The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 50

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 Jeff Shultz’ cover for the Archie #647, which is homaging Rockwell’s 1984 debut single “Somebody’s Watching Me.”

Fifty weeks down! Will we make it to week fifty-one?


The comments for this one from people who don’t click the link should be fun.

It’s pretty clearly an homage to the cover of this book of Mad Magazine art by Mark Evanier. http://www.amazon.com/Mad-Art-Visual-Celebration-Magazine/dp/0823030806

Woah, the streak has almost made it to a year!

Ha ! Glad I followed your link. That’s brightened up an otherwise absolute pig of a Monday.

Woah, the streak has almost made it to a year!

Crazy, right? It’ll be fascinating to see when it will end.

I am sorry I missed this one when it came out. Hasn’t anyone ever seen Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post cover titled “Self Portrait”?

And Michael MacArthur wins the prize.
