Greg Rucka's series is a homage/update of British spy series Queen And Country .
The Sandbaggers The Metabarons is heavily inspired by and can be seen as a Spiritual Successor to . The Shabda-Oud are the Bene Gesserit devoid of any concern for humanity's growth or future, the Technopriests are the Harkonnen with heavy doses of the Tleilaxu, and the Metabarons themselves are the Atreides with even more tragedy.
Dune The Justice League of America is quite open about being inspired (both in the comics and in real life) by the Justice Society of America.
Jack Kirby's series was heavily inspired by concepts Kirby had laid out earlier in his run on New Gods . In fact, as The Mighty Thor Cracked points out, Kirby purposefully laid down some strong hints that New Gods was in fact a Stealth Sequel to his Thor run!
He did it again later with the creator-owned "Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers", where the Captain's father is clearly Orion, and he fights his villainous disembodied grandfather Blackmass.
Johnathan Hickman's picks up on a lot of the similar thematic elements that were explored in S.H.I.E.L.D. Warren Ellis' .
Planetary Secret Six to the Suicide Squad. After DC Reboot, the Suicide Squad reboot replaced the Secret Six, making this go full circle.
When comparing the initial premises, you can see that second volume of is one for Young Avengers - in both we have group of superpowered teenagers on the run, who cannot count on help from their parents (in Runaways because Runaways their parents are the bad guys and in Young Avengers because ) and both series explore relationships between kids in their late teens. Also, in both groups one of the kids The Big Bad can easily mind control adults to kill them is secretly evil.
: Its style was widely imitated in the European comic strips scene. Especially the work of Edgar P. Jacobs ( Tintin Blake and Mortimer) and Bob De Moor show this. Not surprisingly, both artists worked as assistants to Hergé.
A lot of comic strip authors for the Belgian comics magazine "Spirou" had a very similar looking style, inspired by André Franquin. They were even nicknamed "The School of Marcinelle".
Suske en Wiske: In terms of commercial success, comedy and word play De Kiekeboes is probably the closest.
Nero: In terms of drawing style, black comedy and surrealistic stories in a Flemish setting Urbanus is the spiritual successor.
Bryan Lee O'Malley's is one for his previous book, Seconds , with the emphasis on zany humor and characters and a very Scott Pilgrim Animesque art style.
Peter David's is one for his Fallen Angel run, so much so that the heroine was initially hinted to be Linda Danvers (Supergirl's civilian identity) under an assumed name. This connection was abandoned when the series changed publishers.
