Separated At Birth: Batman And Spider-Man, One More Time

Separated At Birth: Last October, saw the release of Detective Comics #1029 from DC Comics, with the following cover by Lee Bermejo. But does anyone else see the similarity with an upcoming cover by Mark Bagley to Giant-Size Amazing Spider-Man: The Chamelon Conspiracy #1 from Marvel Comics for June. But the Spider-Man cover itself was a homage to the Humberto Ramos cover from Amazing Spider-Man with Kraven from 2019…

Layer upon layer upon layer…

Separated At Birth used to be called Swipe File, in which we presented two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences, or works of the lightbox. We trusted you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself. If you were are unable to do so, we asked that you please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File didn't judge; it was interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal, who originally ran this column and the now-defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
