I am actually a fan of some of his work too. I just never miss a chance for a joke at his expense
. I know all about it being out of proportion and not "Anatomically Correct". Not even gonna get into what he calls feet, or hills to cover them up, bendy guns, missing/lack of backgrounds, weird faces, the same super action poses and adding art after the fact.
I have his New Mutants run as well as his X-Force work, which is nostalgic for me and some of my favorite. His work just always seemed real comic booky to me. Sometimes, isn't that what it's all about? I'd pay for an original piece of Shatterstar or Deadpool work by the man. Shatterstar is one of my favorite Marvel characters. I see a lot written about how Liefeld is an asshat and can be hard to work with. I Can't judge him as a person, never met him.
Also, I recently saw figures like the ones mentioned in the first post at the Dollar Tree. Some were military themed, some were ninjas.
