New Collection Theme: Reflection Covers1057

COLLECTOR DarthLego private msg quote post Address this user
After seeing @MR_SigS collection of "surrounded" covers I've been on a search for my own theme to start collecting. I've finally decided that the theme will be covers that feature a closeup of a character and other characters "off camera" (for lack of a better term) reflected in the characters weapons/helmet/visor/etc. The most famous one of these covers is probably Hulk #340, and the first addition to my collection is this variant of TMNT #22 which is an homage to Hulk #340.




If anyone wants to post covers that fit this motif to help in my search please feel free. Here is a list of some I have already identified.

Hulk #340
TMNT(IDW) #22 variant
Astonishing X-Men #57
Spawn #226
Marvel Zombies #3
Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens #1,2,3
JLA #52
Amazing Spider-Man #346
Web of Spider-Man #15
Katana #7
Justice League 3001 #7

@DarthLego thanks! I'm leaving the house and just remembered, there's a couple of ASMs with Doc Oc that would fit the theme; I wanna say an early ASM 50ish and 670ish. Sorry not more helpful, I know if didn't post now I'd completely forget by the time I can look haha.

Teen titans rebirth #1



You might consider limiting your criteria. I can think of 3 or 4 more modern books that just came out with your theme.

Took a stroll through the ASM universe and came up with these. I actually already have ASM311 and forgot about it.

@Revelations I don't know why I would want to limit it, it's already a pretty strict set of criteria, and half the fun is finding new ones. I actually have Teen Titans Rebirth on pre-order, I had forgotten about that one.

I know you listed a couple of the covers I posted; I just thought it'd be cool to have the images posted in the thread.
Here's another one:

I could be wrong but Hulk #340 seems to be homaged quite a bit.

Actual mirrors don't really fit my criteria. The reflection needs to be a part of the character in focus through costume or weaponry, but some cool covers regardless.

There are probably thousand of covers with your theme. Imo, that's just a little much for a collection theme. haha.
