Mini-Deathstroke #0 spoilers ahead.
It’s been a common joke to say that Rob Liefeld can’t draw feet. And that he will do anything he can to hide them, so that he doesn’t have to draw them. It’s patently untrue, the opening page of Deathstroke #0, fully written and pencilled by Rob Liefeld, and probably the last such project by Liefeld for DC for at least ten years, has loads of them. Look.
If anything, it’s often a stylistic device not to ground anyone, to keep it looking as if characters are on the move, about to topple, it’s part of Liefeld’s kinetic art style, one that has many flaws but at its heart is all about movement. It’s why kids love it so, they love the kineticism.
But there was one scene in today’s Deathstroke #0 that would be prima facae evidence for anyone looking to make the other case, if it wasn’t surrounded by so much contradictory evidence. With the original Team 7 storming Gamorra. Left to right, that’s Kurt Lance, Grifter, Bronson, Dinah Drake, Amanda Waller (looking a little but chunkier than we’ve seen her of late), Slade Wilson and Alex Fairchild.
He put them all in a swamp! Etc etc etc.,..
Though you might want to read Team 7 issue zero first, also out today, before reading Deathstroke 0.And then read Suicide Squad #0 after that. Just saying. Basically, we’ve got three Amanda Waller issues in one week…
