    Default CBR Cover Contest: Nov. 2- Nov.8, Favorite Colan Cover

    I thought I would do a contest of the best cover from just one artist. Maybe Kirby or Buscema or Adams, but decided to go with the Gent that won me the last contest, and one of my all time favorite artists.

    Favorite Gene Colan Cover

    So find the cover by Gene the Dean you like best.

    From his first spectacular run on Dr. Strange



    Good luck to all.


    COVER CONTEST CANON (aka THE RULES):

    * Post One (& ONLY ONE) Cover that fits the theme of this Week's Contest!
    * Cover must be from a Published Comic Book or Collected Volume!
    * Covers must be Posted before Voting Begins!
    * Voting Begins 12 AM Tuesday 11/02 and Runs Until 12 AM Wednesday 11/03 PST (3 AM EST)!
    * 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!
    * The Winner of the Contest is the Entry 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, you Don't need to Argue it in the thread, Simply Don't Vote for It!
    * Occasionally Voting will Result in a Tie! The Person Who Started the Thread and Thus will do the Counting that Week will Usually call for a TIE-Breaking Vote from Someone who has Not Yet Voted!
    * 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!

    Cool Rob. Early 60s DC Colan. I think he was under contract and used the name Adam Austin when he started working for Marvel. As if his style wasn't instantly recognizable.

    So many great covers from him, but I have always liked this one a lot:

    A bat! That's it! It's an omen.. I'll shall become a bat!

    Dracula, Dr Strange, Rainbows and a horse. This cover has it all.

    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.
