More comic art swipes: Dr. Strange and X-Men


M.D. #1 (Apr-May 1955) & Dr. Strange #169 (June 1968)

  • As initially mentioned by BookSteve in comments to the post about the Adkins/Finlay swipe, here is the source and the offending panel. This was just shameless.

X-Men #132 (April 1980) & Astonishing X-Men #15 (August 2006)
  • I'd call this an homage even though Whedon went through too much of a contortion of this Hellfire Club story to have Kitty just happen to solidify deep in the earth in a small cavern that held some breathable air and waist-deep water. If intended as a hat tip to previous creators, it's fanboy-ish, awkward and clumsy.

  1. The Xmen thing doesn't bother me. I think if you create an entirely new drawing, calling it a swipe seems a little odd.

    The Dr. Strange thing though- that's a stone cold swipe.

    In other words, it was written by Joss Whedon...
