After looking at hundreds of comic book covers, it becomes quickly apparent that not every cover is 100% original. Whether done intentionally or even underhandedly, there’s something about uncovering these “swipes” that adds a new element of fun to reading and collecting comics.

Amazing Spider-Man #129 is one of the biggest key comics of the bronze age. It’s the first appearance of the Punisher – a character based on Don Pendleton’s Mack Bolan the Executioner – who went on to star in hundreds of his comics. It’s also the first appearance of the Jackal – the mastermind behind the infamous Spider-Man Clone saga of the 1990s. The very limited [print run: 1,500] Mid-Ohio variant of No Hero #1 pays homage to this classic cover.
