The explanation RL  gave to wizard magazine in '95 was & I quote:

":I am just a terrible artist!"

You are welcome! :roflmao:

What is happening with the leg the kid is grabbing?? Whenever Rob draws blond guys, they always look like him.

The kid is dislocating his leg with his super strength. Can't you tell the kid is a mutant with his right shoe that magically turned into a hoof.

Aw damn one of Fury's eyes is farther from the nose and lower than the other.  Alfred E Neuman?  Goonies?

I didn’t buy any of his stuff back in the day, so I haven’t covered this ground as thoroughly as most of you, so humor me as I beat this dead horse. 

Her feet! What the purple f&@! is at the end of her legs?! The Tarantula wishes he was walking around on weapons like that! It’s a perfect, straight line from knee to toe! Is her name Glory and those are her blades? AAAAaauughh!

 

I’m better now. Thank you got your patience in this matter.

Was there no quality control at Marvel? Wonder what other artist at Marvel were thinking at the time. I remember reading an interview with Herb Trimpe a couple years ago where Marvel in the mid 90's had asked him to mimic the style of Liefeld if he wanted to continue to get work.

I remember Trimpe’s attempt at that; not his finest hour, IIRC. Ultimate Fantastic Four.

I find the proportions more disturbing than the feet, and that's saying something...

I can't stand all the little scratchy lines all over the place around the eyes.

The long gangly out of proportion bodies look terrible.

That first panel is awful.
