When most comic fans hear the name Rob Liefeld there are many things that come to mind. While his overly muscular designs and overabundance of pouches were a mainstay we can never forget that he did add some memorable touches to a variety of storied franchises and brought some really cool characters to life including Youngblood for Image and, of course, everyone's favorite “Merc With a Mouth” Deadpool. Liefeld heads back to Marvel to for a new Deadpool original graphic novel aptly titled Deadpool: Bad Blood. While I have a love-hate relationship with Liefeld's work I'll admit that when Deadpool is involved we can always expect something special. Deadpool: Bad Blood bolsters Marvel's increasing Original Graphic Novel line and gives us more Deadpool which is never a bad thing.
