The Great Comic Book Cover Homage Streak: Week 99

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, I forgot to do this Tuesday. I had this cover picked out quickly last week, too!

This week, we’ll go with Jamie McKelvie’s cover for Nightcrawler #5, which is homaging Paul Smith’s cover for Uncanny X-Men #168.

Ninety-nine weeks down! Will we make it to week one hundred?


I got 99 homages and (mumble mumble) ain’t one.

Sorry, couldn’t think of a good joke.

It’d be awesome if there somehow turned out to not be an homage next week.

Glad I wasn’t the only one who recognized this as a homage cover to the great Paul Smith drawn Uncanny X-Men 168!

I hope it’s called “Professor Wagner Is A Jerk!” :-)
