Superstar artist and outrageous personality Rob Liefeld is finally getting the recognition he deserves as Marvel just announced a new Deadpool vs. X-Force series that's set before Deadpool first appeared in New Mutants #98, which is of course right before Liefeld rebooted the book as X-Force and broke sales records with those polybagged #1 issues with the holographic trading cards. You know the ones. Don't remember? Check the quarter bin at your shop.

In any case, this was the time that Liefeld's popularity was exploding, and anyone reading comics at that time who claims not to have found his art fresh and exciting back then is lying. Hey, don't be embarrassed. We all collectively had an unnatural obsession with parachute pants and mullets around that same time period.

The series will be written by Duane Swierczynski with art by Pepe Larraz and a cover by Shane Davis. There's no release date set yet, but look for it later this year. In the meantime, try to look at these images from the book of the X-Force gang in their 90s costumes and not suffer pangs of sweet, guilty nostalgia.

The Outhouse is sponsored this week by Late Nite Draw. Recently featured on ComicsAlliances' Best Art Ever, he is a Chicago-based commissioned artist with a self-published Digital+Print one-shot coming out in October about the abominable snowman called ABOBAMANIMABBLE, and is also available for commissions.
