    Well, they all have vaginas.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    I don’t see a strong connection between these two covers. One looks like a police lineup, the other looks like an ambush.

  7. 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.

  11. The Beat says:

    Well, that joke fell flat.

  12. michael says:

    quite possibly the WORST comparison I’ve ever seen…and an insult to the Hernandez bros.

  13. Y’alls a bunch of wet blankets.

    I laughed.

  14. GTPodcast says:

    You might as well have accused both of them of ripping off the album cover of “Band on the Run”…

  15. I thought it was funny, Heidi!
