Plagiarism?

 

Yesterday, my mother was joking around with me when she saw this cover to a plumbing magazine called Angie’s List.

Something about the artwork seemed familiar to me, and then it hit me:

This is from the last page of Infinite Crisis #1, with pencils by Phil Jimenez. Now, it’s entirely possible that the artist just used the original art for a reference when they drew it, but looking at the inking lines, the sizes and proportions, and the like it seems to be awfully close to the original art.

We’re asking Angie’s List for a comment, but none so far. Think I should e-mail DC or Phil Jimenez?
