It occurs to me that it seems like many comic book covers are homages. Which is fine with me. I have no problem with it. It just made me think, though, how long could I go before I hit a week where NO new comic book was released that had a cover that was an homage to something (if I get that far, I’ll discount the “skip week” Diamond Comics will be having between Christmas and New Years this year)? Let’s find out! Here is an archive of all the cover homages featured in the streak so far!
Sorry for the delay on this week’s homage! I usually do these on Wednesdays, but this past Wednesday I was busy with the 12 most notable #12’s (since it was 12/12/12 last Wednesday). Anyhow, this week, with our first non-comics homage, we’ll go with Joe Quinones’ cover to Dark Avengers #184, referencing the famous Joe Rosenthal photograph, “Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima.”
Twelve weeks down! Will we make it to week thirteen?
