    Love that cover Shalla. Here is a larger cleaner version if you would like.

    I used this one before, but maybe it fits this theme?

    Yeah, that's why I included the textless version. One's got more of a contrast in format, the other's contrast is more apparent in the image itself.

    Here is how it would look if they kept the original value and color.

    NOT AN ENTRY!

    Lots of contrasts here on multiple levels.

    A contrast in color has changed everything.
    A contrast in color between you and me.

    Not 100% sure if this fits, but the colours definitely 'pop' for me.

    You might be right. Marvel database has it as Colan, but GCD has Adkins. It does look more like Adkins. I'll edit.

    This is such a great idea for a contest theme. My hats off to Zelena Lots of great choices so far!
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    Thank you, I appreciate that ...but I like to post covers that reflect wear and tear and aren't all cleaned up. I deliberately seek out older looking versions, as long as the cover isn't too faded and can be seen (I'd considered using that HA version too, and had added it via my Imgur account earlier...but I decided on using the worn-out cover image instead).

    It may sound silly, but I think I've mentioned how much I personally dislike using (for example) those mycomicshop.com images that are all pristine and with their insignia on the side. Way back when I first started in this contest I used to post images of my own copies of a comic, but in the last couple of years I became too lazy
    ....so instead I post older looking images that I find online. The more "authentic" looking a cover image is, the more it appeals to me.
