Among the most popular of Liefeld’s creations are Deadpool, Cable, Domino, X-Force, Youngblood, Supreme, Prophet and Glory.
Yeah, 2003 was the year mainstream Hollywood showed up. Halle Berry was also at SDCC 2003. I believe all those big panels were in Ballroom 20.
I also vaguely remember Bryan Singer doing an X-men panel in 2000 (in one of the big room 6s). Ian McKellen popped in for a quick hello.
Great Rob-servations in this episode! In particular your comments about not seeking acclaim from the comic industry. Its nice to see someone just want the connection with the fans and to hell with the comic industries opinions. I also liked the analogy about Image being considered the “Pop Music” of the comic book world at the time. In my opinion, does it matter if the industry doesn’t recognize it? To me, no:) I bought those late New Mutants issues starting at #87 in the era. Not because it was hot or “Pop”, it was because it was fun, creative and different. I’m still blown away by the color’s that were used in those early books and how vibrant the images were. Get it, Images? 😛 Ok, stupid.
And thank you for the GI JOE nods:) I’ve been obsessed since I was 10 years old.
With regards, Mat.S
