SENTINELS #5 (17 Dec 2014)

Although I couldn't find the signature for the usually with "After Perez", I believe this Luciano Vecchio and Ihor Loboda cover artwork on SENTINELS #5 (17 Dec 2014) may have been inspired by George Perez's cover to COMICS INTERVIEW #6 (Aug 1983) Fictioneer (the original JLA/Avengers cover).

If I am wrong, please let me know - sometime artists may not know (whether intentionally or otherwise) that they are drawing similar designs (in the case of Perez's own Crisis/X-Men cover debate).

Sentinels' creator Rich Bernatovech is a big fan of George Perez and previously published Perez pinups in SENTINELS #1: FOOTSTEPS (Dec 2003) and SENTINELS #3: ECHOES (Nov 2005).

(Update: Confirmed - cover is an homage to George Perez).
