Just picked up some crazy kinda-comic that Marvel puts out called “Marvel Previews” which i guess used to be a part of Diamond Previews but Marvel decided it wanted to do it’s thing separate. On the cover it says “50 cents or free with purchase of Diamond Previews.”
Anyway, there’s a preview for a new Spiderman comic called “Spider-Man Unlimited #1” and it says “Cover by SHINKIRO (of Capcom)” …
What’s up with that? Total ripoff idea.
The cover itself looks awesome cuz they picked the right guy … i don’t think it’s as good as the special Udon Street Fighter cover for issue #5, but it’s still pretty amazing.
Plus the comic itself has two stories featuring two pairs of writers/pencilers which again is a rip of the SF comic with the backup story format that Udon has.
Tho i guess i shouldn’t be surprised that Marvel is the first company trying to jump onboard Udon’s successful innovations. They have buff resources to throw around when they need something done fast.
It’s still a little bit weird seeing “by SHINKIRO (of Capcom)” anywhere near Marvel.
