Wack Cover Week Rages On: When Breasts Are Lame

I’m not going to pretend to understand the publishing history of Glory. I also can’t comment on the character, as lame as she may look, because I don’t know a thing about her. But these covers I can talk about.

So what have we learned? Sometimes you come up with Spider-Man. Sometimes, Leap Frog. The greatest success is merely just a tweaked version of the largest failure. Keep the faith.
