Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I’m gonna try this one issue because I like Kirkman… but why is Rob Liefeld allowed to draw still? 

  2. If kirkman’s name is on it, I will throw money at it. 😉

  3. @thompsonlive : QFT.  A Kirkman original #1?  Don’t even have to look.  Just gimme.

  4. Will be the first Kirkman series I buy in single issues, due to it being a maxi-series or whatever. (8 issues or something right?)

    I understand the Liefeld complaints, but I didn’t really read comics in the 90s, and I think from what I’ve seen in the previews – this book should really work with his art.

  5. This will probably be the only book I pick up this week, so I hope my shop gets it in. 

  6. I love the art.  I didn’t get the chance to read his stuff during his prime!

  7. I wonder if this will be good, bad or horrible.  I thought Rob’s art was great on Hawk and Dove, but it’s been downhill since.  And while I really like Kirkman on Invincible, the Image United series (what we have of it so far – if it will ever been finished) was just not very good.

  8. Super psyched for this.

  9. @SteenAR  – everyone deserves to be able to do what they love. It’s obvious that he isn’t doing it for the money. So what if he isn’t as good as other people. That said, he isn’t my cup of tea and I’ll get this because of Kirkman.

  10. Liefeld had a prime?

  11. Hey wait a minute… Where’s that guy’s feet?

  12. @horrorofsorts  You beat me to the punch on the feet comment. I was about to post that and then I scrolled down. Do you think there will be any OVERSIZED GUNS or shoulderpads? maybe some two bladed swords. I love Kirkman but I’m hessitant to pick this up since I can’t stand Liefeld.

  13. Man, that cover just oozes 90’s dudeness. Dammit Kirkman, why’d it have to be Liefeld? I’ll flip through it at the store, see how tolerable the art is.

  14. I can’t believe i’m going to buy a book thta Rob Liefield is drawing. What am I? 10 years old?

  15. @heylook Its going to be way more than eight. Its not going to be a ongoing that goes forever like invincible and walking dead, but it will go on for a few years.

  16. The art really turns me off from this unfortunately:(

  17. @Suicidalkangarooz  It looks like it’s only 6 issues on Comixology.  

  18. boy people give Liefeld a ton of shit…. Kirkman on it, im sold…. absolute pick up!

  19. @misterckent Kirman said otherwise and I tend to belive him on that subject.

  20. So how many years do you thing it is going to take before we get to 10 issues of this.

  21. I actualy miss Liefeld’s art, and the whole 90’s Image style. I don’t want all my books to be like that but one is nice. It’s a fun throwback romp 🙂

  22. @xiseerht  apparently they already have 4 or 5 already completed

  23. I totally get the criticism of Liefields art, and in these days of photo realistic drawings and the like, his style is a defiantly a throwback to the early 90’s. I have to admit Rob Liefield saved comics for me. Let me explain before the stones are casted….
    I had stopped buying comics around 1989, in a way bored by the “grim and gritty” copycats flooding the market. All trying to be the next Dark Knight or Watchmen. But what these copycats didn’t realize was that although TDKR and WM were grim comics, they were also FUN and rejoiced the art form of comics. Just because a comic had a hero that had issues and brooded panel after panel, that didn’t make for a groundbreaking comic – of even a fun comic to read. Watchmen is bleak at times yes, but what a blast to read, what a joy to read. It is a comic book and not afraid to be one. The real reason I started reading comics in the first place – because it was fun.
    In the 80’s I was a DC guy all the way. And collected it all. But by 1989 the company like I said gave in to the mediocre talent and the books suffered. There was a mass exodus from DC, me included.
    Cut to a few years later, I was in my local book store checking out the magazine section, when I knelled down and saw the cover to X-Force #1. The art right away got my attention. I opened the comic and flipped thru. This was like no other comic art I had seen. I was intrigued. I bought the comic and went home and poured over the panels of Liefields art. IT. WAS. OUTRAGOUS. and to me, it breathed NEW life into an art form I had fallen out of love with. Sure the story sucked balls, but for now this was cool as all hell and I was in again.
    I see a parallel to what Liefield did in the 90’s to what Robert Kirkman is doing to the comic world right now – breathing new life into them and making then FUN again. TO me this team up is in a way Rob passing the torch to Robert.
  24. Would have bought this, but I can’t stand the sloppy artwork.

  25. picked it up to give it a shot but the art style just dosent work for me

  26. This looked like typical lazy Liefeld work.  No backgrounds, same guys he always draws.  My POSOW.

  27. I intended to buy this, then I thumbed through it. Ugh. I couldn’t bring myself to make this purchase.

  28. I’m in for one more because I like Kirkman. I’m not a fan of Leifeld, but I didn’t think it was as bad as he can get. Issue two will be my do or drop.

  29. If you like shoulder pads, pouches and weird looking guns this one’s for you! Also that one guy has a mohawk which is clearly awesome! In all seriousness though the story wasn’t that bad but the art just seemed rushed for the most part  and i may be mistaken but is that a metel cod peice front and centre on the first page?

  30. Well I wanted to buy it but it wasnt available digitally, I guess they dont want my money.

  31. wait looks like you can buy it digitally at via your web browser not sure why it’s not in the comixology app though.

  32. You would think Liefeld would’ve figured out how to draw feet by now.  I was hoping the story would be good enough to carry the bad art but I didn’t think it was.  

    This book is straight out of the 90’s and it kinda made me feel like I was 13 again the same way listening to an old album can, but I think one issue was enough for me.

  33. I liked this enough to check out issue 2, but I felt like the story was secondary to the action, like we were running through it instead of getting it. The art wasn’t as bad as some other Liefield stuff I’ve seen before.

  34. I don’t have the hate for Liefeld’s art that many do, but it did make me think twice before buying this issue. I didn’t think the writing was very good here, but I found myself wondering if that was influenced by the art. In any case, I’ll likely check out the next issue, but I don’t envision sticking with this series.  Plus, if I hear that it chugs along to awesomenss, I’ll pick up the trades, wince all my other Kirkman stuff is in trade.

  35. I thought the whole thing was abysmal.  The story was ridiculous, the dialogue was laughable and the art, well it’s leifeld, what more do i need to say.  I dropped this from my pull list as soon as i finished it.

  36. Wow!! This was friggin terrible!!  Sad to say because Kirkman is involved, but one of the worst books I have read all year.

  37. Brought me back to the 90s. Thought it was fun
