Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #82 Thing

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 7:55 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.

It’s hard to look at Youngblood’s Badrock and not see the similarity to the Fantastic Four’s Thing. Although, this cover “swipe” by Liefeld (Badrock’s creator), leads me to believe that his character is more of an homage than a swipe.
