Ok, here's an idea for a fun contest. I post a section from a comic cover and you guys try and guess what cover it's from.Whoever guesses correctly, gets to post a portion of a cover themselves, and we all get to guess. It's not good form to post a very tiny part of the cover, as it makes the contest too difficult.
Here's my starter - a clue is that this particular cover (like all of mine) is from the Silver-Age.
I'm going to be away for a few days, and since no one else has stepped in, I'll finish this off with thanks to Luke for a fun grouping.
Once the theme became obvious, it just took a little digging to find this cover. The theme is Marvel adaptions of print literature and characters. If anyone wants to start one before I get back next week, please go ahead.
Thanks, Hoy. It doesn't say so on the covers, but the Conan and Tarzan issues are both adaptations too. Conan the Barbarian #4 is an adaptation of "The Tower of the Elephant", and Tarzan #1 is the first part of an adaptation of Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar.
The GCD credits the Supernatural Thrillers #4 cover to Ron Wilson and Ernie Chan with alterations by John Romita. It says it was Wilson's first cover.
Conan the Barbarian #4's cover was by Barry Windsor-Smith, pencils and inks. I really like the covers from the title's first year.
The Tarzan cover is a homage to that of the issue of The All-Story in which Tarzan first appeared. John Buscema inked his own pencils, both on the cover and inside.
The GCD credits Marvel Classics Comics #23's cover to Ernie Chan, pencils and inks.
