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!
Amusingly enough, this week was actually going to be without a Marvel hip hop cover, but then Marvel screwed up and shipped a few titles early, including the comic that we'll go with for this week, Khary Randolph's cover for Rocket Raccoon and Groot #1, which is homaging the album cover for Run DMC's King of Rock.
One hundred and seventy-one weeks down! Will we hit one hundred and seventy-two?
