    I'm surprised this one hasn't been mentioned yet--



    Along with this one--




    Resulting in covers like this--

    "Saying goodbye to friends, saying goodbye to loneliness.
    I'm on my way to Rio, the place where I wanna be.
    You know that I soon will leave, so don't try to make me stay.
    I'm on my way to Rio, I'm coming back some day."
    --Maywood (1980)

    I'm sure there are others I haven't seen as well.

    What are some other iconic covers that get repeatedly referenced or imitated in tribute? I'll post some more.
    I actually think the last two are actually tributes to Crisis on Infinite Earths #7, but definitely a cool idea for a thread. I really like it when comic artists decide to draw homages to some of the classic covers of yore.

    Yeah, the cover for that A DEATH IN THE FAMILY collection is really one case where the artist is directly referencing the Pieta.



    Whereas, other so-called pieta covers--including COIE--are referencing pre-existing pieta covers which ultimately take their influence from the Pieta. Cover artist extraordinaire Alex Schomburg did a few different pieta covers in his illustrious career, including these--

    Can a cover have a character carrying a dead/unconscious person with both arms with the body facing upward without it being a reference to the Pieta?
    For the love of God, people, just put "In my opinion..." at the beginning of your posts so that we can stop wasting bandwidth arguing about whether someone was trying to express a fact or not.

    IMO, unless it's staged in the same exact way as that famous piece of sculpture, I would say yes.

    I would agree, it's a fairly specific pose.
