I think the Mad Love cover and story have made it into classic territory at this point :thumbup:

I know the site Comic Vine, but I hadn't seen that page.  It's not uncommon knowledge in the comic world though.  

Probably the first homage I recognized as such was the Giant Size X-Men 1.  I had X-Men annual 10, around age 11, and was delighted by it.  And the whole "busting through" motif appears often enough, though half the time in X-Men connected books.  The Deadly Genisis one was the last one I spotted.  That story was heavy in X-Men continuity too, so it felt appropriate.

The Spider-Man one they have is poorly written! :laugh:  Jack Kirby drew it, and they missed the most famous homage to it in their list!

The Action Comics covers I don't know, except Spider-Man #306, which I bought when it came out, and if you look in the corner, he credits the original artists.  True homages, and not just swipes, should credit the original artist.

Scrolling through that page though, there are a number of classic, iconic covers not yet posted.  Comic Vine is decent as a comics encyclopedia, and a good place to whittle away your time.  I actually prefer the writing at Comic Book Resources though, and they have more than enough articles on covers to keep those interested busy :thumbup: :

Did I review your Academy review and you've waited more than three days for a follow up after you fixed it?  PM me.  I'll get it done.

I am a Satanist and not ashamed.

Yeah, I mean we're getting a D2C set based on it after all! :laugh:

Thanks, I might check CBR out some time.
