AF 15 reprints. Fun facts14553

I have noticed that certain AF 15 reprints do not have OG cover art, but are recreations.

If we look at the 2019 $3.99 reprint compared to the original AF 15 it is an exact match. I’ve only been able to study pics of the original.

Now look at the DVD promo reprint. When compared to the OG, proportions and lines and placements do not match. There’s even a section of a building missing.

2019 reprint left- DVD promo right

Proportions of falling man and position of right hand/arm




Rooftop spectators various proportion and placement differences. Different building details, notably by spideys left foot.



And far in the distance; next to the “also in this issue” box; a lone spectator becomes a vent



Am I crazy or have we been had?

Also the Marvel Milestones edition is the same cover as the DVD promo and Toy Biz covers.

@HulkSmash Yep, the grids on the windows are also very different. Good catch.

@HulkSmash - Here's the Marvel Tales cover. It also has some of the changes you pointed out, as well as other variations.

It looks like the OG spidey has been used. Proportions seem correct and the inking and web pattern look like they match.

Very interesting that everything else would have been recreated or altered in any way.

I wonder how this lunchbox compares. It’s from 2016, I think?
