To say that the 90’s were a prime example of what not to do in comics would be an understatement. As a young Harkness, I spent more than my fair share of time in the comic shop located conveniently right next to my house, and would often be found perusing every shelf they had. Being a mere child of 7 however, I was strapped for cash, as in I had none, and was hard pressed to be able to take any comic home with me. Luckily, the owner of said shop (Imagination Comics) was very kind to young Arthur Harkness, and let me stay in there as long as I wanted and read everything for as long as I wanted. Jealous? Well you shouldn’t be. The year was 1992…and things were not so great in the world of comics.
Behold Evil Geeks, the strange and wondrous vision that is LIEFELD WEEK!!! That’s right, starting immediately we’re kicking off a week long tribute to the man who was a god in our youths and is now a pariah as we’ve grown older. Whether you’re willing to admit it or not at one point in your comic loving life, you probably idolized the guy, now we’ll be forever immortalizing him with a tribute so spectacular that it’s going to take a week to get it done. Arthur Harkness, Biff Tannen, Big Evil, C-Mart and Martian Luthor Kang are no more (at least for this week anyway)! In their stead, Darkhyr Harknex, Blitz Tannyn, Extreme Evil, Psy-Mart, and BloodKang are getting us started with a special Rob Liefeld themed podcast! Make sure to check back all week for Liefeldian goodness!
