Why is J. Scott Campbell wasting his time doing a cover for a Rob Liefeld drawn book?

J. Scott Campbell, who's got quite a talent for drawing hot babes (with Danger Girl being one of his most famous examples) is going to draw a variant cover for a comic called The Infinite written by Robert Kirkman and drawn by none other than horrid Rob Liefeld, and any book whose interiors are drawn by someone like him after he turned into such an awful artist in the early 90s is only asking for trouble.

Now Campbell's style can be an acquired taste for some, but in sharp contrast to Liefeld, his drawing of the anatomy is competent without looking as though he screwed up and smudged the panels, and that's why he makes for a worthy artist, unlike Liefeld, who's long gained notoriety for that.

And I can't understand why a talented artist like Campbell was willing to waste his talents by drawing a coverscan for a book whose interiors would surely be a nightmare thanks to Liefeld (the scripting by Kirkman might be okay, but Liefeld's art alone can ruin everything). Why lend himself as a draw to something that could be embarrassing? It's a real shame, and just shows how desperate Image must be to sell something that Liefeld's name alone will no doubt discourage people from reading.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
