In response to additional comments, Zub continued in a thread, “The book goes through multiple editor passes and reviews from multiple people in the office, but I’m not sure who, beyond my immediate editor and from my assistant editor. Sometimes I’m looping in on those. Other times I’m not… I know with the sheer size of Marvel properties in movies and TV, it’s easy to guess the staff is large, but Marvel Comics is smaller in comparison… Preview art like this can sometimes come out before the final proof is complete… Is that ideal? sure not, but I’m grateful it can be fixed.”
