Swipe File: Fear Itself Vs Monster Hunter III

Posted by April 7, 2011 Comment

A few people reading the first issue of Fear Itself found them suffering a little deja vu when seeing the sea dragon demony serpent things that Sin summoned, in her new godly identity of Skadi.

That’s them. Are they just generic serpents? Or are the insidpred by too much late night playing of the Wii game Monster Hunter Tri? Specifically the levels with the Lagiacrus?

Only you can decide!

Relentless. Eternal. Busted?

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.
