    I hate to be this guy but critter 4c (Tucson con exclusive) isnt a homage cover. 4d has 2 covers, one regular limited to 250 and a 3D one limited to 100


    Be that guy... I want this as accurate as possible. According to the pic on here for the Tucson variant... it is a swipe. I bought both from big dog ink and both were marked as New York versions but as I said above....I am a niche collector at this point. I went by what's on here so people can try to reference them using the site. I will do some more digging and adjust the list.

    Are you looking at the right image? That's 100% an homage right down to the yarn looking like webbing. The artist even copied the McFarlane signature box and credited him.

  • The 2 homage Critter issues are from the New York Comic Con - the logo is on each of the covers. It appears the CBR listings are incorrect as the NYCC and Tucson images are swapped.

    I think CBR may have the wrong image for #4c is what he is saying. I bought them straight from Big Dog and they are both advertised as NYCC variants...the reg variant and a 3d variant. They dont say anything about Tucson. However, I based my list on what I found on here.

    Here is what 4c should be....I think:

  • Ah, I see - CBR has the cover there twice. The NYCC one is the homage.

    Exactly...and there is actually 2 different #4d covers..reg and 3d. I redid the list and showed them both as NYCC variants and labeled them as #4d & #4e.

    junobeach, thanks again for identifying that Sheena cover. In case you did not know or notice, there is a B&W sketch variant to that as well if you are chasing these!

    All, as I stated to tabin78, please correct me on anything you think is incorrect or incomplete. I am not here for pride or to claim I know all... I am here to build and share the most complete SP1 swipe collection and list I can. Swipes are a tough game. Based on all the "lists" and blogs I could find, I thought my swipes were up to date 2 months ago at 21 comics. The list is now at 34 with more of the 13 new ones being back issues, meaning nobody put them into a easily findable list. My goal is to have them all, but while doing so, making it easier for the next guy/gal to start building a set for themselves.

  • No, I'm not chasing them. But I do like reading about people who are 'specialists' and collect certain niches like yours.

  • I've been collecting these cover swipes for years, thought I was the only 1, so glad I found this site, I now have a few more to add to my list.
    I also collect any varients, that I know are not swipes, but look so cool. Platinum, silver,gold,gold UPC, bagged versions etc.

    What are others views on these? I have a few more to add to the list depending on how pure a swipe u are looking for?.

    I also have both varients of critters I can post pictures of if your unsure on the numbers, but they are certainly swipes

    List whatever you think belongs and maybe we can see what everyone thinks... there are some reaches on my list as well. That is why I started this thread. My list is the most complete I have ever come across and wish I could have found. It is as much for the community as it is for me, so I want the community included. I want the help to keep this thing going.... so bring on whatever you think belongs and let's discuss it... keep this thread at the top of the list!!!

  • Simonjtaylor69: I also have all the originals, including the Gold w/UPC Walmart cover as well as 3 of them signed. I don't list them because I feel like anyone making a swipe list is aware of all the original variations by now and only water the list down. They are easy to research, there is no singular place to get a comprehensive list of swipes. There are tons of lists but all with the same 8 core swipes and maybe 3 others that differ site to site. There are quite a few I have never seen on a list anywhere. Hopefully you will add to that.
