Marvel has been running a promotion where puzzle pieces of the above promo art for “The Year of Spider-Man” — like when ISN’T it the Year of Spidey — have been released over time, with many comics news sites playing along. We didn’t, because the sight of MJ in a wedding dress hurls us into a flashback of endless whiny message board postings. We did note one thing about the art by Pasqual Ferry:
Spidey is managing a kind of reverse, double-back gainer male version of the brokeback pose where you can get a good look at his butt and his package. Anatomically it’s very possible, but really a fine example!
