Rob Liefeld is the Benjamin Button

Post by nycjadie »

I just got a CGC signing email for Liefeld. I've seen him several times, but I do not have the stomach to wait the lines. He has always looked far younger than his years. But that last photo. Damn. He is seriously Benjamin Button. I guess Deadpool royalties allow you all the hair treatments and botox you need.

To some degree, yes! But I am not Peter Pan. I like my middle age.

I love my gray, but not my aches and pains. Someone asked me what my regrets in life were. I said sports. They didn’t get it. When you know, you know.

Check out 3:14 of this Kevin Vanhook video for a look at the actual young Liefeld. From a 1993 Deathmate signing. Signing with a young Jim Lee, Joe St. Pierre, Maurice Fontenot, and Vanhook.

Also at the end check out the line that stretches for blocks out of the comic shop. People who weren't there don't realize how huge comics got in 91-93. 93 was the start of the crash with overhyped, oversold, and undercooked books like Death of Superman and Deathmate being big contributors.

Trying to teach my young kids ping pong though is hard
