This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 74, Blocks: 38 Missing: {W} Spans: 2 This is puzzle # 157 for Mr. Quigley. This is the debut puzzle for Ms. Donovan. NYT links: Across Lite PDF
Jim Horne notes:

This is similar in concept to a 2005 puzzle by Courtenay Crocker III where the key phrase was MAN IN OUTER SPACE. A few other puzzles required scribbling beyond the lines. Here's one from 2006 that asked you to think outside the box and more recently, there was this outsiders puzzle from 2012. For a rather different but equally clever MAN rebus, see this 2003 crossword by Dan Reichert.
