After Rob Liefeld's very public break-up with DC Comics this week the meltdown continues as the creator of Deadpool conducted a battle of words via Twitter with Swamp Thing and Batman comic book writer, Scott Snyder.
Earlier this week Liefeld announced via Twitter that he was leaving DC Comics. The 2012 September zero issues for all three of titles; “Deathstroke”, “Grifter” and “Savage Hawkman” would be his last for the company
“Reasons are the same as everyone’s that you hear. I lasted a few months longer than I thought possible… Massive indecision, last minute and I mean LAST minute changes that alter everything. Editor pissing contests"
He then wrote a much more detailed account of the issues that he faced while working at DC Comics (detailed in this post). But wait, there's more! The train wreck just keeps chugging along as Scott Snyder contacted Liefeld via private messages on Twitter, and then the two took the battle public.

Rob also made the mistake of posting pics of their direct messages; read the next two pics from the bottom up
Batman artist Greg Capullo also got in on the act
Of course many are wondering if Liefeld will head over to Marvel, but Rob didn't help himself there as he got into another Twitter battle with Marvel editor Tom Brevoort. A battle that began when a user asked Tom if Marvel would add Liefeld to their stable.
The best part of this whole thing tbh:
Good luck finding work, Rob!
