The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 5
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 Chris Burnham’s cover for Batman Incorporated #5, which is homaging the classic Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson pin-up from Detective Comics #352 (it is such a famous image I wouldn’t normally feature it here, but I actually did a post on it a couple of years back, so you can see it here). Thanks to Chris Burnham for confirming that it was, indeed, an homage to the Infantino/Anderson piece!
Five weeks down! Will we make it to week six?
