The Sun quotes Rich Johnston in a scathing story about the upcoming X-Statix issues featuring the resurrection of Princess Di:

The cartoon — published by New York-based Marvel Comics — has been branded “sick” and “tasteless”. Richard Johnson [sic], editor of a comic industry website, said: “Most people think this is in incredibly bad taste.

“This is the first time a specific celebrity has appeared in the book.

“I think the only reason for that is to attract more attention.”

Peter Milligan (writer) and Joe Quesada are quoted in a manner likely to provoke already galled readers. Mike Allred, the artist, does not get mentioned.
