The Simpsons (part 2)

Some of the Simpsons swipes below were back covers but they were too good to not show here.

Its amazing how influential this cover has become. A new series of articles by Drew Lujan just highlighted a Bloodshot cover that paid homage to this Spidey cover. If you haven’t read Drew’s series entitled “One Year Later” give it a try. Very informative and interesting stuff presented in each installment.

The Radioactive Man series is full of swipes. Some I still haven’t figured out. This one looked familiar but it took a quick Google search to figure out why.

Not an exact swipe but still an homage to the famous drug issue!

I never knew being pelted by food was part of a super hero’s job description.

The only things I know about being a Communist I learned from Seinfeld. Never name names and always go to Hop Sing’s for Chinese food and scheming.

The next four covers were all the back covers of their respective comics but really great swipes nonetheless.

I believe all the originals were done by Jim Steranko.

I think this one might be the best of the bunch. Of course I love the original as well. You have to be doing some pretty good drugs to decide to draw a superteam on someones face right?

Does nobody else see the awesomeness of this swipe? The Radioactive Man characters are in the exact same pose as the guys on the original! That’s just cool!

I’ll try to get a few more together for next week. Radioactive Man covers seem to all be homages, I just need to figure out to what. Thanks again for reading!
