Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #22 Scarface

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 6:53 am

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.

1983’s Scarface starred Al Pacino and has risen in popularity as a cult classic. If you caught any episode of MTV’s Cribs, you were sure to see a rapper showing you his copy of the movie. And, as is the case with anything popular, it becomes the target of spoof, satire and parody! The famous line “Say hello to my little friend!” has been used in countless other movies and in 2009 Deadpool got in on the action with a cool cover swipe.
