The Great Comic Book Homage Streak Refuses to Slow Down!

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? The streak began on September 27, 2012. I last checked in with the streak back at the end of June, so there are roughly four months' worth of cover homages to take a look at!

Week 301 was Larry Stroman's cover for Multiple Man #1, which homaged Jack Kirby's cover for Avengers #16.

Week 302 was Russell Dauterman's cover for Death of the Inhumans #5, which homaged Frank Miller and Klaus Janson's cover for Daredevil #182.

Week 303 was Peter Krause's cover for Archie #32, which homaged the album cover of The Beatles' Abbey Road.

Week 304 was Robbi Rodriguez's cover for Spider-Gwen #34, which homaged Rodriguez's own cover for Edge of Spider-Verse #2.

Week 305 was Jay Anacleto's cover for Marvel Two-in-One #8, which homaged Grant Wood's painting, American Gothic.

Week 306 was Audrey Mok cover for Go Go Power Rangers #12, which homaged the movie poster for The Goonies..

Week 307 was John Cassaday's cover for Fantastic Four #1, which homaged Jack Kirby's cover for Fantastic Four #51.
