Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #94 A-Next

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 12:21 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.

What If? vol. II #105 is most famous for debuting Spider-Girl but, it was also the first appearance of A-Next. When Spider-Girl got her own ongoing series in 1998, A-Next got theirs as well! This next generation of Avengers included Bluestreak, J2 (the Juggernaut’s son), Jubilee, Mainframe, Speedball, Stinger (Ant-Man II’s daughter), and Thunderstrike II (Thunderstrike’s son). The cover to the final issue of the series paid homage to the first one.
