The Jaws influence on Cover art (1970s - )

and these are a selection of comic book cover art inspired by that original image (see below). You will notice the recently solicited 'Deadpool Merc With A Mouth' cover, and also from the last 18 months the XXXombies cover from Image Comics. Going further back in time you have Action comic, who had Hook Jaw as a Jaws inspired Character, and the Jaws 2 comic serialization and the (inevitable) Mad magazine parody;

Six years late I know, but don't forget "Gums" on Monster Fun comic! The first comic I ever bought regularly. Unforgettable.
