Remake: Amazing Heroes #67 / Secret Wars II #1

Title: Amazing Heroes #67Title: Secret Wars II #1
Publisher: FantagraphicsPublisher: Marvel Comics
Cover date: 1985Cover date: 1985
Artist: Sal BuscemaArtist: John Byrne

To explain this remake, I yield the floor to John Byrne:

"Sal Buscema drew [the Secret Wars II cover] originally, but Shooter found fault with his version and called me in to do a "better one". I took one look at Sal's and drew exactly the same thing, just in my own style."

Later, Fantagraphics used the rejected illustration for the Amazing Heroes cover, which was published one month before Secret Wars II #1.
