Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #52 Fantastic Four

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 3:33 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.

Thor takes on a mystery villain in this homage to the Fantastic Four‘s first battle with the Hulk. Mystery villain? Oh, who am I kidding. This book is over 20 years old … It’s Annihilus! That adds another little twist to the reasoning behind it all since Annihilus debuted in Fantastic Four Annual #6.
