The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 43

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 Pere Perez’s cover for Archer and Armstrong #11, which homages the opening title credits of the Brady Bunch.

Forty-three weeks down! Will we make it to week forty-four?

How small press do you go with this column? The tiny stuff, you can hardly go a week without some specific homages, like some of the better-known COIE covers.

If the company solicits through Diamond Comics Distributors, I’ll count it.

Great cover. I know nothing about this title and this would make me pick it up, ergo: job done.

Is that General Douglas MacArthur in the lower right?

Agreed, Dom.

And that is why I think cover homages really work very well quite often. They can sometimes be really attractive covers.

“Is that General Douglas MacArthur in the lower right?”

Yes.

He returned.
