Not Brand Echh Cover Restoration
Maybe it's just me but this has been bothering me since since I was 8 years old and I now have the means to fix it so...When the second issue of Marvel's sometimes brilliant MAD-style parody comic, NOT BRAND ECHH (actually called just BRAND ECHH in the early issues) came out in 1967, it was seemingly obvious to anyone that Spidey-Man's mask was meant to have a mouth. I mean, seriously! Just look at the thickness of the weblines in that area and how they seem to form a mouth-like shape! Well, not to worry Marvelites! Below, after all of these years-nay! decades!-- is the long-awaited, restored version of Mirthful Marie Severin's madcap merriment complete with Spidey-smile! What bothers me is that Marie, as Marvel's chief colorist, might have miscolored it herself!!!
