Uncanny X-Men 141

Back to Marvel this week with a book that most collectors know about, Uncanny X-Men 141. This is the beginning of the Days of Future Past storyline in which we see what might happen in the future to that special part of the population born with the mutant X-gene. The results aren’t the best for the X-Men and mutants in general but this is one of the more popular storylines in X-Men lore. The cover to 141 was also pretty popular and spawned some pretty creative cover swipes.

If this cover doesn’t make you want to find out what happens in the pages of this book, I don’t know what will.  Why does Wolverine look so old?  Why are his X-Men teammates on the poster behind him listed as “Slain”??  One of John Byrne’s finest works.

Cheshire doesn’t seem to be a big fan of the Teen Titans…

Superboy v4 #27

Another DC homage with Superboy and Knockout.  Do the rival comic companies need to ask permission to copy covers?

Sad to say but I have never heard of this series.  Kind of cool to see all the image heroes in the poster on the wall.

Proof that homage covers sell?  I picked this issue of Alpha Flight up striclty because of the cover.  A sucker and his money are soon parted!

Love this one.  Not a Star Trek fan but love the way it looks exactly like Uncanny 141.  I would buy this if I stumbled across it in a shop.

Seems like Deadpool is not only a copy of Deathstroke but likes to copy covers as well.

The Super-Hero Squad variant to this issue looks great in my opinion!

Darkwing Duck #12

Another Darkwing Duck cover has been brought up in a few people’s hauls recently.  Looking on the internet, it seems like a lot of the covers from this Darkwing Duck series were homages to other famous covers.

There were plenty more homages to Uncanny X-Men 141 but these were my favorites…if you don’t like them write your own damn article!

Last but not least…I found another homage to Amazing Spider-Man 300 today digging through the bins:
