In this feature, I spotlight comic book covers that follow a specific theme. Here is an archive of all the cover themes we’ve spotlighted so far.


Joe Shuster’s cover for Action Comics #1, featuring the first appearance of Superman, is one of the most famous covers in comic book history, and as a result, it has been one of the most homaged covers in comic history. Here are 25 of them!
