    Yes, when it came to running their prison camps those Nazis were very progressive about racial integration!

    Heh. To be fair, Klink wasn't a Nazi, just a butt-kissing tool.

    not sure why I like this one, but it gets my vote.
    I think restorative nostalgia is the number one issue with comic book fans.
    A fine distinction between two types of Nostalgia:

    Reflective Nostalgia allows us to savor our memories but accepts that they are in the past
    Restorative Nostalgia pushes back against the here and now, keeping us stuck trying to relive our glory days.

    It's no longer the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, but it's time to tally the votes:

    1 vote: Ajax_X, Greg Hatcher, Icctrombone, Iron Maiden, Kai "the spy", Shalla Bal
    2 votes: foxley, Scott Taylor, Tami, worstblogever

    And we have a stalemate with four votes each for Kirby101 and seismic-2. Will someone cast the deciding vote?

    Note: one vote was cast to WBE. Rather than being discarded, it has been attributed to worstblogever.

    Thank you everyone, and apologies to those of you (and I suspect there are many) who would have posted that same haunting Kirby cover had I not done so first. Thanks to kjn for counting the votes and running the tie-breaker, and special thanks to MRP for choosing an appropriate theme for Veteran's Day, and one which allows me to express my own gratitude for the service of my late father, a WWII vet. In the WWII thread on this same forum, I posted a photo of him riding a camel in Egypt while he was on his way to the China-Burma-India Theater, where he was deployed for the rest of the war. Thanks, Dad!

    I'll have a new contest posted later this morning, if all goes well. If not, I'll do it this afternoon after I get back from appointments.

    So close! Congrats to seismic for the worthy win. And thanks for the votes for my Kubert cover.
    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!
