The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 36

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’ll go with Arthur Suydam’s cover for X-Men #1, which homages the Beatles’ Abbey Road.

Thirty-six weeks down! Will we make it to week thirty-seven?

Deadpool AND zombie covers are still something they do? They get a two for one when they come together like that, but oh darling, please let it be the end of these. I guess they still carry that weight with collectors, because they wouldn’t keep doing them. It’s like Marvel is saying to us that you never give me your money, I want you to.

The end.

Unless I should work in a bit about how the Superior Spider-Man should be shown with a hoe in the Octopus’s garden?

Stop those bad references before I bring a silver hammer down upon your head.

Oh! Oh! Uh…Her Majesty?

I long for yesterday.

I hadn’t read any of these comments then.

Gentlemen, let’s not fight over this! Can’t we all just come together?

Is there some hidden hint on that cover suggesting one of them is dead?

Something in the way this looks, attracts me like no other cover.

This zombie plot is just a conspiracy by those two new villains, Mr. Mustard and Polythene Pam.

Don’t forget the Sun King, and that with the case of Polythene Pam, she came in through the bathroom window, because all three will plan to bring about golden slumbers on all of us…

Dang you Ginocchio!!!!! I was going to write that!


“And in the end the money you take is equal to the covers you make”?

that’s all I got : (
