way faster to google it than to wait for replies here.

article: https://comicbookinvest.com/2015/03/14/action-comics-1/

a pinterest board (must be a member to view all): https://www.pinterest.com/coreyrblake/cover-tributes-to-action-comics-1/

also searching on 'that' auction site, using search terms as so: (homage,swipe) Action 1

possibly someone has a list from Overstreet guide too, since they denote many AC1 cover swipes, but I didn't find any on a search.

that oughta get you started.

also, I'd think you'd get more response on the General board, don't you? while AC1 swipes are technically back issues, this seems to be more of an info request topic best suited to General, which probably gets more eyeballs..

Collectibleshop, A Google search always seems like the right answer but I want to start a conversation not work alone on a computer. (Can you tell that I like to talk?) Since Overstreet has never been online that would take freaking forever. Do they still publish that? The Pinterest board has some weird ones that I've never heard of. Thanks for all the suggestions.

Man-Bat - That's the issue that I immediately thought about.

Cover Swipe List

Amazing Spider-man #306 (1988)
Spawn #228

Justice Society of America #8
Superman #201 (2004)

Fantastic Four 291. It's reversed, but clearly a swipe.

was just trying to speed things up for you. and yes, of course they still make overstreet (I know, you're probably kidding). my thought on that was that MAYBE someone had already gone thru it and made a cover swipe list somewhere on the net, but I didn't find anything quickly that came up with 'overstreet list of...' in the search terms, so maybe there isn't one. wasn't suggesting you go thru it page by page and do it. They put it out in a downloadable version, but I don't know how searchable that is.

good thing I noted the Pinterest board too, as those may not get listed on here by others either. you're welcome, have fun.

Collectibleshop, yeah I was messing with you about Overstreet. As far as I know, the downloadable version isn't searchable. Overstreet should have gone online 20 years ago but if they had we wouldn't be here at ComicsPriceGuide.

Is that all you got? A good start - but I am sure there are a couple of hundred more.

A quick check on Pinterest turns up 74 covers:
The weird and unusual includes: Buffy Comics #8 (Dark Horse), Popeye #1 (IDW 2012), Superman 2099 #136, Nodwick #8 (Dork Tower), and Regular Show #1 (Kaboom). Need I go on??? It's ridiculous!!! Here is my favorite. I would post picture on CPG but rules prevent it. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/519321400757487688 smile

This was done with minimal effort. I am sure you can find more.

R,

Great idea! I return from traveling next week. I will take a pic of all of them in one photo and send them your way for the Action Comics #1 Tribute Blog.

Colbalt91,

Thanks! I added that to my list to collect. I noticed that they now have two 'Action Comics #1' tribute covers. Uber #3 (adult comic book) was released February of 2017 and today they have Uber Invasion #2.

That's awesome! I looked and looked for the Underdog cover at several LCS and couldn't find it.

Ronbatman,

I called my LCS and they too cannot order Underdog #1 anymore. However, I saw it sold on Ebay if you are wanting to purchase one. I am also ordering Sensation Comics #51 (w/Wonder Woman), Secret Origins #1 (Vol. 3, 1986), and the two variants of Spawn #228 (Todd McFarlane). I'm slowly but surely adding to my collection ... I will have them all one day ... to include the original Action Comics #1 ... Bwhahaha!

What have you collected so far?

Honestly, I have no idea what I have. I buy stuff all the time and then forget to add it to my collection. (even though I work at CPG) It's a shame. I don't have Underdog #1 with that cover.
