Here is the cover to the latest Comic-Con magazine featuring Samuel L. Jackson as the Octopus on the cover.


I know the first thing out of many commenter’s mouths will be the fact that readers never saw the face of the Octopus in The Spirit comics. As I said over a year ago, the biggest problem with seeing Jackson’s face on screen is the demand for face time. It would be so much nicer if he would have played the entire role in shadow. His voice is famous enough to let audiences know it is him.

    Why can’t Octopus Jackson just be a realistic mask? Are we just being jaded to make sure it’s still a “twist” when the movie releases?
