    I think this guy was drawn by Liefeld in a past life. His feet are hidden by the bottom of the panel, his hands are different sizes, he’s not exactly “holding” that little mic/radio thingy, and that is some of the most ham-fisted dialog I’ve ever seen. Plus, he somehow has an early 90’s haircut in the middle of the 40’s…

    What about pouches? EVERY Liefield work has pouches!

  5. Avatar Brad says:

    Nah, it’s lacking the Liefeld “EXTREME!” touch. Plus his package isn’t very noticeable. I’m with Joe, no Liefeld is complete without pouches or a crotch ready to poke your eye out.

    I just want to say thank you for ridding us of the yellow. it was kind of an eye sore after awhile.

    Wow! I’m having flashbacks of trips in the car with my dad after he locked the windows!

    Whoops, that comment landed in the wrong place. But thanks nonetheless, let’s pretend this is on the new UI thread.

    What most got me about this panel is how he looks like he’s cupping his hand to his mouth and SHOUTING the news, as if there’s a picnicking group of friends just off-stage and he’s letting them know what’s going on.

    “NOW THEY’RE SHOOTING BULLETS AT ME!”
    “NOW I AM PIERCED IN A HUNDRED PLACES AND GUSHING BLOOD!”
    “NOW I SEE A BRIGHT LIGHT! NANA, IS THAT YOU?!”

    And no one notice that those ‘futuristic’ tanks seem to be slightly more modern than WWI vintage… πŸ˜€

    Jeff, this costume is a candidate for your bad costume reviews.

    I find it disturbing that he seems to have Bulletman jammed down his pants

  13. Avatar Dionne Jinn says:

    I always thought that when there is gas around it would be wise to hold your breath. But shouthing seems to be the solution.

  14. Avatar Me, Myself & I says:

    spidercow2010 (12) its not Bulletman, its the little Travelocity Gnome.

  15. Avatar frankie says:

    I thought it was an arrow to keep you from looking at his packageless pants, and to look at his mighty pecs instead.

  16. Avatar yoda22 says:

    WTF THEY ARE ATTACKING ME WITH GAS that would be funny
