The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 93

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’s cover for Betty and Veronica #271, which is homaging the iconic scene from Seven Year Itch where Marilyn Monroe is standing over a subway grate when the wind from a passing train blows her dress up.

Ninety-three weeks down! Will we make it to week ninety-four?

I had to look for quite a bit to make sure this was actually an homage.

I’m still not sure. Let me look some more.

What exactly is making their skirts fly up? There doesn’t seem to be anything underneath that wind would come up from.

Archie is off-panel with a leaf blower.

I think the two of them are… you know…enjoying themselves. No wonder they look so blissful.

I figure they both overindulged in Betty’s famous bean dip.
