The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 14

by  in Comic News Comment

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? Let’s find out! Here is an archive of all the cover homages featured in the streak so far! I initially planned on skipping last week’s Diamond’s Christmas “skip week,” since only a handful of titles were released, but was there still an homage cover in those handful of comics?

Yep, as it turns out, one of the many covers for Deathmatch #1 from Boom! Studios was an homage! Trevor Hairsine homaged Mike Zeck’s classic cover to the first issue of Marvel Super-Heroes Secret Wars.


Fourteen weeks down! Will we make it to week fifteen? Find out!
