    Default Cover Contest 9/28 Thru 10/4- Firefighters

    For the past couple weeks, I've been watching a show from the 1970s called EMERGENCY!. I watched it as a kid but remembered very little of the actual episodes or characters. It's great! It's about two Firefighters/Paramedics in LA back when trained emergency response teams were just an experiment.
    Some of you may be old enough to remember this show. I recommend it if you've not seen it before. None of the personal drama bs like today's shows. It's more of a real-world depiction of the day-to-day activities of the people who responded to these emergencies back then.


    This week post a cover featuring firefighters. My example below:


    Post one (and only one) cover that fits the theme of this week's contest.
    Covers must be from a published comic book, collected volume or graphic novel.
    Covers must be posted before voting begins.
    Voting begins 12 AM Tuesday and runs until 12 AM Wednesday PST.
    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 tally votes.
    The winner of the contest is the entrant with the most votes after the voting period.
    It's okay to discuss the covers but if you think someone's entry doesn't fit the theme or violates the rules don't argue it in the thread - simply don't vote for it.
    Most importantly, remember that we're here to have fun. Enjoy!

    Joe Kubert art. For years Kubert, and then his students, drew these informational give-aways that were published by the National Fire Protection Association. They offered tips on fire prevention and safety, and they were distributed by fire departments and at schools.

    Emergency was such a great show. I used to watch the reruns with my parents.

    Here is one of the greatest fire fighters of all time.

    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!

    Emergency! was a great show. I liked the whole cast, but my favorite cast member by far was Randy Mantooth. Talk about hot!

    You see, last year, in Victoria, down a smoke-filled forest track,
    Some real heroes and real heroines tried to turn the bushfire back;
    All through the day they fought the blaze, exhaustion, heat, and fear,
    Ordinary Aussie men and women; CFS volunteers.

    But the fire turned like a cornered snake; rolled down the mountain side;
    And in that choking, smoking, hell, five brave men died.
    Not for medals, not for money, not for glory, not for fame.
    And tell me who amongst you now remembers their names.

    But I want to run to mountain top and shout their names out loud;
    They made me feel Australian, and that made me feel proud.

    Yes, there are firefighters here. Just not the kind you're thinking of.



    And Power Girl is back for anyone wishing to use the cover.
