The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 6

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!

This week, we’ll go with Les McClaine’s cover for Tick #101, which is homaging Jack Kirby, Chic Stone and Wally Wood’s cover for Fantastic Four #39 (Wood inked Daredevil and Stone inked the rest of the cover). Thanks to Les McClaine for confirming that it was, indeed, an homage to the Fantastic Four cover!

Six weeks down! Will we make it to week seven?
