Artist Nicola Scott cheekily called out Marvel Comics after it was discovered the company used her DC Comics art from Earth 2 #2 on a solicited cover for Marvel Comics #1000.

Here’s a good look at the original collage variant.

The mistake was originally spotted by Twitter user KaleeshArbiter, which features Earth 2’s Green Lantern Alan Scott kissing his partner Sam.

Here’s a look at Nicola Scott’s original page from Earth 2 #2.

The creator of the collage variant cover Mr. Garcin apologized for the mistake and noted he got the picture from the internet.

He would also apologize to Nicola Scott in a similar statement.

Here’s the official description for Marvel Comics #1000:

“THE GREATEST TALENT EVER ASSEMBLED FOR ONE STORY! THIS IS THE BIG ONE! In celebration of Marvel’s 80th Anniversary, we have gathered together the greatest array of talent ever to be assembled between the covers of a single comic book! Names from the past, from the present, and even the future! Every page is filled with all-new work from this cavalcade of comic book luminaries! There is a mystery that threads throughout the Marvel Universe – one that has its origins in MARVEL COMICS #1 and which unites a disparate array of heroes and villains throughout the decades! What is the Eternity Mask, and who is responsible for the conspiracy to keep it hidden? And what new player will make their startling debut as these secrets are peeled away? Featuring the entirety of the Marvel Universe of characters!”

There will be at least 13 different covers including Mr. Garcin’s collage variant. Variant covers will be done by Mike Allred, Mark Bagley, Mark Brooks, Alex Ross, Greg Hildebrandt, Ron Lim, Ed McGuinness, Greg Smallwood, Julian Totino Tedesco, and Skottie Young.

Garcin’s collage variant will also be available in a poster.

It’s unclear if the collage variant will be adjusted by the time it hit comic book shelves.

The book is expected to hit comic book shelves on August 28, 2019.
