    The newest printing of the Marvel Zombies hardcover (the fifth printing - wow!) is causing quite a stir because of it's cover. The cover for the new printing is:

    This is a homage to a Mary Jane/Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane cover that has alot of people upset once again at Marvel.

    Here is a link to one article that expresses disgust on about the cover (link contains adult language):

    Other blogs around the net have expressed a collective "ew" with the new cover.

    I will add that even though the bought the entire mini-series I decided to pick up the hardcover anyway and ther story is still fun with some gorgeous artwork. Hard to believe that such a fad could erupt over a comic like this. I bet Marvel had no idea that Marvel Zombies would be this big.

    I was trying to figure out why I thought the furor over the latest reprint cover was overblown, but couldn't quite pin it down. Luckily, Steven Grant managed to figure it out and articulate it better than I could.

    I was also a bit puzzled about why they selected THAT cover out of all the covers they have to do an homage. Not that I don't like the original cover, but it seems like there are a bunch of other Marvel covers that they could have homaged instead that would have gotten a bit more recognition.
