Comic Books & Classic Images

This one is a very common pair and relatively widely accepted form of homage to another artist.  Comic Books seem to do this more frequently than any other print form.  There are hundreds of these.  Sometimes from images that aren't very old or pay homage to an earlier version of similar subject matters. Some images that come to mind are the first appearances of Spider-man, Batman and Superman.  Those are widely copied.  (I don't like the world copy because of the connotation it evinces, but in this case it doesn't seem to disrespect the works of art.)
