Amazing Spider-Man #121, Daredevil #181 & Action Comics #252

Took me a long time this week to decide which iconic cover to choose for my cover swipe article. There are plenty of swipes out there but it's tough to find one cover with more than a few swipes that are actually done well. So I decided to use this article to highlight some swipes that I am always on the lookout for in my travels to different shops and conventions. Hopefully my editor will be ok with this (Iñigo??? You there?)

Amazing Spider-Man #121

Amazing Spider-Man #121

We all know what happens in this issue…luckily nobody stays dead in comics and Gwen Stacy is now one of the hottest characters out there.

Spider-Man 2099 #4 (Deadpool Variant)

Spider-Man 2099 #4 (Deadpool Variant)

Deadpool seems to be one of the best at swiping covers from other famous books for his series.  I missed out on this one when it came out but would love to get a copy for my collection.  Just look at the Aunt May Deadpool!

Wolverine and the X-men #2 (Marvel 50th Anniversary Variant)

Wolverine and the X-men #2 (Marvel 50th Anniversary Variant)

In my hunt for the Deadpool homage to ASM 121, I came across this variant that came out in 2012.  My shop has it but since it’s a 1:50 it’s a little pricey to buy just for the cover.  Right?

Daredevil #181

Daredevil #181

Another hero, another dead girlfriend(I probably shouldn’t let my wife see this article)

X-23 #15

X-23 #15

Another cover from the Marvel 50th anniversary set.  I probably would have loved all of these when they came out.  Alas I was not collecting at the time and missed out on these.

TMNT #3 (25 Copy Incentive)

TMNT #3 (25 Copy Incentive)

No dead turtles in this one, just a cool cover swipe!

Action Comics 252

Action Comics 252

Everyone knows this is Supergirl’s first appearance.  Or is it?  Remind me to tell you about that some other time …

Supergirl Vol. 5 58 (DC 75th Anniversary Cover)

Supergirl Vol. 5 58 (DC 75th Anniversary Cover)

This one has become somewhat difficult to find.  Last I checked there weren’t any for sale on Ebay and when they do come up they go for a nice amount.

Supergirl Vol 4 75

Supergirl Vol 4 75

This one isn’t as tough to find but I don’t see these too often either.  Was very happy to find one a few weeks ago.

Supergirl Vol. 5 1 (3rd print variant)

Supergirl Vol. 5 1 (3rd print variant)

Not sure why this one is underwater.  Maybe I should read more books instead of just staring at the covers!

Supergirl/Prysm Double Shot

Supergirl/Prysm Double Shot

Proof that covers sell books … I don’t know who Prysm is, nor do I care.  I would still buy this for my swipe collection!

Supergirl Vol 6 38 (Flash 75th Anniversary Cover)

Supergirl Vol 6 38 (Flash 75th Anniversary Cover)

Another anniversary cover, another great cover swipe!

Hope you enjoyed the article! Thanks for reading!
