Here are a few more of the much-homaged 141:









And a reversal of title characters (and titles):

Don't forget that JB's cover to NAMOR #1 emulates his picture in MOS
#1 and the cover of AVEBGERS WEST COAST #50.

The sheer number of "After Byrnes" is mind-boggling. 

Who else gets "homaged" this much? George Perez? Neal Adams? Probably not even them.

Would Uncanny X-Men #141 be the comic with most homages ever?

Impressive, although not surprising. That is a mindblowing piece of art to this day!

If I correctly recall, JB has said that it was Ed Hannigan who provided the cover
sketch that "inspired" the cover of X-MEN #141. That said, I still believe that it
is JB's art that makes the cover so memorable. Had another less talented artist
drawn the same cover, it would not have become as popular as it has or been
so frequently "homaged."

Valmor, UNCANNY X-MEN #141 would certainly be in the running for most homages ever, along with UNCANNY-X-MEN #136, and ACTION COMICS #1.

I find it interesting how so many of these covers have no action or no villains. That may explain why there are so many homages.

I'd say Kirby gets the most homages, both for FF#1 and Amazing Fantasy 15 among others.

Daredevil #1 has a lot of homages, but I don't remember who drew it.

Daredevil #1 is an assemblage of images from the interior of the comic, with the art done primarily by Bill Everett, likely over layouts by Kirby.

And DARK HORSE PRESENTS did an homage cover with Sin City and JBNM based on that Daredevil cover.

I like the commentary on DC's New 52 laced throughout this one...

The recent Daredevil lenticular cover is an homage to X-Men #135, which is in itself an homage to X-Men #56.

I know it's not the point of the thread, but that
Daredevil cover...well drawn, I guess (I'm no expert),
but there's just no sense of weight, no dynamism or
sense of movement. Kingpin seems to be just sort of
hanging there.

Interesting that a couple of those wanted poster homages credit "Byrne and Austin", even tho the inker made no attempt to emulate Terry's style.

And, as I've noted many a time, the attribution in any case should be to Ed Hannigan, since it was he, as I recall, who did the original sketch.

Poor choice for that STEED AND MRS PEEL cover. Way too much empty space.
