A Rob Liefeld Christmas

Poking around the t00bz, I found a reference to something that only a 'tacticool' cosplayer would find appealing... behold the 'Tactical Christmas Stocking':

The first thing that came to my mind when I saw that pouch was the comic art of pouch-aficianado Rob Liefeld, who at least seems to have a sense of humor in the face of detractors.

If I were Santa Claus, I'd think twice before sneaking into the house of anybody hanging one of these puppies on the mantelpiece... nobody wants to get their ass shot off by a Mall Ninja?

Hah! I remember the Liefeld hatred from my art school days--and yes, he was the master of the multiple pouches worn just about everywhere.

Over the years, though, I've actually cut him quite a bit of slack--maybe it's just me getting older (and also looking back at my art from those days...and boy, did I suck!) and also realizing that no, I genuinely do not think he gets up in the morning to say, "Let me draw some horrible art today!". He certainly has a lot of work to his name, and hell, he gave us I guess that evens things out (somewhat).

He seems to have a good sense of humor, which makes me incapable of hating on the guy (though goofing on him is A-OK).
