After looking at hundreds of comic book covers, it becomes quickly apparent that not every cover is 100% original. Whether done intentionally or even underhandedly, there’s something about uncovering these “swipes” that adds a new element of fun to reading and collecting comics.

1979’s Alien was a ground-breaking sci-fi film that’s gone on to spawn several sequels, video games, comic books, toys, posters and tons more pop-culture items. It’s popularity has made it the target of a few comic book cover swipes over the years.
