A classic LOVE AND ROCKETS cover.
The cover to the second issue of Titan’s WWE comic.
Well, they all have vaginas.
The connection being the circle?
I always read that L&R cover as the characters in a police line-up. Shots of characters in a circular gunsight image aren’t that uncommon in comics history.
Though the first LIBERTY PROJECT cover, which did have a brick-wall background like that WWE cover, was definitely inspired by the earliest version of that L&R cover:
So go figure.
Little bit of a stretch on this one, unfortunately. :)
If anything, based on the light, cluttered wall and HHH’s hand position I would say it’s separated from X-Men 141, the Days of Future Past cover.
A few more ‘caught in the spotlight’ moments…
I don’t see a strong connection between these two covers. One looks like a police lineup, the other looks like an ambush.
The characters in the second one have bigger tits.
i have trouble thinking that anyone involved with the wrestling comic has read L&R.
how does it stack up against the wrestling stories in Love and Rockets?
Look at HHH’s ludicrous outfit! I am disgusted by your coverage of such objectification of men. It makes me feel icky! ;-)
Wow. Slow news day?? Are you implying the artist of the WWE cover copied the L&R cover?! Come on, the “circular spotlight against the wall” design has been used a million times over. the Hernandez Bros are great artists, but I doubt they pioneered this design sensibility.
Please leave this junk to Rich “Leach” Johnston. Heidi, you don’t have to dig that deep in the mud for a post. Or if you do, please make it of something significant.
Well, that joke fell flat.
quite possibly the WORST comparison I’ve ever seen…and an insult to the Hernandez bros.
Y’alls a bunch of wet blankets.
You might as well have accused both of them of ripping off the album cover of “Band on the Run”…
I thought it was funny, Heidi!
