    Default Cover Contest 10/28-11/3/2020 "Bernie!"

    The old cardboard box of comics always had lots of 70's horror and sci/fi books,
    in honor of the season,

    Post for me a cool Bernie Wrightson cover (does not need to be halloween related)

    One from the old box, I had to go get a nice copy for the current collection.







    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 PDT (3AM EDT) and Runs Until 12 AM Tuesday PDT (3 AM EDT)! (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!

    Can't say I know of him, but this cover is a classic

    «Speaking generally, it is because of the desire of the tragic poets for the marvellous that so varied and inconsistent an account of Medea has been given out» (Diodorus Siculus, The Library of History [4.56.1])

    He had a way with monsters that were uniquely Wrightson.




    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!

    Bernie Wrightson… did he make a lot of horrific pictures…

    I had this one in my hands, one of the rare comics in color of him I had. (In color, it’s less horrific…)

    I have this one at home, collected at some point during my "collect everything Man-Thing" phase.

    Every day is a gift, not a given right.

    My first entry I was informed was not drawn by Bernie just inked by him. (Thanks Kirby for the heads up) So i added a new entry.
