    Default Cover Contest: April 25th to May 1st

    Okay, here is a simple one that should be a fun change of pace.

    Painted adventure comic covers from Dell/Western/Gold Key.

    Growing up I was mostly about Marvel and DC but I used to check out a Gold Key book every so often. Always because of the exquisite painted covers, even though the insides never lived up to the cover.

    So that's what this week's is about. Painted covers from Dell/Western/Gold Key.



    Boilerplate follows.

    THE RULES:
    1) Post One (& ONLY ONE) Cover that fits the theme of this Week's Contest!
    2) Cover must be from a Published Comic Book or Collected Volume!
    3) Covers must be Posted before Voting Begins!
    4) Voting Begins 12 AM Tuesday and Runs Until 12 AM Wednesday PST (3 AM EST)!
    5) Vote by Posting the name in BOLD of the Poster whose cover best fits the theme or that you simply like the most! A vote need not be in bold, but it does make it easier to Count-The-Votes!
    6) The Winner of the Contest is the Entry with the MOST Votes after the Voting-Period!
    7) It's Okay to Discuss the Covers but if you Think Someone's Entry Doesn't Fit the Theme or Violates the Rules, you Don't need to Argue it in the thread, Simply Don't Vote for It!
    8) Plus: Occasionally Voting will Result in a Tie! The Person Who Started the Thread will do the Counting that Week will Usually call for a TIE-Breaking --Vote from Someone who has Not Yet Voted!
    9) AFTER the Tie-Breaker Vote, Voting Ends and the Winner is Declared by The One Who Started the Thread (or assigned surrogate) and Thus will do the Counting.
    You can find a bunch of books I wrote stories for here. The weekly column is here.

    In the news and on social media all you hear these days is 'Witch Hunt'. Though the creepy, ghostly Barnabas Collins added to the reason I chose this one.

    Great contest Greg! I will just have to see which Jesse Santos cover I want to post.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Not an entry of course because it's not a painted cover (I wish), but a cover featuring Emma Peel deserves some views!

    I can't deny the impact Emma Peel had on this franchise, but Dr. Cathy Gale needs more love.
