The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 10

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 Giarrusso’s variant cover for Morning Glories #23, homaging Rodin Esquejo’s cover for the first issue of Morning Glories. Giarrusso is doing a series of homages in honor of Image Comics’ 20th Anniversary, so don’t be surprised if you see another one pop up on the homage streak!

Ten weeks down! Will we make it to week eleven?



I think we can all remember where we were when we first saw that Morning Glories cover. A day that will live, um, somewhere.

Homaging itself, how interesting.

I now plan on releasing an ongoing series of a comic where only a small details changes on each cover. Each issue will be more homage-y than the last.

@Oz why stop there? Why not just change small details in each panel? You could make it about alternate universes.

I’ve got you all beat. I’m going to release a series where each issue is just a photocopy of Ghost Rider #15 (the one with the glow-in-the-dark cover) and each subsequent issue has one less page than the one before. Then I’ll sell the “original” artwork to the Lichtenstein estate for millions of dollars.

Guys, stop giving Marvel and DC ideas. Seriously.
