It's time to whip out the big guns, I see. How about this quote from some random guy on the internet?
[quote=Some random guy on the internet...]No, Liefeld steals like crazy. Like crazy. Not only the occasional obvious swipe, but he even claimed a Wolverine cover by Ian Churchill went missing, he then turned in his own version of the cover which was an exact tracing, except hatched in his obnoxious style and with the eyes too far apart and the expressions not quite as good. Then, when everyone including Ian's editor called bullshit, the original cover mysteriously re-appeared (and was the version that saw print). I was one of the people lettering the book, and there was a big to-do about it.
Besides that, he's swiped entire 2-page layouts from books like Frank Miller's Ronin... every panel in the exact same place, every figure in every panel in the same pose. Crazy, crazy stuff.
And not only that, but he owes a ton of people a shitload of money. He's screwed a hundred writers and artists out of pay, including Alan Moore (hadn't paid him last I had heard, anyway). He stiffed the company I was working at for about $10,000 in design work for a couple Supreme trade paperbacks that he released later anyway. Not a fan.[/quote]
How could anyone argue against testimony like that? I rest my case. Quod erat demonstrandum.
