Avengers covers X-Men

This week I stumbled across a set of variant covers called Avengers covers X-Men which were all variants for the 24.Now issue of the Avengers series from 2014. On to the swipes!

It’s the small details that make this a great swipe. “Wanda must die!”, the little box with the characters’ heads and the banner at the top all seal it.

I might be in the minority but I absolutley LOVE Mike Allred’s art! There’s something about it that’s very unique. What do you guys think?

While this cover duo is a great example of what an homage should be the comic that is being honored doesn’t deserve the recognition in my opinion.

I like this one because as Rogue has transitioned from the older cover to the newer, her appearance has been updated.

A nice swipe but again not an iconic cover that needs swiping.

Not much to say about this cover…no reason to mess with perfection.

The newer cover was done by Arthur Adams while the older version was done by Neal Adams. They aren’t related in case you were wondering…I googled it!

To me this swipe is the most clever of all of them. Scioli managed to incorporate an important aspect of the story on the inside into his swipe from the outside. Well played Scioli well played!

Another great swipe, probably the best in the series.

There was one last cover in this series that I couldn’t figure out. Please chime in if you know where it was swiped from! (Fixed in post! – Iñigo)
