Our LA journey brought us to the home of one of the most MemorableÂ characters in comics. There’s not much for me to say about Rob Liefeld that you probably don’t already know. He was an artist at Marvel for his early career, creating characters such as Cable and Deadpool and the poly-bagged X-Force #1. Left Marvel to cofound Image Comics. Created Youngblood and a whole bunch more there, including Prophet(which Brandon and roadtrip buddy, Simon Roy, are both current creators on).
Rob was a very welcoming host, chatting with us for several hours about the highs and lows of comics. It was probably the most energetic part of the LA roadtrip, thanks to Rob’s infectious loves of pictures and words on paper.
