Comics Alliance is reporting that Marvel Comics will be giving away replicas of the severed eyeball of The Watcher, which will be plucked out of the murder celestial being's eye socket as part of the next big super-mega-crossover event, Original Sin.
"I can't wait to get my hands on some of these eyeballs," said Herbert "The Mangler" Jones, a local comic reader and suspected murderer, adding, "And also, my neighbor's dog told me to murder some hookers with a meat cleaver and hack their bodies into tiny pieces and then eat the pieces."
Jones is just one of many fans in the crossover demographic of serial killers who like comics which Marvel is targetting with this latest promotion. Marvel senior editor and Kevin Smith's twin brother Tom Brevoort stressed that Marvel did not condone the murdering of hookers, nor the hacking of their bodies, but the company does not have an official stances on eating the pieces. He also sent out some pics of himself creepily playing with one of the eyeballs:
Original Sin debuts in May. The Marvel Universe will never be the same, just like the families of the victims massacred by Marvel's readers.
