A silhouette that some folk see as being reminiscent of a She-Venom piece of fan art posted on DeviantArt back in October 2018 by Russian artist SpaceMaxMarine. Such as one John Francis Gillman who pointed it out to me. Thanks for the tip, John! John points out that the image below is one of the first when searching for She-Venom on Google Images. It was posted a few days after the original Venom movie came out.

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.
