The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 57

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 Ivan Reis and Joe Prado’s cover for Justice League #24, which is homaging Jim Lee and Scott Williams’ cover for Justice League #1

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


I get that the New 52 is really trying for the “instant classic” angle, but the Jim Lee original was really not homage-worthy. It was an uninteresting cover then, and it’s an uninteresting cover now.

So, Aquaman ain’t worth having a negative doppelganger? And DC bought Deathlok?

I think the most uninteresting thing about the cover is the Johns & Reis credit.

@Kabe Aquaman’s doppelgänger “died” and that’s the evil version of firestorm

I think Kabe’s talking about Grid (the evil counterpart to Cyborg), not Deathstorm with the Deathlok (to whom he only bears the most inevitable of resemblance, but certainly more than Deathstorm) comment.
