Swipe File: Bleeding Cool and Riding the Gravy Train

Because it's fun being snarky...

Bleeding Cool on Avengers vs. X-Men (10/02/12)

Riding the Gravy Train 25 on Avengers vs. X-Men (10/01/12)

(Or... Riding the Gravy Train 23 on Avengers vs. X-Men (09/16/12) if you prefer... Maybe one or two others.)

[In Swipe File Bleeding Cool presents two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. Bleeding Cool trusts you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself? If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran what eventually became the current Bleeding Cool column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.]
