Not A Fan Of The New Marvel Masterworks Dustjacket

The mail just came 15 minutes ago and in it I received my Marvel Masterworks Thor Volume 11 from In-Stock Trades. Upon opening the box, I could plainly see that Marvel has added something to the dustjacket design:

As a Masterwork completist you can imagine my horror at the sight. OK It may be anal of me, but I like my books in uniform. You can now see how it lines up on the shelf:

I should point out that I don’t yet own Uncanny X-Men Volume 8, the overall 175th Masterwork so I don’t know if Marvel made the change with that book. If you know, please pass that info along to me. Thor Volume 11 is 176th and we’ll have to wait until next week when Marvel releases Masterwork 177, Golden Age Young Allies Volume 2 to see if this the design sicks.

And just to be clear, I don’t have a problem with the new look. I do have a problem with the new look on an already current series. If Marvel wanted a new design they should have put it on a new Volume 1.

    The only Masterworks I collecti are the Uncanny X-Men ones, so I can confirm that volume 8 has the new trade dress too. I really hate it when they do stuff like this too. :(
