Marvel Solicits You're Likely To See

Bloggified by Jake on Wednesday, March 8, 2006

What happens when you combine Chris from 2 Guys Buying Comics ungodly amount of freetime at work with Jake's willingness to neglect his family for Photoshop? It's a glimpse of the road down which Marvel is heading whether they want to admit it or not.

Apologies in advance to the people mentioned below, some of whom put out work I genuinely enjoy. This is nothing but cheap shots. Oh, and be sure to click on the covers to see the bigger versions and get the full effect. Excelsior!
