Florida Geek Scene interviews Jimmy Palmiotti regarding "the Queen Crab incident"
The cover for the recently-released, Jimmy Plamiotti-scripted QUEEN CRAB graphic novel (seen at left) features an admittedly vulgar gesture, fused with Cronenbergian "body horror" and it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the image can simultaneously be read as both "shocking" and lewdly humorous. Nonetheless, it was probably inevitable that such imagery would cause some random shopper to take note and be offended by it — someone who clearly has no place better to direct their righteous indignation, if you ask me — and sure enough, such a scenario has come to pass. Florida Geek Scene got wind of the incident in question and interviews Jimmy about it here.
