    Default Cover Contest 5/27-6/2 That's my favorite!

    Ok, so I want to move away from pandemic themes at least for a week, and celebrate the love of comics. And I like themes that reveal something about the poster's tastes in comics and let's voters just pick the cover that resonates best with them, so this week the theme is "That's my favorite artist..." Post a cover by your favorite artist who worked in comics...

    There's 2 or 3 that vie for that spot for me, but I will go with this one for my lead off example...

    Frank Frazetta...




    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, Graphic Novel, 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)! (This is in US time)
    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!

    Much as I love George Perez, my favorite comic book artist is the immortal Dan DeCarlo of Archie Comics fame, and this is one of my most memorable Betty and Veronica covers with Betty wearing jeans so damn tight, they look spray painted on! And her pose kicked up the cheesecake appeal by a factor of ten! YOWSA! Only Mr. DeCarlo could make a teenage girl in casual clothes look sexy af!

    I just wanna be your favorite

    Won't you let me be your favorite?


    There are so many artists I could have put here: Neal Adams, Jim Aparo, Gil Kane, Mike Grell, Joe Kubert, Art Adams, Tony DeZuniga, Adam Hughes, Bernie Wrightson...The list goes on and on. But when was I getting into superhero comics in my early teens, the book that really hooked me was New Teen Titans by Wolfman and Perez. So I'm giving this spot to George Perez.

    I donít know what it was about Gil Kane, but as a kid, his covers always drew my eye.Hereís one of the earliest examples of an homage cover I can remember.
    I didnít even realize why it looked familiar at first.

    John Byrne for me too. I love the FF, I love She-Hulk, and I absolute love the story, which for a change did not involve superheroes beating up supervillains and was grounded with down-to-Earth issues (as much as it can be dealt with in superhero comics). It was also ahead of its time with the phenomenon of paparazzi. Although one can say that Jackie Kennedy in the 60's started it, the notoriety reached its peak much later with Princess Diana.
