This actually looks pretty funny for once. Sabretooth's hair is so 90's.

Making fun of Liefeld? Count me in.

last image of Alpha Flight looks like it was ripped from the pages of MAD magazine
scapegoatjones - 8/18/2014, 8:03 AM
can we get one of the much-lauded officers to cpy+paste the article from newsarama about the "planet venom" as a CBM article. I don't feel like travelling waaaaaaaaaaaay over to another site to read it.
BuckyCap - 8/18/2014, 8:06 AM
LMAO @ everyone's feet being hidden in that final picture!
Nomis - 8/18/2014, 8:07 AM
@ joll - I got to agree with Josh on this one.

The '90s may have been the worst decade for comics.
TelaVizion - 8/18/2014, 8:11 AM
This tie-in has been pretty sucky. Him having a black daughter is kinda cool, but outside of that, this comic just isn't good. His infinite series "Dracula's Gauntlet" was good has hell. Maybe that just spoiled me for Deadpool content.

I kinda don't want him to have a movie like the comics if it'll be like this stuff.

Deadpool origins book was also good.
Jollem - 8/18/2014, 8:15 AM
@Nomis - see, now that's a statement i can better agree with. it may be someone's least favorite decade, but to say it was a terrible decade? i does not agree. i can make a huge list of the great stories that came from the 90's

Jollem - 8/18/2014, 8:16 AM
there's been some wacky stuff before and after the 90's
pepe - 8/18/2014, 8:23 AM
Yikes.... Whattah*ll is this crrrrrap.....?
90's nightmare allover again
MattMan - 8/18/2014, 8:24 AM
hahaha...ALL the feet are hidden. This is great! [frick] you Rob Liefeld!
blackandyellow - 8/18/2014, 8:25 AM
The 90s were a terrible time for comics just because of the art and everyone trying to capitalize on the "extreme" fad. Rob Liefeld is the perfect example.
JoJo1982 - 8/18/2014, 8:36 AM
Lmao I remember like 30 characters that had their hair style like Wolverine in the 90s

Jollem - 8/18/2014, 8:39 AM
and that's just a small bit. i think people just like to repeat popular opinion without giving it any thought for themselves

Nomis - 8/18/2014, 8:42 AM
@ Jollem - Ironically you paste issue from teh 1950s, becasue The '50s is proboly the second worst decade for comics.

Ioronically, the '90s and the '50 have one thing in common: The comic book industry almost died!

In the '50s due to the Senate hearings that really water down the more vigilante type superhero comics and literally put the horror comics out of business.

And in the '90s due to the collector frenzy that eventually led to MARVEL filing for bankruptcy and many independent companies going under.
DukeAcureds - 8/18/2014, 8:42 AM
'90s were undeniably bad, generally speaking. But then there was Vertigo and such, on the flip side of things.

I love how this comic makes fun of the sensational and overly commercial side of the '90s whilst having a "3D motion cover" or whatever they call it.
Nomis - 8/18/2014, 8:44 AM
@ Jollen - Technically speaking...Sandman (Dream) actually started in the late '80s (1989).
TheDpool - 8/18/2014, 8:45 AM
As much of a flashback this is its like an epileptics worst nightmare
Jollem - 8/18/2014, 8:47 AM
@Nomis - yeah, i think the death superman really kind of saved comics

and i could do with ec comics making a comeback
DukeAcureds - 8/18/2014, 8:48 AM
Jollem@ Those are undeniable '90s classics, but that doesn't necessarily make them all good comics. In fact a lot of those (such as Spawn, Jim Lee's X-Men, Knightfall and The Death of Superman) were indeed classic examples of some of the worst elements of the decade. Having said that, I really did love all of those comics and enjoyed them so much at the time. But I did so, recognising that they were entirely driven by commerce and lacked in substance.
Jollem - 8/18/2014, 8:50 AM
whaaaaat? c'mon. '89? one year? you're gonna call the whole run an 80's run?

Jollem - 8/18/2014, 8:50 AM
@DukeAcureds - lacked in substance? are you sure?
cipher - 8/18/2014, 8:51 AM
Wertham really ballsed things up for a long time.
SpiderFraud - 8/18/2014, 8:55 AM
I think most people hate the 90's in retrospect.

