What is PANINI COMICS? Is it a Company for all Europe with Marvel reprint rights? --And they hire someone to draw new repackaging covers? Dare one say 'better' covers in some cases? Can anyone say if these are original art images? Or are they all reprint from other mainstream USA Marvel covers? are they all reprint from other mainstream USA Marvel covers?

Panini is an Italian publisher, which has purchased Marvel comics reprint rights worldwide. This was done as part of Marvel's effort to recover from bankruptcy that it fell in the 1990s.
For example, here in Brazil, the Marvel material has been reprinted for over 20 years by a publisher called Abril, until their licensing agreement expired in December 2001. So, from January 2002, Panini Comics started publishing these titles here. Currently, Panini publishes the regular Marvel material and another publisher named Saraiva, publishes, with Panini's permission, TPBs with classic material such as the Micheline / Layton Iron Man runs for example.
