Deadpool's Year-Long Anniversary Celebration Continues With More Rob Liefeld Covers

Deadpool's Year-Long Anniversary Celebration Continues With More Rob Liefeld Covers


Jay Cochran - January 27, 2021
Announced last month, Deadpool’s 30th anniversary will be celebrated all year long with an incredible series of variant covers all drawn by Deadpool co-creator and legendary artist Rob Liefeld. Liefeld will bring Deadpool to life on 30 different covers that will be released on some of your favorite ongoing series throughout 2021, and today, Marvel Comics is proud to present the next set of covers in this amazing collection. Getting the star treatment he deserves, the Merc with the Mouth will be teaming up with heroes from all across the Marvel Universe such as Captain America, Iron Man, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and more.

“When the opportunity to illustrate 30 variant covers commemorating Deadpool’s 30th anniversary came up, I literally jumped at the chance! I went over a quick checklist with the Marvel brass and I think we’ve picked a great array of Marvel’s biggest and brightest stars to pair with the Mighty Merc on over 30 unique covers!” Liefeld said. “It’s giving me a chance to draw Deadpool with Marvel stars I’ve never drawn before, like Miles Morales and Silver Surfer! This is going to be grand, I hope the fans enjoy this special event. It’s a blast putting it all together!”

Three decades ago, Deadpool first appeared in the legendary NEW MUTANTS #98 by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza, and the comic book world has never been the same! Be sure to celebrate Deadpool’s big year with these extraordinary covers when they begin debuting in March!

The sad thing is that Captain America looks like one of his better drawings of him lol

The only conclusion I can come to is the old Ad man's mantra: "It doesn't matter if they love it or hate it, as long as they remember it."

The mere fact that we're all still discussing Liefeld after 30 years gives a kind of sick credence to Marvel, or anyone else, still hiring him today.

You have a point there. His ugly, malformed art definitely sticks with you.

Well, at least he's now been relegated to mostly cover art (probably self imposed), and we only really have to look at one page. Unfortunately it's the first one we see.

I'm definitely going to try and stay away from these covers, lol.

Nostalgia is a very powerful marketing tool

Liefeld is simply using the fact that he was ONE  of the people who created Deadpool to make himself bigger then he is. He literally spend one solo series drawing the character before is was forcefully taken off of him. Hell, to Liefeld the character was just a broading funny wolverine. It wasn't until it was taken off of him that he became the Merc with a mouth we all know and love.

Bruh thats hilarious, makes that cover look like it was drawn by an amateur

Hey, give the kid some credit. He's gotten way better at using shading and texture line to cover up his total lack of anatomical knowledge. If he don't know what it looks like he just covers it up. Scratch that thought. If that was the case the entire damn cover would be one big black box.

Liefeld is one of the few artists that managed to sell 5 million copies of his comics, and it was partially if not mainly because of his art, which people liked for some reason, I guess reason being absolute unorthodoxy of his style. So he is indeed legendary, his art is even worse today than it was in 90s but his name is still marketable to some degree, and if something sells more comics publishers will do it, especially in comics market that is in dire straits.
