yeah, one of those four dudes in the background is actually checking him out. The layout for this is reminiscent to the layout of the cover for the counter-fifth detective (100 bullets), I think... but it's still an effective layout, and the gun is priceless.
I remember hearing about this--one half was pissed that they turned a classic character gay, and I believe the other half was pissed that they made the gay character a stereotype. I hope to find it at some point and judge for myself.
cripes man, again. I didn't know you did this cover. As a request from someone I did a Rawhide Kid sketch card for the Marvel 70th set (the guy was into the older non gay version) and I couldn't find proper ref. I kept seeing this pic but it was tiny.
