First up this time around, it's Sgt. Fury #48, and the reprint in issue #143! OK, is it just me, or does this look like it's been retouched a bit for the reprint? I mean, sure, there's coloring variations, and it did get shrunken down a bit to accommodate the new logo... but some of the details -- thickened lines and so forth -- aren't so easily accounted for by that.
Next, Amazing Spider-MAn #26, and Marvel Tales #21! You'll of course immediately notice that the Green Goblin's been relocated to the other side of the cover, but also the image has been shifted up, and new art added to the bottom! This is rather unusual, to have the art shifted up, eh? Note also how the coloring changes it from a daytime to a nighttime scene.
Next, Avengers #39 and Marvel Triple Action #31... The art's definitely been shrunken and more added to the left... but check out Hercules' left foot -- was that just cropped, or did his foot position get changed? Kind of hard to tell with the UPC code.
Finally, here's Daredevil #4, and Marvel Super-Heroes #24 -- aside from the blurb changes, it doesn't look like anything's been changed to me -- even Karen's dress is the same color, more or less! Looks like some finer details dropped out in the reprint.
