Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
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 Andrew Pepoy’s cover for Archie #646, which homages Wally Wood’s cover for Weird Science-Fantasy #27. Interestingly enough, this week ALSO had a SEPARATE homage to Weird Science-Fantasy with Paolo Rivera’s cover for Guardians of the Galaxy #5 (likely referring to the same Wood cover as Pepoy).
Forty-five weeks down! Will we make it to week forty-six?
