The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 87

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 Ed McGuinness and Edgar Delgado’s cover for Nova #17, which is homaging John Byrne’s cover for Sensational She-Hulk #1

If you somehow don’t see the obvious homage there, feel free to substitute a different homage cover for this week, such as Dean Rankine’s cover for Itty Bitty Bunnies In Rainbow Pixie Candy Land #1.

Eighty-seven weeks down! Will we make it to week eighty-eight?


Byrne was referencing a famous National Lampoon cover. I’m surprised you folks missed that.

Is Nova wearing a skirt?

I guess it beats questioning whether or not it’s an homage.

On that She-Hulk cover, is there a coloring error? In the trade paperback, the triangular portion of her costume on the neck and shoulders is yellow. Here it’s colored almost indistinguishably from her skin.

Welcome aboard Mr Ryan.
