers and is friends with Ethan Van Sciver whom you can add on Facebook.

Thanks for add! I initially liked the concept of Youngblood, but was disappointed that it didn't turn out what the series seemed to start out as, Xforce + GIJoe. I think some of that should be put in this reconceptualization of Youngblood that is coming out. But I wait and see what they put out 😄
