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.
This had to be a WWII cover, because it's a German tank; and it had to be DC, because the artist is Joe Kubert. But there also had to be a curve. Then I got it:
Showcase #53 (1964).
Right you are, sir!
Thanks, Luke. This is a fun game, but I think it needs some parameters. At least, for my submissions, to give everyone a fighting chance. And since Steve W didn't provide any limitations for the game overall, here will be the ones I use in selecting my excerpts from covers:
1. I will use only covers of comics published in the Golden and Silver and Bronze Ages; essentially, 1939-94. Yes, that widens the scope.
2. The good news is I will draw from covers of issues published by DC and Marvel only. That narrows the field, I believe, sufficiently.
With those requirements in place, here is my next submission:
The GCD found a couple more for me. He drew an unused cover for the Superman vs. Mumammad Ali tabloid - I've seen that online - the Superman/Demon cover and story for DC Comics Presents #66, and an alternative cover for Superman: World of New Krypton #8.
In Superman #216 Superman assists US troops fighting the Vietnam War. It's by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru, and not very good.
Maybe we need a time limit on each submission?
