Like Alex Ross, Liefeld always uses models to get his lighting just right.

Bwah-hah-hah!

Hey! I noticed that too! (See the first comment.)

The resemblance is uncanny, ain't it? I figured I couldn't be the first guy to figure it out, but I was still strangely compelled to post about it.

Liefeld's mastery of human anatomy compels many things.

In fact, I read once that it ranks up there with "The Power of Christ" to compel demons to leave bodies they are possessing.

He has also apparently healed blindness too.

He once cured a ham.

Everytime I see that Liefeld Captain America image, I cry a little.

Wasn't there someone, anyone in the Marvel bullpen, a writer, an editor, anyone, who went up to Liefeld and just said "Dude, his moobs are frickin' huge!"?

Blockade Boy said...

Naladahc: That's why I'm thinking the U.S. government should just confiscate all Rob Liefeld artwork and put it away for safekeeping, next to the Ark of the Covenant.

Justin: Me too, although I'm usually laughing at the time.

Jon: Buddy, I still can't fathom how Liefeld ever gets hired in the first place!

I wonder if Cap ever thought to use his rack as a TV tray...

Blockade Boy said...

I can see it now... Cap's battling the hoards of Hydra, and thinks "Strength... failing! Need quick energy boost!" And then he peels the lid off the little yogurt container that had been perched atop his man-boobs the whole time.

I always thought it kind of looked like the entire front of his torso was opening up like a fridge door. Like the Falcon keeps his beers in there.

I remember getting really angry when I saw this image, not out of any love of Cap but because it was so damned bad-looking.
