Gleb Melnikov's Exact Same Face In 40 Pages Of Jinny Hex Special

Yesterday Bleeding Cool posted a little of comic book creator Gleb Melnikov's critique of an issue of Venom a few months ago, that went viral. And, to be fair, is still going viral. "please don't do this. you have 20 pages of superhero comic – you don't wanna waste 3 of them on the exact same face over and over again."

So of course, today sees the publication of the Jinny Hex Special written by Magdalene Visaggio, drawn by Gleb Melnikov, and published by DC Comics under the auspices of Brian Bendis' Wonder Comics. The Brian Bendis who has a reputation for writing the same kind of scene that Gleb criticised. And, of course, a lot of eyes on that issue looking for anything similar. Well, you won't find it. At best, there's these three panels.

Which are then reprised later. And also having a character possessed by Three Eyed Jack, so at least there's an added extra eyeball to throw into the mix…
