    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.

    Riders on the storm
    Riders on the storm
    Into this house we're born
    Into this world we're thrown

    Like a dog without a bone
    An actor out alone
    Riders on the storm

    Lassie in a storm, looking gigantic! At night, I think. Hard to tell during a storm

    I have a strong sense that some of those entering read the first two words in the title and not the description of the contest itself.

    Don't have a cover yet. But the first thing I thought of was the page 1 splash from Tomb of Dracula #1 by Gene Colan.

    NOT AN ENTRY

    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!
