    Default Cover Contest, 2/19-2/25/2020: A Decidedly Different Debut!

    And now, for this week's contest, I present:

    A DECIDEDLY DIFFERENT DEBUT!

    For this contest, present first ever COVER appearances of popular and famous characters….but in the pages of OTHER books and not their own, like in the example below with the Punisher’s explosive debut in Spider-Man #129!



    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!

    I never once thought this would turn out to be by far the most valuable book in my collection.

    I am suddenly discovering how many characters are not on the cover of their debut issues: Wonder Woman is not on the cover of All-Star Comics #8, Zatanna is not on the cover of Hawkman #4, Red Sonja is not on the cover of Conan the Barbarian 23, Black Canary is not on the cover Flash Comics #86...

    Face up, untouched, craving for some healing
    Take off, you're never around
    Game's up, it's too much, oh you're the king of cheating
    Take off, I'm staring at the ground

    Tell me it gets easier, tell me it gets easier
    Oh, tell me it gets easier, that I'll figure it out
    Tell me it gets easier, tell me it gets easier
    Tell me it gets easier, that I'll figure it out




    The decidedly Eisner-esque cover of the dazzling (and darkling) debut of Cloak & Dagger.

    Does the title have to be another character's vehicle or can it be an anthology title? For instance would Amazing Fantasy #15 count?

    Yeah, if books like that count then, my submission is...:



    If it’s strictly another character’s vehicle then my submission is...:



    I’ll check back and edit out whichever doesn’t apply.

    Edit: Originally posted Conan The Barbarian #24 for Red Sonja, as I misremembered her appearance in #23 as just two or three panels on the last page, similar to Wolverine in Hulk #180. Looked it up again, turns out I was wrong.

    Yeah, I was gonna go with Madame MacEvil, but she wasn't on the cover of that issue of Iron Man, either, it was the Sub-Mariner.
