Swipe File: Dan DiDio And Morgan Edge

Some people, including Bleeding Cool, made note of the racebending of bad guy media mogul Morgan Edge in the new Superman comic, switching from a white man to a black man. But is there something we missed? As well as the skin change, he also lost his head hair and gained a little facial fungus.

Here’s the original character.

Here is how he is portrayed by George Perez in Superman #1.

This is the co-publisher of DC Comics, Dan DiDio.

Let’s try a little animation…

Moo hoo ha ha.

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust 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 this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
