The scene with Regan in All-Star Superman by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely is the favourite of many, especially how it is foreshadowed and after-shadowed.
In next week's comics, Tom King and David Finch have a different take… with Batman investigating crimes that look as if they may be related to the new superheroes Gotham and Gotham Girl, in this preview given by DC PR to Comicosity.
Batman #4 is published next week.
In Swipe File we present 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 trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself? If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn't judge, it's 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, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
