Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #26 Nick Fury

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 3:55 pm

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.

The first Scorpio debuted in Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1. Jim Steranko concocted a now-classic cover featuring Nick and his pals with his evil brother, Jake (Scorpio), lurking just around the corner. Years later, Acclaim Comics had a “swipe month”, and Bloodshot paid homage to this classic cover. Gordon Purcell also paid homage to that very cover with the Christian comic, Powermark’s Seeker Series.
