Spiritual Successor: Comicbooks
  • Greg Rucka's Queen And Country series is a homage/update of British spy series The Sandbaggers.
  • The Metabarons is heavily inspired by and can be seen as a Spiritual Successor to Dune. 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.
  • 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.
  • Johnathan Hickman's S.H.I.E.L.D. picks up on a lot of the similar thematic elements that were explored in 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 Young Avengers is one for Runaways - in both we have group of superpowered teenagers on the run, who cannot count on help from their parents (in Runaways because their parents are the bad guys and in Young Avengers because The Big Bad can easily mind control adults to kill them) and both series explore relationships between kids in their late teens. Also, in both groups one of the kids is secretly evil.
  • Tintin: Its style was widely imitated in the European comic strips scene. Especially the work of Edgar P. Jacobs (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 Seconds is one for his previous book, Scott Pilgrim, with the emphasis on zany humor and characters and a very Animesque art style.
