Rob Liefeld responds to critics: 'Internet snark has no effect on me'

By
Rob Liefeld has responded to criticism of his original work on titles such as Glory, Prophet and Bloodstrike.

The divisive artist has handed his properties over to creators including Brandon Graham, Joe Keatinge and Tim Seeley for the Extreme Studios relaunch, with his critics insisting that their work is superior.

However, Liefeld insists that he is unfazed by the naysayers, claiming that his contribution to comics over the last two decades speaks for itself.

"The internet snark has zero effect on me. I was there 20 years ago, I'm out there on the convention circuit, I experience the real and tangible enthusiasm for me and my work," he told Slate.

"You can't rewrite the history books, you can't eliminate the impact of my work and my characters," he added. "Rob Liefeld is to today as Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan are to my kids."

Liefeld made the headlines earlier this year when he parted company with DC Comics under controversial circumstances, citing editorial interference among the contributory factors behind his exit.
