Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #79 Spider-Man

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 1:04 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.

Amazing Spider-Man #546 kicked off the Brand New Day direction, showcasing a single Peter Parker and a new publishing schedule (three times a month). The Marvel Apes special featuring Spider-Monkey used it as a target for parody.
