Robservations is the new podcast by Comic Book Legend Rob Liefeld which exists to explore and celebrate comic books as an art form and their tremendous impact on the culture.
The 90’s Strike Back!
The 90’s was an electric time for comic books with record setting sales from Marvel as well as the stunning launch of Image Comics. A slew of fresh characters and creators combined to re-shape the industry. The young fans of that era have come of age, their collective buying power is driving prices of comics, art and collectibles to new heights! Plus, an encounter with William Shatner!
Comic Book Feuds! VENOM vs. The Comics Industry!
No character in modern day history has more Fathers laying claim to his parentage than Venom! The fight for Venom is loaded with juicy vitriol and nasty exchanges between multiple creators sharing their version of the process that conceived of the most celebrated Symbiote! Also - notes from a comic con, NYCC 2021!
The Star Wars
An examination of how George Lucas original screenplay, THE STAR WARS, the earliest incarnation of his celebrated space saga, was eventually realized as both a comic book and a line of toys. Anakinn Starkiller! General Skywalker! Plus a crazy convention story from the past that Rob has never shared!
Spider Man:No Way Home! Dr. Strange: Multiverse Of Madness! Flashpoint! We are about to be deluged with multiple Multiverse films from both Marvel & DC. Rob takes you back to his first thrilling encounter with Multiversity’s and the myriad of possibilities they represent, then and now!
Erik Larsen! Spider Man! Savage Dragon!

There are few creators that have achieved what Erik Larsen has! 260 consecutive issues of Savage Dragon and there’s no slowing him down! Our 90 minute discussion covers a career of outstanding benchmarks including his upcoming ANT series!
The Forbidden Fruits!
As unimaginable as it seems in our modern age of technology, many incredible works, almost all of them adaptations, are out of print with little hope of being restored. Battlestar Galactica! ROM! Logan’s Run! These are chief among the very best sci-fi series adaptations that are inaccessible, representing the finest of the Forbidden Fruits! Rob runs down the best of the uncollected editions!
I can’t get enough of Rob’s anecdotes. Highly informative and very entertaining. Long may it continue!
