Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #60 Thor

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 8:24 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.

The Super-Skrull is mainly a Fantastic Four villain but, on special occasions, other heroes get pitted against him. Even cooler than the Doom swipe is the swipe featured in the Hellboy movie. In the film, they show a Hellboy comic (that was never actually published) and it features a cover swipe of this very issue, illustrated by Mike Mignola.
