Captain Midnight #15: Chatto swiping, faults and all

Some days ago I was chatting to some fellow Chatto-philes and in part we discussed the  cover to Captain Midnight #15:

In particular we were distracted by the overlong rubbery legs. On the one hand we joked about the anatomically crude rendering. On the other hand we also conceded that it 'worked' from a design perspective.  

What I didn't know at the time was that the merits or otherwise of this image are not necessarily down to Chatto, for this image is a swipe from Captain Midnight (Fawcett) #61:

The Chatto image was subsequently reprinted at least two more times over the next three years
