...I answered my own question.  If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, for the artists that mimic themselves.  And copying is the sincerest form of flattery for those that were “inspired” by someone else.  I guess it’s all over the place without having to look too hard.  Thanks for entertaining my naïveté...77AEE9AF-BD5E-41BE-8022-4A436B1A2CE0.thumb.png.cc00466e3ea6e3edd388d90a01ded269.png

You will see tons of this.  I know there has been a discussion here somewhere of all the pulp cover swipes.  There are several and the Planet 58 is the clearest one.

Fiction House in particular is known for reusing pulp cover compositions. What's fun is finding pulp cover swipes where you wouldn't expect them, like Jimmy Olsen.

You should expect them.  Mort Weisinger was the editor for Superman related titles.

" Weisinger moved on; he took a job with the Standard Magazine chain, publisher of a range of pulp magazines. Standard had acquired writer-publisher Hugo Gernsback's defunct Wonder Stories and added it to Standard series of "Thrilling" publications (Thrilling Detective, Thrilling Western, and others). Weisinger became the editor of Thrilling Wonder Stories,[4] and bought stories by Hamilton and others from his former partner Schwartz. Weisinger was soon editing a range of other pulps by Standard, including Startling Stories and Captain Future, and "was in charge of no fewer than 40 titles" by 1940"

Got this done last week. Found a cover for sale and had to press a spine roll out of my coverless but the finished  product looks pretty good I think.

1st female hero in comics!   Hawkgirl!   Actually, Owl Girl, a few months earlier.   But the first one that stood the test of time!
