Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #80 Defenders of Dynatron City

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 1:26 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.

In 1992, LucasFilm Games released Defenders of Dynatron City for the NES. An animated pilot based on the characters was produced that same year and featured voice work by Christopher Walken and other notable actors. It failed to get picked up as an ongoing series but, the film was released on VHS (remember those?!). The property was also licensed by Marvel, and a six issue mini-series was published written by Steve Purcell (best known for creating Sam & Max).
