Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld is certainly one of the more influential comic book artists of all time, but perhaps we didn’t know just how wide his sphere of influence has spread.
Sure, this weekend’s big box office smash, Deadpool 2, could never have been, had it not been for Liefeld (and writer/co-creator Fabian Nicieza), but not everything he touched turned to gold. In fact, it turns out, one of his bigger influences on the comic book world may not have been a fully positive one.
**SPOILER WARNING: One little joke in Deadpool 2 kicked around liberally below!**
Seemingly influenced by one of the more meta jokes in the totally meta sequel – that comic book artists have issues drawing feet, a dig that was obviously intended to take a shot at the creator himself – Liefeld tweeted out a litany of evidence revealing that his “feet drawing disease” had far reaching consequences…
So let’s all give kudos to Liefeld for taking his #nofeet campaign public…
And for being committed to healing his fellow artists, even in the face of this overwhelming feat.
