    Default Cover Contest Sept. 26th - Oct 2nd; "Marvel-ous" Marie Severin

    We lost an all-time legend a few weeks back. This week's contest honors one of the most talented, as well as nicest artist that comics have given us.
    "Marvel-ous" Marie Severin as Stan Called her. I am sure this thread will highlight her versatility.
    I will start with one of her cartoon classics.



    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.
    10) Have fun!
    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!

    With animals so real, you'd think Mike Grell drawed it. A truly multi-talented woman who did a lot to shatter glass ceilings in the comic business.

    Marie, the dawn is breaking
    Marie, you'll soon be waking
    (Ooh, Marie)
    To find you heart is aching
    And tears will fall as you recall
    (And tears will fall)




    Marie Severin pencils with Bill Everett inking.

    ^^^
    True, but it's not by Severin. It's by Big John Buscema. Maybe the original cover concept was by her since she often submitted ideas to the artists who ended up doing the covers, but the Thor #186 cover pencils here are by Buscema.

    Also, Marie Severin didn't pencil the Sub-Mariner #33 cover posted upthread by Scott Taylor. That cover is by Sal Buscema. Yes, it's speculated Severin did alterations on the cover (as she and Romita Sr. often did on the covers during that time), but the finished product here is largely Sal's.


    So I guess I am being "that person" again! If the OP says covers altered by Severin are OK, then never mind.

    Marie Severin is so underrated. Marie Severin is no Jack Kirby but draws good stuff.
