I just can't believe that Kirkman loves Liefeld. In an interview he states that he strongly believes that Liefeld is one of the best in the business. Part of it I think is that Kirkman mentions that--I think--Liefeld "inspired him/got him into the business" type of thing. So I guess the concept of nostalgia is there of when Liefeld wasn't concerned as bad as he is concerned to be now, but...man it just saddens me. I won't touch a book because of Liefeld. Period.
