Swipe File: Envy Of The Seven Deadly Sins And The Dream Thief From Abadazad

Envy_0

I think it’s fairly possible that we’ll get a Seven Deadly Sins #1 comic from DC in September, at least according to this DC blog post promoting their appearance in Justice League.

But it’s also been pointed out that Ency bears quite a resemblance to The Dream Thief… no, not the new Dark Horse comic, but a character from the Abadazad comic..

I should have more in Villains’ Month later this weekend.

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.
