An art book of his work with him explaining what he was thinking could be an interesting read. On this particular piece, I would be interested to know why he spent time making their cheeks so gaunt.

To me the most distracting and disconcerting thing is the muscle striation/burn scarring on his neck and shoulders

It really does look as if a bunch of clip art landed on the page and they just went with it.

He could blame the readers for just not 'getting it'.  That seems to be the Marvel approach.

Is the black object protruding from directly between Cap's legs.... a dress shoe? A rare foot sighting??

Has anyone read the issue...is it about body parts? Any insight would be appreciated. Does anyone loose a hand or face?

No one reads Liefeld books so no one has a clue.

Thank you.  This is mind boggling to me-its so easy to do.  Not only did he screw that up, its also crooked!
