An Homage is just a call back to the original so no it's usually just the basic setup redrawn anew. With Recreations there are two ways to do them. Copy the entire thing with logo or other design elements or not and theres the copy just a section of the original and either give credit or not. The section way seems kinda funky but it's done a lot. The cover recreations were done because we were kinda sorta in a round about way encouraged or asked to do so, at least for Bronze age. My other recreations were just me seeing if I could recreate something fairly large at the card scale with all the details. As I've stated before, I don't care what collector want from the pack insert cards, I draw what I want to do. For commissions or stuff like that that's different. If I don't like or have any interest in doing the cards i wouldn't do them. So I have to please myself first, collectors, not my focus.
Doing 1 or 10 is just us having a bit o fun, 100 is lazy, uncreative, not trusting in your skills.

Oh and Monkee that Jezreal guy is on the Superman set. So so much for having rules and restrictions eh. Lak had a poll on SCF about what bugs us about card companies and the Rules Restrictions violations was one that got a lot of response.

The invites went out long before the issue came to light... the telling thing would be if he's on the next set after.

Definitely one of the better sketches I've seen from this release

Just use scotch tape, it's a squirrel girl card - won't affect the value

j/k, I saw that one pop up on ebay and figured you'd be getting it

I actually enjoy the space in between, it lets me see inside her head.

Mohd is the one artist I wish I had kept when I was doing non-sport, she does such beautiful work. Pack pulled all of these myself:

Here's another "winner" from the set...



It's "No-Neck" Cyclops versus "Look at my Crotch" Magneto!

I'll admit, I am watching the auction, I would LOVE to have this one in my collection!

Thanks. I rarely check that site anymore, and when I do I mostly stick to the small press stuff anyway.
