Swipe Alert!


   I was looking through some comics online and came across this cover for Fiction House's Fight Comics issue #40 and my swipe-sense started tingling. If you're not familiar with the term 'swipe' it means when one artist uses the art of another artists as the basis for his own work. I an famous in fan circles for my ability to spot them. What can I say? I have a very visual memory. Anyway, it's fairly obvious that the 1943 Jungle Stories cover was the inspiration for the 1945 Comic. But hey, Jungle was a Fiction House pulp magazine so it was all in the family.
