From what I've heard, to get continued work in comics (and probably most other fields), you have to be at least two of three things- good, fast, or nice. From what I've heard, Liefeld has the last two down, with the fast option coming provided he's got an editor keeping tabs on him.
OK, but there has to be a minimum standard for all three. Surely even if work is delivered on time and the creator is pleasant to work with, if the material is fanzine level at best it should be rejected by a major professional publisher.
This was actually the first stuff I'd read from Liefield in years. His work has deteriorated even from where it was-and Lobo and Deathstroke should have been characters he could handle, at least in over-the-top 90s style.
AND, if he hadn't been in the business for 20 years, yeah, he might have been canned. But the fact is that at this point, his name is considered to have some meaning.
