Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #43 Wolverine

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 9:57 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.

This one seems like an unintentionally similar cover design. However, knowing that Wild Thing is Wolverine’s daughter does indicate that the creators probably have at least seen the original cover design. So it may have been caused by a subliminal effect.
