Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed #157 Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Filed under: Swiped: Comic Book Cover Swipes Exposed! — Doorman @ 12:00 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.

After the events of the Dark Phoenix Saga, wherein Jean Grey is killed off, Cyclops left the team in X-Men #138. The cover of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight #35 pays homage to this milestone issue.
