FANTASTIC FOUR #191 (Feb 1978)
Marvel Comics
I think Humberto Ramos' cover to Champions #18 (released March 28, 2018) is an homage to Fantastic Four #191 (cover by George Perez and Joe Sinnott). What do you think?

Side by side, it looks very familiar, only the 2018 is updated to an iPad vs old fashion newspaper. There is evidence that it is a nod to Perez, as Ramos and Perez are the two artists who announced that they will no longer attend Pro-Trump states (read about it here )

Note: Champions #18 was the last one Ramos worked on, as he inscribed on the cover, translated: "Thank you, Champions, it was an honor."

While you're at it, read George Perez's note to the late Len Wein via this cover artwork here.