As a kid I never realized the hate, till I got older. I personally adore the 60's charm at this moment in life.
TheGreenBastard - 8/18/2014, 9:00 AM
The 90's were great. Maybe not for evdrythung, but I loved Death/Reign/Return of Superman/men, KnightFall/Quest was great, I am probably one of the few, but I liked the 90's clone saga. It was not perfect, but we got Scarlet Spider from it...and spider stinger and impact webbing.
TheGreenBastard - 8/18/2014, 9:01 AM
SpiderFraud: I'd agree with that. I was born in 85, so the 90's was my [frick]ed up childhood.
cipher - 8/18/2014, 9:03 AM
Ha, I'm 25. I was born in '89, so the 90s was my f*cked up childhood, too.
Nomis - 8/18/2014, 9:05 AM
@ Jollem - Actually it was the "Death of Superman" that got the collector Frenzy off and running and eventually led to the industry almost going under.

A lot of non-collectors (i.e none comic book readers) were buying multiple copies of comics that they thought was going to be valuable years later because it was all the rave in the news to invest in comics like the stock market with the recent high value of classic comics from the '40s and '50s.

So when the publishers got the sells figures back and the books were selling three times as much, so they printed out a 2nd and 3rd and forth editions for the comics with multiple covers and gate fold opening and gold leaf type, etc.

But what make a comic a collectable and valuable is it's rarity .

The comics from the '40s and 50s had been destroyed due to War efforts to recycle paper (ironically there were ads in those comics to do just that) and late in the5'0s because of the bad stigma associated with comics and mom just threw them out!

So because of this collector frenzy in the '90s a vicious cycle started in were the comic companies printed too many copies of the comics that they thought was being sold to a lot of people but it was only a handful of collectors buying multiple copies and comic book stores was ordering more than they needed and so the market was over saturated.

So now all these numerous copies of these books that are not worth the paper they are printed on siting on shelves collecting dust when it came back that they wasn't worth anything(even till today).

Comcic book stores closed down. Marvel had to File for Bankrurcy.
Many Independent comic companies went under and DC clean house of writers and artist.

It was a horrible time for the industry that still have YET to recover.

As for 'Dream", I said "technically" speaking it was teh 80s. ;)
EhMaybeSays - 8/18/2014, 9:05 AM
I have to agree with @Jollem
MercwithMouth - 8/18/2014, 9:08 AM
That looks fargin' AWESOME! I love the lack of feet, the 90's Sabretooth is great, and Brian Posehn is an evil genius!
Nomis - 8/18/2014, 9:09 AM
Here, this explain the collector problem in the 90s that almost kill the industry better than I can:

Nivekian - 8/18/2014, 9:09 AM
The post 1995 comics is when thing really went downhill, with the crossover multi-cover hologram #1 multi-title collectors issue crap. As soon as people who thought they could market comics like baseball cards started effecting the market, they screwed up comics so bad the ripples are still echoing 20 years later. As soon as the appearance of the comic superseded content, that's when we were bombarded with crap. And the less I say about Image Comics, the better, because I lay A LOT of fault at the feet of those guys for hobbling an industry I not only loved, but wanted to be a part of.
MercwithMouth - 8/18/2014, 9:10 AM
Speaking of collectables... I just found a nice copy of Moon Knight #1...Anyone wanna buy it? $50...
WruceBayne - 8/18/2014, 9:11 AM
Deadpool has become such a parody. He's a complete joke. When's the last time any of us has bought a Deadpool comic looking for a good story? NOT LATELY.
LEOSTRATOR - 8/18/2014, 9:11 AM
90's comics had some weird and crazy stuff going on, but it was far better than this crap we got now. DC's new 52 and Marvel now is shit, we have less divers characters now than in the 90's. Creator owned comics was at the front which influenced creativity and not sales. Now we get gimmick after gimmick and retold stories.
SpiderFraud - 8/18/2014, 9:14 AM

I like the Clone saga also. I would love to see a slim downed version adapted on the big screen.

Growing up in 90's is weird for me, since my taste differs from most comic fans now. I think Kyle Rayner is a awesome Green Lantern and Wally West is my preferred Flash. I also love the XTREMENESS of certain characters.

Good times.
