Comic Book Cover / Splash Page Clones, Part 3

I don't know if there is a proper name for them...splash pages that duplicate or mimic the cover the the comic they appear in. Here are some more that I have noticed....





 Batman #171 (May 1965). Similar POV, different artwork and dialog. Cover by Infantino and Anderson, interior by Bernard Baily.


Wonder Woman #110 (November 1959). Both by Andru and Espositio. Similar POV,WW in different position and princes rotated 180º on her shoulders 


All-Star Comics #31 (October-November 1946). Same art on both, with the odd exception to Hawkman's helmet.  Martin Naydel and Joe Kubert



Our Army at War #89 (December 1959). Cover by  Russ Heath, interior by Jerry Grandenetti. Similar POV, but solider is rotated 180º, and his hair color has changed.




Detective Comics #348 (February 1966). Rotated POV, different hat on baddie. Cover by  Kubert, interior by Moldoff and Giella




Sensation Comics #28 (April 1944). Same situation , yet on cover WW is in her airplane, while on splashpage in on ground. Harry G. Peter drew both.




Metal Men #14 (June-July 1965). Same moment in story, yet slightly different character speech, characters in different positions. Cover by Andru/ Espositio, splash page by Win Mortimer.
