The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 19

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!

This week we feature Todd McFarlane’s Spawn #227 cover, homaging his own cover for Amazing Spider-Man #300.

Nineteen weeks down! Will we make it to week twenty (and if so, will there be a sense of deja vu after this week)? Find out!

Humberto Ramos’ cover for the 2nd printing of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700 also homaged ASM #300.

I’m not sure you should allow people homaging themselves in this list.

I was taught that homaging yourself makes you go blind.

I know I am going to get a lot of flack for saying this, but, the one problem I had with Spawn is that he did not look like a demon from hell to me. He looked like Spider-Man in a black suit. And, this cover just solidifies my opinion.

I agree with you. MacFarlane’s style could never portray a demon look for Spawn.
Imagine if someone with the artistic chops of a Mike Mignola, for instance, had designed Spawn…

The only flack I can give for that statement is that I can’t imagine having only one problem with Spawn.

McFarlane homaged himself on the previous issue’s cover, too.

When he thinks about himself, he homages himself.

At least a demon contorting his body like that kinda makes sense. An actual human being, not so much.

homage? it’s Disgusting.

DAMN there are a lot of water towers in the background.

Any idea of what they mean with “special 227th anniversary issue”?

Just a joke.

Yeah, the original (linked above) was a “special 25th anniversary issue” with “300″ printed all over the background. Since this happens to be issue #227, he just went with it.

MonikerNV: That’s because water towers are … advantageous.

They let you…

RISE ABOVE IT ALL!!!

The cover of this week’s 2000ad is a pretty sweet homage by Boo Cook. http://2000ad.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/2000ad-1817-boo-cook-strontium-dog.jpg?w=627
