    The Image Seven were Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino, Marc Silvestri, Rob Liefeld and Whilce Portacio.

Early Spawn, WildStorm, Shadowhawk, and later, Witchblade were the only things that remotely interested me about Image. And all of that stopped somewhere in the 90s.

Generally, my feelings are about the same as thuggernaut, just not as extreme. Although, I would even consider their art better than some of these guys' personalities that I've seen.

    Liefeld, yeah I never liked his stuff all that much. He could occasionally put together a good cover or poster but his art and stories were both pretty junky, never understood the hype. His constant rebooting to spike sales was another turn off. He was notoriously late or nonexistent when it came to deadlines.

I cheered the day I heard Liefeld was leaving Marvel.

    Portacio, I don't think I ever read his stuff. He didn't last long, did he?

Portacio had family issues early on with his sister's health, so he quickly withdrew. He returned a couple years later under the WildStorm imprint with WetWorks. Then in 2000, he had diabetes issues, which left him paralyzed and unable to draw for a bit.
