Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #63 Avengers

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 1:58 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 Secret Invasion tie-ins were filled with classic cover swipes. This one looks back to the first appearance of Hank Pym (who later became Ant-Man and then Giant-Man and then Goliath and then Yellowjacket). Not good enough for you? He also helped create the Wasp and Ultron. Oh! And, he was a founding member of the Avengers.
