Warren Ellis Is Rob Liefeld’s Role Model. Mike Carlin, Not So Much.

Rob Liefeld relatively recently posted about his career and how he believes he revived it, and his reputation, in the wake of Heroes Reborn.

It began with the internet and with Warren Ellis. Yes, Warren Ellis. I had followed him on line and had watched and interacted with his weekly newsletter. He had built quite a tribe on line and I felt that there was much to learn from his example. Remember, this was long before Facebook or twitter were anything even remotely resembling a reality. In short, social media did not exist. So I started by jumping on message boards and interacting with all varieties of threads, even those that were famous for bashing me. I was always calm and polite in the face of the most heinous attacks. I stood my ground and didn’t get involved on an emotional level. If you don’t like me, fine, I can only defend a fallacy about my work not how you feel about me personally.

However, it’s another period of time he is revisiting on Twitter right now… and a certain ex-Senior Group Editor at DC Comics, now Creative Director for DC Entertainment in Burbank. Rob is not shy with his language either.
