The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 95

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!

Oops, forgot to put this up yesterday. Oh well, let me get it up quickly before this week’s books come out!

We’ll go with Sean Chen’s cover for Harbinger #25, which is homaging David Lapham and Bob Layton’s cover for the first issue of the original Harbinger series back in 1992

Ninety-five weeks down! Will we make it to week ninety-six?


Love the license plates.

Even with more modern coloring you can still see how Chen was part of the original Valiant “house style”. And boy, were those ads annoying when they tried denying a “house style”!

That’s some really fine car art. Some struggle with technological depictions but those are pretty spot on without looking too photo referenced.
