Looks like the Thor above Rom is this one, dated February 83:

Thor #328

...but above that is Blade Runner 1 (October 82), and in the next column over it looks like Thor 372 (October 86).  According to IMDB filming was done 6 August 1986 - 8 November 1986, so that would make sense.  Looks like just random early-mid 80s issues were used.

 

your picture did not show up

that was the impression I got as well.

Some film makers are super into the tiniest details. I think we saw that in the series "11-22-63", while others are simply going for a look and not picky-- plenty of examples of that in this thread.

From what I've read its the set designer that has a bunch of stuff or compiles as needed.  Like they might have a big box in their inventory that says 'male teenager bedroom-1950s'

sure-- but some directors get involved or push for something to be as authentic as possible to the point of OCD

I tend to find those movies to be the better ones often since that type of obsession over every aspect can truly add to the experience. Not that Robocop wasn't fun or that these minor details of what books are on a comic (really a magazine) rack are seen all that long typically.

Thanks for sharing the pic

You got that right-James Cameron is very hands on making sure everything is just so.  He even left the phone message for Sarah Connor.  He'll be stirring the molten steel, adjusting costumes, everything.

Not sure if these have been mentioned yet, but in Paul the title character can be seen going through a comic book rack of Spawn and various Image comics. Also in Superbad at the party that Jay and Seth are taken to by Frances there's a gigantic Spawn #22 poster behind the door of one of the bedrooms. Couldn't find any pics, sorry.

As a Curt Swan fan happy to see the Beatles were too.  All books except the GL were SWAN with SWAN interiors!

I think this Action Comics #75. Check out some auctions on eBay. The back cover looks like a match.
