That's hardly the same at all. I mean, in the first picture, the pilot is wearing a SWIMSUIT. Contact me when you've got any true proof of swiping.

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.

That's a pretty bad one, but there's another Re:Gex one. The guy is in green I believe.

That IS pretty good random testimony, but it needs more dog juggling for believability. I only listen to random guys on the internet when they're claiming to do outrageous acts like dog juggling, swordfish fencing, or drinking a gallon of milk in under an hour.

It's just the way I live.

Every planet has its own weird customs. About a year before we met, I spent six weeks on a moon where the principal form of recreation was juggling geese. My hand to God. Baby geese. Goslings. They were juggled.
