Cover Homage Fun For 6/1

This is a very unique cover homage.

It is because the original cover is, in and of itself, an homage ITSELF.

George Perez's cover to Crisis on Infinite Earths #7 is an homage of the famous sculpture, the Pieta, by Michelangelo.

However, THIS SPECIFIC cover has been homaged quite a few times, and not just the standard Pieta pose (which I'm sure I'll get around to featuring some day as well).

So here are covers that are not just Pieta covers, but homages of specifically Crisis #7.

Here is a Mighty Mouse homage..

I think this cover probably has the most obscure death in it...

Leading up to Zero Hour, we had this Valor cover...

Nearing the end of the underrated Major Bummer comic (with art by future DC mainstay, Doug Mahnke)...

Tom Strong generally skewed older for its cover homages, but went more recent for this one...

Nearing the end for Supergirl's title as well...

Finally, a funny Toyfare homage...

Feel free to mention any that I might have missed!

Don't forget the one that preceded them all, Uncanny X-Men #136.

Beore the Uncanny X-Men one there was a Kirby Thor cover that had Odin cradling Thor. I did a post like this a year ago that featured more covers that did the whole "crying characters holding dead characters" thing (don't worry I'm not mad or anything). I remember Mars Attacks Image did one.

That Thor issue in question is Thor #127. It's not exactly like the others, in that Odin isn't screaming and crying. But it certainly would be one of the forefathers to all of the other covers lited here.

That Supergirl cover isn't the second homage of Crisis #7 in a PAD book. I don't know which issue of Young Justice, but during Our Worlds at War, there was an interior page with Superboy and...someone in perfect homage of that cover.

Remember, folks, I am acknowledging that the "Pieta" cover has been done a LOT before Crisis # 7.

I'm just mentioning the ones that specifically ape George Perez's version for Crisis #7 (you know, the pile of people in the background).

And yeah, Eliot, during the Our Worlds At War storyline, Young Justice had a good parody, but it was inside the comic, not the cover, and I didn't have the scan...hehe.

I think you should throw in a pic of Michelangelo's "Pieta" so we all know where we're starting from
