The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 15

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!

This week is a unique situation. Rather than picking just one cover, I’m picking two, just because the circumstances are unusual. Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood had its 75th issue this week. The issue had a number of covers. Liefeld used two of them to homage Youngblood #1, which was a flipbook with TWO covers. So here are the two covers.

The first is drawn by Rob Liefeld and Mike Cappriotti and it homages the first cover of Youngblood #1 by Rob Liefeld

The second is drawn by Rob Liefeld and Todd McFarlane and it homages the other cover of Youngblood #1 by Rob Liefeld

Fifteen weeks down! Will we make it to week sixteen? Find out!
