Occasional Marvel employee James Kochalka’s first impression is right, that cover is awful, least of all because of
Mark Bagley’s Joe Quesada’s illustration. As sickly sentimental as the composition is, the worst crime there is the dreadful typography.
Anyway, Kochalka is just too darned nice to really go for the throat. As he notes below this entry on his Tumblr, “All apologies to the artists involved. I know how hard this is without random dudes trolling you on the internet … so I hope you just take this as a bit of good-natured teasing.”
