Was Alex Ross The Inspiration Behind The Cover to The Boys #72?

We know Darick Robertson is not above doing the occasional dark homage for certain covers of The Boys. Now when I look at the newly released cover for what will be the last issue…


I see similarities to an old, obscure cover to The Comics Journal #223 by Alex Ross.


Maybe issue #72 is an homage to be above Ross piece. If Frank Quitely and Frank Miller are fair game, then so is Ross.

Am I on to something, or am I totally off base with this one? Let me know.
