This list is also part of my "Arms of Another" series.

Cover homages to Michelangelo's Pieta in chronological order. But first, the original...

Pieta, by Michelangelo

Reviews I have read say that Michaelangelo's statue, "Pieta" (the Madonna holding the body of the Christ; sculpted in 1499), is the inspiration for covers like X-Men #136 and Crisis on Infinite Earths #7. I don't know - the pose is definitely similar, with the arm hanging down, and head pointed to the left, but she's sitting down. On most of the covers like X-Men or Crisis, the one holding the body is standing.

However, there are some covers that are definitely based on the Pieta. So this list will be limited to those covers.

What is "Arms of Another?"
