You're excluding the "homage" covers, presumably. There are at least half a dozen Action 1 homages, from later Action Comics itself to the most recent Popeye 1.

 

Where does it say homage covers are excluded? :taptaptap:

 

Hey, it's your thread, so it's your rules. Except reprints don't count. :baiting:

Here's a pair of GK covers. They just seem similar to me. Look at the "featuring.." ; they have almost identical placement on the cover.

 

and both are the same grade...scary!! :o

My Brave & the Bold 29 is a direct steal or tribute to All-Star 43:

Beautiful copy of JLA 29. :applause:

 

 

I have noticed Mystery in Space 59 is similar to Tales of the Unexpected 38.

You're right. The composition is indeed very similar.

 

Editor Julius Schwartz rips off his own Mystery in Space title here:

Oh yeah! The first cover was without question the template for the second. Great copies of two fabulous titles too!

 

Here's a trio of comics where the latter two borrowed the theme from the first:

Oh man, those three are exact shameless steals!

 

Here's another example of Julius Schwartz ripping off his own self:
