I knew I'd seen that somewhere before! It took a day to remember.

You guys probably figured it out right away.

I did, but being into comics for as long as I have makes familiarity with certain covers almost natural. I sent the image to a friend (also into comics) who thought it was interesting, and assumed it was more recent than 1991 (I did too). It got me thinking though ... how many kids (or adults) that read Donald Duck comics actually would catch the swipe from Mad? I doubt many younger readers have any idea. But, it's a fun cover for those of us who know the origins.

Mighty Mouse had some swipes in the same era as the Donald book

Reading that price box on Mighty Mouse #1 is hilarious.

I'm not a Darkwing Duck fan but I had to pick this cover up at SDCC back in 2010.

I must be old. My comics were 50 cents with a ton of back issues at a quarter.

I don't recognize Mighty Mouse 5 or Darkwing Duck 7. Are those also classic covers?

I was an 80s comic reader. I bought Dark Knight Returns and Killing Joke off the racks.

I'm surprised you aren't familiar with the Darkwing 7 source.

I've always gotten a good laugh over this Transformers cover homage:




The camera Megatron is holding is another Decepticon called Reflector, that turns into a camera. (Actually three robots that turn into one camera; it's kind of an obscure character that was only used sparingly in the cartoon.)

I remember seeing that Aunt May figure.

I'm baffled by how that even got approved in the first place. And what did any rejected ones look like?
