Films & Television Homaged as Comics

Pop culture, the general medium of entertainment, pervades modern cultures around the world. Comics and films — both live action and animated — bring fantastic stories to life or global audiences every day like no other medium. It is only natural that comics would homage classic and popular movies.

A movie homage usually mimics a movie poster, which like comics may be highly collectable. A movie poster homage is typically one-and-done. Few are done as a series or an extended, planned event. There are exceptions to this rule, however. DC Comics, for example, published movie poster homages for several months in the spring of 2015 for all of their titles at the time. Some popular films, such as Star Wars, are frequently homaged.

Not all movie homages take the likeness of a movie poster, on the other hand. Some motion picture homages use the likeness of popular and/or well-known characters, such as the characters from Archie, Scooby-Doo or Bewitched. Others borrow a memorable scene, such as the scene from The Shining in which Jack Nicholson has broken through a door with an axe and says, “Heeeeeeerrre’s Johnny!”
